I'm coming up from North Carolina, can't focus at work. My friend and I plan on coming up relatively early (we should get there between 2-3 PM) and check out the Place, and I'd like to check out the tailgating scene. I've never tailgated before. I'm wondering what the norms of tailgating are, for instance, if I just wander around will it just be awkward, with people hanging out with their buds, not really interested in interacting with straggler tools like myself? Should I bring peace offerings like sausages or beers, or would that be considered gay? More geneally, how's that whole scene work, can someone paint a picture, or even post a picture that would be cool. What's it like tailgating before a Patriots game? I'm not being very productive at work this week, too excited. God I hope the Pats beat those clocky bastards.
