Tailgating - Power T Style

When The Boy invited me to the UT/Missouri game earlier this year, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. My thought process went as follows: football = tailgate = spinach dip…mmmm I love spinach dip…SURE! The day of the big event finally arrived and to my disdain, there was no spinach dip. There was however, breakfast casserole, chips & salsa, cornhole boards, and beer…lots of beer!

I've been to a few tailgates, but none as awesome as this one. We had a prime spot on top of the parking garage right across from the stadium. It was a little chilly when we got there at 5am (yea…you read that right…CRAZY BOYS!), but it turned out to be a perfect day for football.

We had great seats for the game. This is when it pays to date a Grad Student who gets tickets in the student section…no nosebleeds for us!

Even though UT lost in the 4th overtime (yes…I actually sat through 4 overtimes), we had a blast.  

Fun fact about Neyland Stadium: When full, Neyland Stadium holds enough people to be the third largest city in the state of Tennessee. Also, Peyton Manning played there (SA-WOON!).

Did I mention that we tailgated with the best dressed fan at the game?

Or that I now know all of the words to this song after listening to it on repeat for 12 hours:

On a scale of 1-10, the day was a 16 (which was Peyton's number at UT by the way).
