Hello, friend. Welcome to another installment of TAILGATE JUDGMENT. This is how we do things, if you're new here:
- In the comments below, describe what you had to eat and/or drink during the game(s) Sunday. Perhaps you were at the game. Perhaps you tailgated. Perhaps you watched from home or at a bar.
- I will then, time permitting, respond to your comment with a 1-through-10 rating for both your food and drink, and do my best to explain my ruling.
- You will accept this judgment as absolute and superseding of all federal, state, and/or municipal rulings.
First, let's examine a disaster. WSB-TV's Zach Klein documented the presence of this abomination at the Falcons-Seahawks game in Atlanta:
TAILGATE JUDGMENT and gimmickry are not necessarily at loggerheads. I'm certainly up for appreciating a shallow trick here and there. This, though, is a monument to to imbalance. Why someone would venture to pair a slider with a margarita is beyond me. Is that an ... orange? Is that a ... slice of bacon? I have grown weary of all these chuckleheads treating their plates and bowls as dumpsters, and now, apparently, we have decided to regard our tumblers as our own little garbage bins. Good Lord. Good grief. General Sherman, you missed a spot.
Sigh. It is your turn. Please do better.
