    Tailgate Additions

    I always like to upgrade our tailgate every year in some way, be it a minor change or a big change. This year we are adding a 28' flag pole and some flags, a 2nd tent and this beauty. Anyone else adding anything fun to their tailgate setup this year?

    I would love to get a generator and a tv to watch other games before we go into JTS, but a generator cost to much to only be used a few times a year.

    I was thinking of holding a book burning of The Last of the Mohicans this year.

    We're adding a TV and satellite. It's free to everyone except you. You have to pay $20.

    Check harbor freight. I think you can power a tv no problem.

    What if I stopped by with 6 beers? Could I watch TV and not have to pay?

    Unless you get a big one and explain it to yourself that you'll use it as a back up power source for your home during winter/thunderstorms

    I love Plenko, by far my favorite game from The Price is Right.
