Tailgating at Eagles-Jets NFL game

With friends and family, I tailgated outside of the Eagles-Jets game, scarfing beer, bratwurst, chips and, yes, hot tea.

The game was a hoot too — a 45-19 win for the Eagles to keep their slim playoff hopes alive in my first full NFL game.

I picked up some lessons for tailgating:

  • When it’s cold, you need a lot more charcoal than you realize.
  • Plates, forks, cups, tongs and other utensils do, uh, help.
  • Thermos of hot water for tea is a good idea, but need travel mugs (and whiskey)
  • Blankets were a great choice, in addition to thermals and jackets and hats and gloves
  • Lots of meat: at least three for each person
  • Hot dogs, bratwurst and sausages with great rolls were good choices
  • Bring some tin foil of peppers and onions
  • If you want to see the whole game, stop tailgating an hour before
