Tailgate Recap (9/7/09)

Despite the fact that the Rutger's game yesterday bordered on unwatchable, the tailgate before hand was quite solid.

I arrived at 11am for the 4 o'clock game, which I felt was a reasonable amount of time to tailgate. As I walked to the lot my friends and I are in, I got to see the new closed endzone of Rutgers Stadium. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen (Most beautiful things I have ever seen: 1) My Wife 2) Rutger's Stadium's closed Endzone 3) New born puppies). It was amazing. Did I cry? No. I'm not a girl. But, I did get choked up. It was beautiful in the way only $100 million can buy you.

First up at the tailgate from Lenny (he handles all the cooking at the tailgate, and frankly, is out of his mind. No standard hot dogs and burgers) Grilled Cheese Burgers. It's a burger with two grilled cheese sandwiches as the bun. Correct. A BURGER BETWEEN TWO GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES! HOW AM I STILL ALIVE RIGHT NOW? It was, as you could imagine, incredible. Hey, I can't feel my left arm?

After downing the burger I ate a couple of the cupcakes my wife made, plus a few carrots from the veggie tray to counteract the other food I. I was actually most likely getting healthier.

Up next: Live Lobster. Shut up! Live lobster at a tailgate. Yes. (By the way that is Lenny in the picture. Not me. And a lobster. Again not me.) Nothing goes better with cheap cans of beer than fresh grilled lobster. It was delicious.

Before heading into the stadium, we had some chipotle marinated chicken tenders which I enjoyed with two pieces of broccoli, which helped negate the fact that I just ate three days worth of calories.
