A couple of years ago the University passed new rules regarding tailgating that didn't go over very well with the Bulldog faithful. RVs can only park at the intramural fields and not until after 6:00 p.m. on Friday. You can no longer park your cars on the sidewalks. Tailgating is restricted to certain areas.
I don't really care about these because we tailgate at my mom's since she lives within walking distance of the stadium. Most of the fans are used to the rules and don't give anybody any problems anymore.
But on Friday I saw a sign prohibiting tailgating hat I never thought I would see. I didn't think you would HAVE to make a sign like this: a sign prohibiting tailgating IN A CEMETERY! In a pre-Revolutionary war cemetery, no less. A cemetery that is actively undergoing restoration.
If you have to be told not to tailgate in a cemetery, you have some serious issues my friend.
UPDATED TO ADD: Apparently there ARE some people who need to be told. Central Michigan's backup quarterback -- and journalism major -- writes a blog at NCAA.com and wrote the following about his experiences in Athens:
“Ball game aside, the trip to Athens, Ga., was quite an experience. … The hilly campus was rife with tailgaters for over a mile along the bus route to the stadium. There was one scene so bizarre and frankly a bit frightening that offensive tackle Andrew Hartline nudged me and had me look out the window.
“Groups of people were tailgating in a cemetery. Welcome to SEC football.”
