August is the time to start thinking about Football. NFL Training Camps have started, and it’s Back to Work as the 2017-18 NFL Season is just getting started.

It all begins at the Hall.

The Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys will travel to Canton in August to kick off the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls. The Cowboys and Cardinals will face each other in the Hall of Fame Game on Thursday, Aug. 3 in the spectacular new Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

Unlike other NFL games, the NFL Hall of Fame Game is played in a historic high school stadium. But there are alot more games to be played this month, 65 all told – including a record 14 live games on NFL Network. Click here for the week to week schedule, team by team schedule and of course, every nationally televised game.

The boys of summer continue to fight it out for the right to compete in the postseason with another slate of grueling hot summer games. We got you covered with the full schedule of games including all of the ones on national television.

Speaking of the World Series (and the boys of summer), and free baseball,  8 U.S. and 8 international teams vie for the Little League championship with their annual tournament. There was alot of rumbling about the LLWS moving to LA, but this year they will continue to play in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where they have played there since 1947. But before they can get to the big game, they have to win their way in. The FANFOOD Little League World Series section have links to the full schedule of games.

If that tournament doesn’t get you excited, maybe this one will. The highlight of the month (and ATP Tour) starts August 29th and carries over into September with the men’s final on Sunday September 11. More than 700,000 fans will enter the gates at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Anything can happen on the hard courts.

This year, the major pros in golf square off at the summer thriller – the PGA Championship playing from August 7 – August 13, 2017 — at the Quail Hallow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. This year marks the 99th edition of the PGA Championship, as thousands of golf fans line up for the hottest ticket in professional golf.

If watching cars fly around a small track (especially at night) is your thing, than you will love Saturday August 19 as the green flag goes down and the lights go on at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. The party atmosphere at Bristol makes this one of the “one of the best damn races” on the NASCAR schedule. We got links to all of the races for you.

But if all that wasn’t enough for you, August is also home to National Smores Day on the 10th, National Dog Day on the 26th.

But Most importantly, The month of August marks the return of the NFL and soon to be College Football, and this means Tailgating. It’s a large part of American culture, and is enjoyed today more than ever. The food, the drink, the friends, this act of pre-celebration before the big game or concert has often become more important than the events themselves.

Everyone has their own version of a tailgate party, and nobody wants to be told what to do and how to do it. Click here for an article prepared to help you enhance your next tailgate party with some tips and tricks from across the web, and the ones we picked up along the way.

Stay Cool, my friends and enjoy yourselves this summer.

Major League Baseball

The Dodgers are just plain good. They are by far the cream of the MLB crop. Where we have the biggest questions are with the other nine teams chasing them. Will the injury to Correa hurt the ‘stros significantly? will the Nat’s solve the back end of their bullpen? Who will come out on top of the AL East? the NL Central? What about out west in the NL?  We got two months to figure things out and we know they will.  Stay frosty.

 

Here are the FANFOOD Top 10 as we make our way into August: 

 

  1. Dodgers
  2. Astros
  3. Nationals
  4. Diamondbacks
  5. Rockies
  6. Yankees
  7. Cubs
  8. Red Sox
  9. Brewers
  10. Rays

Training camp is where it all starts and when teams begin forming the group of players that will take them through the 2017 season. As camps unfold and teams slowly dwindle down to their 53-man rosters. Training camp is used in several different ways. New players and coaches use it to acclimate themselves to new teammates and systems. For younger players, it serves as a period of evaluation; for veterans, it is time to round back into form. Training camp is divided into several different components. The first is scrimmages. These are pseudo-games where teams run nearly full games’ worth of plays. Sometimes, two practice sessions are held on the same day. This concept is referred to as two-a-days. Other parts of training camp include drills, meetings with coaches and other players at one’s position, weight training, and pre-season games. The latter half of training camp leads directly into the exhibition season. More and more teams are practicing close to home. In fact, 20 out of 32 NFL teams hold camp at home. Here are the practice locations for all the teams in the NFL along with the start dates.

Here are the practice locations for all the teams in the NFL along with the start dates.

Only 11 teams are going away for camp, both because many teams just find it easier to stay in their multi-million dollar facilities and because the new CBA cut down on camp time and on-field hours.

Though all teams can report for camp 15 days before their preseason opener, each team manages open practices and some early workouts differently. Below is a list of every team’s first full practice; teams that leave their home sites/facilities for camp are noted, as are key training camp dates.

The 2017 Hall of Fame Game will showcase the new Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium that was recently profiled among “13 Game-Changing NFL Stadiums” by Forbes. The stadium and entertainment complex is a major component of the $600 million Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village underway on the Hall’s campus. Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, upon its completion this summer, will feature a new NFL-caliber press box plus world-class hospitality experiences in a variety of settings that provide patrons with a spectacular view overlooking Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village.

The preseason classic takes place two days before the Class of 2017 is formally enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The annual Enshrinement Ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 5 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. The Cowboys’ Owner/President/General Manager JERRY JONES and former Cardinals quarterback KURT WARNER are among the seven-man Class of 2017 that also includes MORTEN ANDERSEN, TERRELL DAVIS, KENNY EASLEY, JASON TAYLOR and LADAINIAN TOMLINSON.

Jones purchased the Cowboys in 1989 and quickly restored a winning tradition to the franchise. He has led the Cowboys to unprecedented success on and off the field. The Cowboys made seven playoff appearances, claimed six division titles and wins in Super Bowls XXVII, XVIII and XXX in Jones’ first decade of owning the team. Under his guidance, the team has advanced to the playoffs 13 times. In addition, his leadership in sports marketing and promotion has influenced the landscape of the NFL and America’s sports culture.

Warner’s Hall of Fame career was capped by five seasons in Arizona during which time he led the Cardinals to their first division title since 1975 and the franchise’s first-ever Super Bowl appearance in the 2008 season. The undrafted quarterback whose road to the NFL included stops in the Arena Football League and NFL Europe also played with the St. Louis Rams (1998-2003) and New York Giants (2004). Warner was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player twice and the MVP of Super Bowl XXXIV when he led the Rams to victory with a then Super Bowl record 414 passing yards.

Little League World Series

 

In some ways even more hotly contested than the Major League World Series for which it is named, the Little League World Series of baseball was first played in 1947 in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, and has been held at the same location in August ever since.

With 11-12 year-olds taking the field, national pride is on the line as 8 U.S. and 8 international teams vie for the title of Little League champion. The final game, by tradition, is always slated on the weekend just before Labor Day in the USA.

PGA Championship

 

This year, the major pros in golf square off at the summer thriller – the PGA Championship playing from August 7 – August 13, 2017 — at the Quail Hallow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.

This year marks the 99th edition of the PGA Championship, as thousands of golf fans line up for the hottest ticket in professional golf. That includes the deepest international field of players — including Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson, Padraig Harrington, Rory McIlroy and and defending 2016 champ Jimmy Walker — competing for the coveted Wanamaker Trophy with a total purse of $10 million.

NOTES:

 

The PGA Championship trophy, one of the largest in golf, is named after department store magnate Rodman Wanamaker, himself a keen golfer and in part responsible for founding the PGA.

• The silver Wanamaker Trophy measures 28 inches high and 27 inches across at its widest point. It weighs 27 pounds.

• The Wanamaker Trophy was famously lost in 1927 when, as the story goes, that year’s winner, Walter Hagen, asked a taxi driver to take it to his hotel. It never arrived. The trophy was later found in an unmarked box in a cellar of the L.A. Young & Company – makers of Walter Hagen-brand golf clubs – in Detroit.

• Today, a replica of the Wanamaker Trophy is given to each year’s winner and the original is kept at the PGA Historical Center in Port Lucie, Florida.

• The purse for the first PGA Championship back in 1916 was $2,580, with $500 going to the winner. The winner’s share hit $100,000 for the first time in 1983 and $1 million for the first time in 2003.

• American-born players have won 77 PGA Championships. South Africa and Australia are next with four each, followed by Scotland, England and Fiji with two each.

• In the modern era, Jack Nicklaus holds the most PGA Championship titles with five followed by Tiger Woods with four.

Tailgating is an art form; a delicate balance between fandom and celebration.  It’s a large part of American culture, and is enjoyed today more than ever. The food, the drink, the friends, this act of pre-celebration before the big game or concert has often become more important than the events themselves.

Everyone has their own version of a tailgate party, and nobody wants to be told what to do and how to do it. This article is prepared to help you enhance your next tailgate party with some tips and tricks from across the web, and the ones we picked up along the way.

We have tailgated across the country at well over 100 events from the Super Bowl to the Rose Bowl, NASCAR  and countless concerts and festivals.

Whether you are a die-hard experienced parking lot party-er or you are just getting started, here are our Tailgate Party Tips & Tricks, you might just get an idea for the next one.

Know the Rules

Every venue has it’s own rules and you need to know them. If you are tailgating at a venue for the first time or just want a refresher course, find your venue website and read and understand the rules, this will go a long way in your planning and preparation.

 

Top of Page

Prepare for Success

If you are a die hard tailgater, you already have all of your supplies together and ready to go. You don’t want to be running around the night before or the day off looking for all your supplies. Gather everything now and put them together in a room in your house or garage.

Check the Weather

This is obvious. You need to follow the forecast in the days leading up to the big event.

When you wake up on GameDay, plan accordingly. Here is a link you can use.

Here is the Weather Section of FANFOOD Fantasy Football with some more links for you.

Pack the Standards

You might be the lead tailgater or you might be joining a party. No matter what your role is this day, you need to have at least the basics packed and ready to go:

 

Game Tickets (pack them in the car you will be using the night before)
Cash
Water
Snack Food
Hand Sanitizer
Sun Glasses
Sunscreen
Garbage Bags

If you have all these items at minimum, you can enjoy going to the game and tailgating.

Layers of Clothes - weather needs

No matter the weather, always dress in layers. Weather can change drastically during a long day of tailgating.

Better to have what you need then to need what you don’t have.

Bring Sunglasses & Sunscreen

Be Sun Smart. You may have crisp weather at some of your tailgates, but don’t forget about protecting yourself from the sun. Bring sunglasses and sunscreen to prevent sunburns. You will know what to expect when you check the weather forecast, but as we just said, things can change.

Go with a Theme

It might be a big rivalry, or it could be close to a holiday (i.e. Christmas) It is always fun to make your tailgate party theme related.

 

Top of Page

 

————

 

 

Create a Menu

This depends on your theme, and even if you don’t have one, you should create a menu anyway (even if it is just for your own use)

This will help with your shopping, prep and help list. Print out the recipes you want to make and make sure to prepare everything you can in the days leading up to the event.

Prepare a Checklist

No need to recreate the wheel here, many websites have a checklist you can use

If you don’t want to use their’s, create your own, print it out, and refer to it often.

Just Don’t forget your game tickets.

Send out the Invites

You may have the usual suspects attending, you may be a season ticket holder, you may tailgate in the same spot each game. Doesn’t matter, it’s always good to send out information to your guests. Especially if it the party is theme related. Use Social Media, you’ll see later how it will help.

Get Help

This goes hand in hand with the invites. Don’t try to do everything yourself. Get help from your friends. Make sure to give out specific instructions so you don’t end up with 8 bowls of potato salad.

Make a Playlist

Pick enough songs to last through the entire tailgate that everyone will listen to. Know your audience and stay away from offensive songs if there will be little ones there.

Put Your Game Tickets in the Car the Night Before

You don’t want to forget the most important thing, the tickets. You could be rushed and running around packing the car the day of the event. It’s easy to overlook things like the tickets.

Keep a Tailgating Toolbox in your car

For serious tailgaters only – Keep a fully stocked toolbox with supplies in your car.

Freeze Water Bottles or Freeze Balloons in Your Team Colors

Freeze Water bottles and use them in your cooler. You can also make ice cubes with food coloring or skip the boring ice and go out and get black and gold balloons for your next STEELERS Tailgate (or the team colors of your choice). check this pinterest page for ideas

Prep Food Before you leave

This is another obvious tip, but do EVERYTHING you can BEFORE you leave. Things like, marinating and skewering the meat, forming the burgers, making up the sandwich toppings tray, making your smoking pouches, etc. The least you have to prep in the parking lot the better.

Bring Enough to Share

The Golden rule of Tailgating is to always bring enough to share with your parking lot neighbors. There is no room for being stuck up here, even if the poor slobs next to you are Ravens Fans.

Bring a Plastic Tub for Dirty Dishes

You are going to have dirty dishes, even if you plan on using disposable plates, etc. Do yourself a favor and bring a big plastic tub to put all the dirty stuff in, especially if you are using real plates, etc.

 

Top of Page

 

————

 

Don’t Forget the Jumper Cables

These should be in your trunk anyway, but they are even more important in the parking lot, when you have been draining your car battery with music, TV, etc.

 

Top of Page

 

————

 

Get There Early

This goes back to knowing the rules. When does the lot open? Do you have a favorite spot? What color is your parking pass? What is the weather supposed to be like? How much time do your guests want to spend outside? The answers to all these questions and more, will determine when you should get there.

Our advice, get there early and if there is a spot near a real bathroom, get it. Plan to arrive four hours before the game starts. Then eat two hours before the game so you have plenty of time to set up and clean up.

Use a Balloon To Stand Out

Here is a cool trick for when you are meeting up with people. Bring a BIG Team balloon, or numbers of your favorite player like the # 7 above, ether will do. Fly it high so your guests can find you.

 

Top of Page

 

————

 

 

Use Social Media

If there is ever a time to use facebook and it’s “check in” feature it is now. Once you have your spot and have your balloon flying, take a pic, check into your favorite social media sharred with your guests that are going to be joining your tailgate party. Nobody wants to be walking around on the phone during the tailgate party trying to find where Joey and the kids are. You got beers to drink, burgers to eat and footballs to toss.

Set Up a CarBar

Convert the back of your car into a fully-stocked bar with a set of shelves.

Consider Wind Direction

Now we are talking about the fun part, grilling in the parking lot. We have so many BBQ tips for you when it comes to this, but the first and foremost thing you need to consider is the wind direction, and where you are going to set up the cooker.

Know How to Light a Grill

Remember FANFOOD RULES #2Never Use Lighter Fluid.

There are so many ways to light your charcoal, why would anyone use lighter fluid? While you might think it is easier, you NEVER want use lighter fluid or any kind of charcoal that is self-lighting (ones that have an additive to make it start without lighter fluid). Lighter fluid and these additives can leave behind a bad taste that you don’t want.

Charcoal should be clean and produce virtually no smoke when fully lit.

There are simple ways to light a charcoal grill without lighter fluid, Click Here for ways that are good to best

Grill with Success

You probably don’t need us to tell you how to grill, but have you mastered the reverse sear technique? Do you know that you never want to put a cold steak on a hot grill? These are just a couple of tips and techniques that we offer on this website.

Do You Have a Plan for Used Charcoal?  It might sound obvious, but if you cook with charcoal, you need to have a plan on what you are going to do after the cook. Properly disposing of used charcoal is more than simply sending it to the landfill. You can get much more use out of it and if you BBQ as much as I do, you can save money too.

We are talking about tailgate cooking here, so we don’t have the luxury of waiting 48 hours for the coals to completely cool, plus we are not going to be bringing them home with us.  So what do we do?

You have a couple of options.

Check if your Venue has a Hot Coals Container

Let your coals burn down as much as possible. Scoop out and place in a disposable fold pan with some holes poked in. Pour water over coals. once cooled put in trash bag.

Bring a Metal Bucket - for still-glowing coals to transport to the Hot Coals Container

Do not use Galvanized Metal – This will put of noxious fumes.

Set up a Hand Washing Station with Santizer

Go to Costo and buy a big laundry soap dispenser. When you have used it all, Wash it out and fill it with hot water and bring it to your next tailgate party. Set it up like the picture above to be used as a hand washing station. Don’t forget the sanitizer.

Watch TV on the Parking Lot

If you want to throw the best tailgate party in the lot, why not bring take TV with you? You have options to get the games.

Of course there is always over air broadcasting, but if you have the  DirecTV Sunday Ticket, it is easier than ever.

First, you will need to get a screen mirroring device for your TV. Here are some links for you to check out

Android

Apple

Display the games on your phone or tablet and mirror to your TV it’s that simple. No wires, no Tailgate Satellite Dish KitCheck out this one from Amazon.

You can also use a slingbox. plug it into a projector connect it to the internet, and display your home channels on a screen.

With all the advances in technology, and abundance of mobile apps out there, you should have no problem watching LIVE sports in the lot, you just need to power it up.

Make a Chip Bag Bowl

No need to dump the chips into a bowl you will have to clean, or throw away. Use the bag that it comes in turn it into a bowl.

Turn a Case of Beer into a Disposable Cooler

In lieu of a cooler, get a case of your favorite drinks, empty it and line it with two garbage bags (so it doesn’t leak), then put the drinks back in and add ice. Afterwards, put the whole thing in the trash. Double the bag so you don’t have any leaks

Keep Organized

Here are some tips to keep you organized during your tailgate party. (1) Bring a pre-packed set of drawers so everything is handy and organized while you’re cooking. Designate and label drawers: One for napkins, plates and utensils; one for koozies and bottle openers and cups; one for SPF and insect repellant, etc. (2) A clear shoe organizer is great for storing napkins, cups, koozies and more to free up room on the table. Bonus points because it rolls up for easy storage after the game. (3) Hang a paper towel roll using a bungee cord from the tent struts.

Eat with your Hands

Nature’s Utensils. Try preparing everything you can eat with your two hands, show off your hand washing station and keep it simple with finger foods. Cook and serve your whole lobsters another day. Serve breakfast you can eat with your hands, like sausage and bacon wrapped in pancakes.

 

Top of Page

 

————

 

 

Keep Cool Food Chilled

If you can’t serve just finger food and you must serve sides and salads, keep them chilled. Bring some extra ice and turn the lid of the salad bowl upside down, fill with ice and put your salad on top. Consider using a large aluminum foil container filled with ice and placing all your sides on top of the ice.

Class it Up

Using clear plastic plates and silver plasticware can class up the joint, Using a cupcake stand, decorative paper towel holder, and chalkboard make this look especially nice.

Cooler Packing 101 & Personalized Water Bottles

You might think that simply dumping a case of cans in a cooler and topping it with ice it the way to go. Sure that is one way. Here is another.

 

 

If you want a little extra touch, print out your own labels for your water bottles with the date and matchup and the name of your Tailgate Party.

 

Here is a template you can use, Or a google search for more.

Drink in Moderation

You will want to feel the need to drink heavily before going in the stadium, because you don’t want to pay the hefty price inside for adult beverages, but don’t do it. Drink in Moderation.

It is a long game, and long tailgate party, pace yourself and don’t be that person talked about all season long. Remember, tempers can get heated during and after a game, you’ll want to keep a level head.

Always have a Designated Driver

 

Do we really need to explain why this is important?

Enjoy the Game

Win or Lose, enjoy yourself.

These tickets aren’t cheap and you need to make the best of it.

Have fun! Enjoy the game and your guests. It’s an experience and up to you to make it a good one or bad one.

The PostGate

As Lee Brice says… “There’s ain’t no party like the after party!” So set up some chairs, take out some leftovers.

If you are using a gas grill, why not cook some fresh food? (don’t bother lighting new charcoal).

It’s going to take time for people to leave the parking lot and if Your Team wins your gunna want to raise a toast.

You can either wait in traffic or eat some food, it’s up to you.

Make sure to use your DD for the trip home.

 

Top of Page

Leave Your Area Clean

This is another obvious tip, but you HAVE to leave the parking lot the way you found it, It’s a parking lot, not a trash heap! Stay Classy!

Use your garbage bags, dispose of your hot coals the proper way and respect the venue.

Don’t be that group we have all seen leaving their trash all over the lot.
