I joined the raider nation in the 1970s. The first game that I remember watching was in 1975. I was six years-old and I picked the team because I liked pirates. I still remember the pride I felt a few years later when my team won the ’77 Superbowl.
It was awesome.
In the years that have since come and gone I have spent more than a few moments watching football games on television and in the stands.Â I can’t think of a time where tailgating wasn’t a part of the experience. Some of my friends will argue that you can’t tailgate at home but they would be wrong. You can tailgate wherever you are at.
But what you cannot replicate at home is the energy and excitement of being part of the crowd. Sometimes that feeling is absolutely electric and it is part of the experience that is simply awesome. The question is how to create that every time or at least try to. And to me that is where tailgating comes into play.
A good tailgating experience helps to set the tone and today Subway is going to help you with that. Yes, we are running a contest here. It starts today, December 15 and runs through Wednesday December 21.Â Here are the highlights:

This is the line where I let you and the FTC know that the fine folks at Subway provided me with my own gift card, hand warmers and gloves free of charge. Someone tell Jared to relax, they didn’t ask me to be their spokesperson…yet.
