I’ve seen many a great tailgate over the years following the Lions. Nothing beats a tailgate around the Eastern Market area and enjoying a beautifully constructed Bloody Mary from Vivo’s!

It’s amazing to see the battle of the barbecuers when it comes to the tailgaters and the friendliness of Lions fans eager to share their bounty of snacks and food to total strangers. I look forward to supporting our alliance to our football team this year and the support of tailgaters everywhere. Through it all, you’ve never seen a tailgate fire around here, but I could be wrong and have been known to be wrong in the past. Check out this tailgate going wrong from the Patriots-Dolphins game.

Absolute genius destroys 8 cars with grill during Pats-Dolphins game

If you ever wonder why people get stopped from having fun, remember that idiots like this are the reason. A fan, who Smokey the Bear would beat the hell out of if he had the chance, decided to leave an unattended grill in the parking lot of Hard Rock Stadium following a tailgate party.
