Tailgating in the Rain

Hello again. I just got out of class and finally get a chance to fill you dedicated readers in on a crazy weekend from coming to Allstate Arena with my boyfriend, dancing in his car, forgetting to bring cups for drinks and having to buy them at Target, and laughing at some pretty nonsensical phrases later on in the evening. My "Hockey Family", which includes: Stephanie, Taylor, Tom, Thomas, Dawn, Ron, and myself as well as other friends of friends, all tailgated from 2 until 6:30 at night and the game finally started at 7 p.m.

When it comes to tailgating, my "Hockey Family" all pitched in to bring various drinks, food, and chairs for people to sit if they didn't want to stand. Mind you the entire time we were tailgating, it was raining and often times had to gather everyone under the tent to avoid getting drenched. After that, what happened last year happened this year, my one friend Tom leaves his tent out for the wind to take and long behold, after the game, the blue tarp that served as the covering, was completely gone and the wire framework was on the side by the highway in an angular shape. It was hilarious because he wanted to save it and lets just say, it was way way way beyond saving. Anyways, the point is that, yes, tailgating is fun, with the right weather conditions and temperature. However, I can't deny the fun time I had and in fact you have the best time when unexpected events occur (sometimes). 

- Story time: Have you had a really positive or negative experience while tailgating? Feel free to share! :) 

Go Wolves!!!! <3
