I love football; back home I cheered for The Washington Redskins. Cheering for an NFL team was the norm, but after moving farther south I was taught that it’s college football that rules the fall. Unfortunately my alma mater doesn’t have a football team to cheer for. I know, can you believe that!? You have to give it to ol’ George Mason University though, we’re not too shabby on the basketball court. I can’t say I’m much of a basketball fan, though. Anyway, back to football. My guy is an AU graduate so I’ve dated into being an Auburn fan. Most people here, however, are Georgia fans. We may be in the minority, but I don’t mind one bit that my house wears orange & navy and yells “War Eagle!” on autumn Saturdays.
To kick off The Blogger Bowl I’m sharing my tailgate setup featuring Auburn bits from Swoozies and ideas for what to bring or serve when you cheer on Auburn or your favorite team.

To go along with Toomer’s Corner inspired lemonade, orange & blue fruit salad, wings and candied popcorn I decided to give tailgaters a chance to get in on making their own game day grub.
