Working on Sunday, starting at 5AM is not to shabby when you are watching Seattle Seahawks vs New England Patriots. This is an unique occupation. Headed for Seattle to watch big guys throw pig skin around. Exciting! This experience for this NBA guy is one of many rare occasions and has been very eventful. Bus loads of fans poured into the stadium despite the pissing rain. Luckily it is more peaceful in Seattle than in Vancouver.
The parking lot is transformed into a GINORMOUS tailgate party. Ah the great American tailgate cuisine. Ribs, burgers, dips, chili, chicken wings, nachos and more game-day grub. This is man vs food vs beer. Everything has to be portable, easy to grab and ease of use for your brain cells. Throw those cutlery aside. All you need are ten fingers.
By the end of it I had forgotten to take pictures of the food because 1) I was too hungry. 2) I was too drunk. 3) I just wanted to eat.
What I can tell you is the food was flavorful of hot sauce, buffalo sauce, deep fried, grilled ribs that fell off the bones, wings drenched in saucy goodness and fries that were double fried with grease.
Here’s a picture of my beer of Budweiser.
As the was game slipping away I began to head back to the bus. Fail! I heard the fireworks go off which meant there were 2 touchdowns. The Seahawks edged the Patriots into 24-23 to beat NFL’s top-ranked offense. I should’ve stayed to drink more beer and watch the final glories.
