We were missing a few family members (my Wolverine and Spartan daughters and two nephews), but we were joined by my brother and his family at our tailgate on Saturday and we took a photo of the family group we did have. It was rivalry weekend and our family is divided, like so many families in Michigan, between Michigan and Michigan State. Even my husband was wearing a little of both colors with his green and white for MSU, and a little maize and blue from his "proud Michigan Dad" pin. It's all in good fun and the game went to Michigan this year.
We were setting up our tailgate before the sun was up, but were amazed at the balmy temperatures so late in October. Breakfast was on the menu and we were cooking pancakes, sausages and omelettes made to order. We also had a big pot of chili and grilled cheese sandwiches cooking after the game, along with dips and chips. No one ever goes hungry at our tailgates and we are happy to feed anyone who stops by.
Only two more home games and tailgates to go, but so far, we've had a successful tailgate season; nice weather, good food and drinks and most importantly great times with friends and family.
