On any given week, there’s plenty to worry about when making an episode of Tailgate Fan. From praying that the fan base shows up in droves…
To losing light for night games…
From being able to pull off a bit that involves painting my entire body green, and then shooting in a snowstorm…
To getting our camera on the plane without offering to sacrifice my first-born son!
Since I am childless, I paid the $100 for a carry-on instead. But, there’s so much to worry about, except the one thing that’s always a cinch… the food competition we shoot every week… that’s Fast!
Like jamming a pint of stuffing in your mouth so you resemble a Human Turkey… Fun!
Like eating wings out of your girlfriend’s mouth, also known as the Buffalo Kiss… and Freakin’ Messy!
Like having your wife scoop Sugar Cream Pie into your mouth in a feeding frenzy!
So, this week we did to a bit in honor of the famous play from Super Bowl XVII called the “70 Chip,” that resulted in John “Diesel” Riggins taking it 43 yards for the game-winning touchdown. And in DC, we found the “Diesel Crew” and had them prepped to eat 70 chips on their way to glory and a giant stomachache!
The problem? It was windy… Really windy! So, despite the fact that they were in stacks of 10, the Pringles were blowing right off the table! It was a total Chip-Show! The good news is that these guys were so eager to do this, they were about to Chip themselves! So, we brought the table inside their Diesel Bus, and they mowed thru those chips leaving a re-snack-ulous wake of crumbs!
So in the end, it all worked out… and this tailgate, was anything but crumby!!!
