The Top Ten Tailgating Personalities

Tailgating is more than just a pre-game ritual; it's a social event that brings people together to bond over food, drinks, and their love for sports. In this article, we're diving into the hilarious and entertaining world of tailgating to bring you the top ten types of people you'll encounter at these epic gatherings. So, buckle up and get ready for a lighthearted and amusing journey through the wild and wonderful world of tailgate personalities.


  1. The Master Griller: This person is the king or queen of the barbecue, always found manning the grill like a boss. They'll flip burgers and turn hot dogs with style, all while making sure everyone is well-fed and happy. They may not be culinary geniuses, but they’re willing to stand next to the grill, and all they need is a compliment here and there to stay happy.


  1. The DJ: Armed with a playlist that's a mix of classic rock, hip-hop, and country, the DJ keeps the party going by pumping up the jams. They've got speakers bigger than their car, and they're not afraid to use them. Sometimes, they might even show up with a legitimate outdoor concert sound set-up, regardless of their expertise (the heart is in the right place - that is what matters).


  1. The Drink Specialist: Whether they're mixing up killer cocktails or keeping the beer flowing, the Drink Specialist has got you covered. Their cooler is a treasure trove of frosty beverages, ready to quench your thirst at a moment's notice. Bit of advice: keep it simple. They want to make your drink, but they might not know what it is or how to make it.


  1. The Sports Fanatic: Decked out in their team's colors, the Sports Fanatic is more than just a fan; they're a walking encyclopedia of stats and trivia. They've got opinions on every player, coach, and referee, and they're not shy about sharing them. Side note: normally these guys have one-syllable names. Our guy is Nick. Is this true at your tailgate?


  1. The Cornhole Champ: With a toss so accurate it defies logic, the Cornhole Champ dominates the tailgate gaming scene. They'll happily take on challengers and defend their title as the master of this beloved lawn game. This person typically falls in one of two camps: drinking makes them better … or worse. I get worse, but happier, so there’s that.


  1. The Dance Machine: Channeling their inner Taylor Swift, the Dance Machine brings the moves to every tailgate. They'll turn the parking lot into a dance floor and have everyone grooving along, regardless of their level of dance expertise. WIthout a doubt, good or bad, this person will attract a crowd.


  1. The Social Butterfly: The life of the party, the Social Butterfly flits from group to group, making friends and keeping the energy high. They'll have a hilarious story or joke for every occasion, making sure there's never a dull moment. Overly friendly? Most likely. Keep an escape route planned.


  1. The Wandering Mascot: This person takes team spirit to the next level by dressing up as their team's mascot or donning outrageous outfits. You can't help but smile when you see them strutting their stuff and getting everyone pumped for the game. Some of the outfits may be scandalous so know that you have been warned.


  1. The Tailgate Crasher: Not even sure which team they're rooting for, the Tailgate Crasher is just there for the party. They'll show up with a smile and an appetite, always ready to join in on the fun – and maybe score some free food and drinks along the way. At least at Tailgreeter, they can get a walk-up ticket and still contribute to the party.


  1. The All-Around MVP: The ultimate tailgater, the All-Around MVP is a combination of all the best tailgate personalities. They can grill, mix drinks, talk sports, and dance with the best of them, making them an essential addition to any tailgate party. Let’s face it: this is most likely you, right?
