Congratulations Ravens fans. Instead of just watching for the commercials, seeing which silly prop bets you won, or begging for a field goal before the quarter ends so you can win the grid pool at your local bar (for entertainment purposes only), you actually get to watch your team play on Super Bowl Sunday. A lot of fans never get this opportunity. So, live it up while you’ve got the chance.
Since we’re not going to be tailgating any time soon, I’m turning my attention to covering the PGA Tour here on IHJJR. We’re 6 weeks into the 2012 PGA season and so far its setting up to be a good one.

Its playoff time and that means two things, extra fan intensity and extra low temperatures at the stadium. You’re gonna need something with a little extra kick to warm you up at the tailgate.

As it starts to get a little chilly outside, you’re gonna need something to warm you up on tailgate Sundays. Everyone does chili, but no one thinks of classic soups for tailgating. This is why I always bring my Smokin’ French Onion to the parking lot.
What You’ll Need
This is a bad week for a tailgaiting recipe since everyone is going to be deep-frying a turkey or pigging out all day before heading to the game, so I'm gonna turn my attention to something that urks me and every other football fan. The entire ranking system in college football, not just the BCS, is entirely ridiculous. How else can you explain a mediocre Va Tech team sitting at #5 in the BCS this week?
