I grew up watching Aggie Football with my grandpa. I’ll never forget sitting with him, watching the Bonfire burn before the annual game against UT. It was such a fun tradition that we shared, and something that I want to continue with my son.
Most weekends in the fall, you can find us in College Station tailgating before Aggie home games. It’s a tradition that we started last year, and one that Andrew loves.
When we tell him we’re going to the Aggie game, he gets so excited! He has his own “Aggie clothes” that he likes to wear, and he goes straight for the maroon on game day.
And when it’s game day, there’s no better place to be than an Aggie tailgate. It’s all about camaraderie, friendship, and hospitality. No one is a stranger, and everyone is welcome. The key to a great tailgate is little details, like this Hand-Stamped Texas A&M Silverware.
It’s really easy to make, and you could customize it for your own team. I used these disposable wooden forks and stamped them with some common Aggie phrases. They’ve been a huge hit at our tailgates!
I also really like these Write-On Labels on the Ozarka 8 oz. Minis to Go. They’d be perfect for a tailgate!
For us, though, tailgating is about more than just great food and spending time with friends. It’s about sharing the traditions and values that are at the core of being an Aggie with our son. Aggieland is such a special place, and I love being able to share it with him.
