I believe that football season on the Plains is an Auburn Family reunion.
Therefore, I believe in tailgating, hard tailgating.
I believe in preparation and planning, which starts on Monday and lasts through the week.
I believe in half pound cheeseburgers, beer brats, and all beef franks, without which I cannot quench the hunger of my fellow man.
I believe in the twilight stocking of the cooler, the late night breakdown, and an appetite that is not afraid.
I believe in portable generators, box fans, and satellite TV, without which it would not be possible to watch ESPN in quasi-comfort.
I believe in the lifetime memories created at the tailgate, and cherish the opportunity to make new ones.
I believe in Auburn University, and am grateful to it for my education and for the life friends I made there.
And because of what the gathering of the Auburn Family means to me, I believe in tailgating, Auburn tailgating, and love it.
