Re: Tailgater Of The Year Competition
I was at Speedy's tailgate ("That's Bull!") when the HEB people came by to judge their tailgate (they were one of three finalists that week). Speedy and Co. put on a great dog and pony show, really done first class, chanted and had a great time, but they didn't win because of some [alleged] corporate BS.
After seeing that display, I have absolutely no desire to win this award or advertise HEB at our tailgate. It is not about the 'best tailgate', but more about BEST ADVERTISEMENT FOR HEB. The "award" is very misleading, because their selection committee is quite biased towards corporate advertisers.
