We didn't advertise, but we were considered. They told us we had to come up with something that had HEB on it and that it would also help if we came up with something that had KILT.
Fine, whatever, we'll play along, have a good time with it. So having nothing HEB or KILT, 'cause that's not what we're there for, and although I do shop at HEB sometimes, I didn't for this game, so we put down our beers long enough to throw this together for them:
Made out of an awesome smoked brisket and link sausage. Turned out to be a waste of some perfectly good food.
Taking nothing away from the Feedyard crew, they do have a nice setup, and they were the last entry for Tailgater of the Year (this was the Denver game) and they go on the next game to take the title, but it's not a best tailgater of the game contest (which I don't see how you could choose just one anyway), it's a who can suck up the biggest to the sponsors of the contest contest, i.e. HEB banners and signs, etc. And that's why we will never win it and don't care to.
Of course, the way we look at it is that it took the champs to beat us.
No big deal. We had an awesome time, had a big crowd, the band came by and played a few tunes, then the Texans kicked the crap out of the Broncos. It was all good.
