Virginia Tech Football Tailgating – A New Family Tradition

Virginia Tech

College football is not very important in the north, especially in Minnesota. For me, it’s because there has never been a quality Division I football team in the area. For others, it may be that they prefer to watch professional football. Whatever the reason, I never really had a team to cheer for growing up, and as a result I never really cared about college football.

Then I met Amanda and she unlocked a new world for me: College Football in the South. You see, she grew up one town over from Blacksburg, VA – home of Virginia Polytechnical Institute. Better known as Virginia Tech. She had me at Hokie.

The first time I went to a game was in 2009, when the Hokies beat Nebraska at the last minute, and I rushed the field with my buddy Jeff Taylor.  [Read more…]

**TKOT note** We would like to thank “Sauer” for putting in the time and effort to preview the NFL Playoffs. The three of us are still a little hungover from New Years so having the NFL playoff piece written from a “stranger” was a great save for TKOT. Thanks man!

1) Bursting Burrito = New England Patriots 

Anyone who frequents Chipotle as much as I do should be well aware of a phenomenon that comes along once in every 100 or so burritos. I am talking about the infamous double-wrapper! For those of you who have not been exposed to this phenomenon, a double-wrapper is when you order a burrito that gets so stuffed with ingredients that there is no possible way that it can all fit into a single tortilla. The burrito is so stacked with greatness that when the Chipotle employee tries to make the burrito take form, the tortilla splits down the middle, spilling the contents all over the place. In order to deliver your burrito as promised, they are forced to wrap it with a second tortilla!

2008 NFC Playoffs Preview – Chipotle Style

Hey all – I wrote a guest post on a blog that is written by three of my college friends called TK on Toast. They are sports nuts and their site is pretty awesome. It is written from the point of view of a sports fan (with a slight Minnesota bias), and I think they are doing a great job.

Anyway, they have a feature on their blog where they let their friends do guest posts and sound off on whatever topic they like to talk about.  I decided to do an NFL playoffs preview comparing playoff teams to ingredients in a Chipotle burrito. It turned out to be a pretty solid post, and I encourage you to read it if you have any interest in the NFL or Chipotle.

Today’s post was about the NFC playoffs. Tomorrow I cover the AFC. Enjoy!
