Wyoming tailgate party kickoff

8 Sep

As all devoted football fans know, tailgating is a necessary
part of college football game day. The pregame celebration adds to the kick off
excitement, whether at home or the stadium. The Wyoming Cowboys have a tailgating
party prior to games but even ticketless fans can engage in their own football
party.

Wyoming tailgate party

Hours before the start of a Cowboy’s football game, Poke
fans arrive at Pepsi’s Tailgate Park for the traditional pregame tailgating
event. The Park is located south of War Memorial Stadium on the grass practice
fields. The next Cowboy home game is this Saturday 09/10/11 at 4:00 pm.

Attractions

Cowboy enthusiasts can find food and drink vendors and
listen to a live band. This year the party includes face painting, temporary tattoos,
and inflatable activities for kids such as a slide and bouncer. UW team gear
vendors will be available for purchasing Cowboy items. There will also be
trivia contests with prizes.

Home football party recipe

Cowboy fans stuck at home can create their own pregame celebration
with great food and friends. Here is a recipe to get the football spirit going.
The Ultimate Burger:

Elements:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Hamburger buns (large style)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 strips of bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • ½ cup onion diced

Preheat grill to medium high heat. Salt and pepper the
ground beef to taste and then roll into eight balls and press into thin
patties. Mix the bacon, cheese, and onion and then place the mixture in the
middle of four patties. Take the other patties and place on top and press the
sides to seal. Cook on medium high heat, turning occasionally till desired
doneness. Other stuffing can be used such as green chilies, jalapenos, with Mexican
cheese mix or mushrooms with onion and Swiss cheese.  This recipe is open for flavor
experiments. Ground turkey can be substituted and stuffed with veggies for a healthier
alternative.
