Ultimate Tailgate: 4 Steps to Success

With football season upon us, not only is it time to hit the stands for some exciting games—it’s also time to hit the parking lots for one of the best parts of the experience: tailgating! Pinic-basket.com has compiled a list of essential steps toward becoming a professional tailgater this season, and we’ve highlighted some of our favorite steps below:

  1. Provide Assorted Spirits

“There’s nothing quite like a cold brew to warm up your insides and make you feel all warm ‘n fuzzy on an icy cold day; or an frosty beer to really make you appreciate a nice warm spring day” says pinic-basket.com.

  1. Up Your Food Game

A successful tailgate requires awesome food. Grill up some burgers and hot dogs, along with vegetarian options. Have a wide range of tailgating foods available so everyone has a variety they enjoy.

  1. Dress Like A Pro Tailgater

Don’t forget to look the part while playing corn hole! Wear your team colors or your favorite player’s jersey. No matter what, make sure you are enjoying yourself and you are dressed for the weather, warm or cold.

  1. Have a Portable TV and Radio

A portable TV allows you to enjoy both the pre-game and the game. Want to have some music but don’t have a cordless radio? You can use your car radio while having your open trunk double as additional seating or a food/drink station.

Enjoy watching your favorite team and enjoy the ultimate tailgate in a new GMC Sierra from Crawford Buick GMC.

GMC Vehicles to Appear On-Field in Madden NFL 25

Madden GMCGMC is proud to be the official vehicle of the National Football League; their partnership has resulted in, among other things, the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year Award, which recognizes top performances by players such as Tony Romo, Adrian Peterson, and 2012 award-winner Torrey Smith.

Now GMC’s involvement in all things NFL is taking the next natural step into the digital realm and onto the field for the twenty-fifth annual installment of the number one leading cause of fake sick days in the nation: EA Sports’ Madden franchise.

Madden NFL 25, which will hit stores August 27 of this year, will have GMC as its official vehicle and will utilize the digital likenesses of the all-new 2014 GMC Sierra and current-year model Yukon, Acadia, and Terrain.  It’s fitting then, given that last year’s installment featured Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson on its cover and this year’s current-gen versions will feature legendary Lions RB Barry Sanders, that the Detroit-made 2014 Sierra Denali will be awarded to the in-game Super Bowl MVP.

Additionally, the GMC/EA Sports/NFL triumvirate is offering Madden fans the opportunity to win tickets to EA’s Tiburon studio in Orlando, Fla., where they’ll spend the day with programmers and feasting their eyes on the game before it becomes available to the public.  Details on the contest, which runs through August 1, can be found at www.GMCMadden.com/NFL.

Here at Crawford Buick GMC, we’ve got great deals on new and current GMC Sierra, Yukon, Acadia, and Terrain, the latter three of which offer available with rear seat entertainment system that will enable you to play Madden NFL 25 on the go.

If you’re one of the many Americans who will be inexplicably truck-sticked a bad 24-hour bug on August 27, we won’t tell.  Just rest assured you take some of that time off to come down and see us at Crawford Buick GMC; we’ll be hard at work!
