It’s been a whirl wind of cat activities this month for TigerTailgate!
It started early in September in South Florida prepping the TigerTailgate RV for the eventual journey north to Princeton. Everything orange or tiger-striped was loaded, attached or packed for the season. Once done, attention could be turned to The Big Cat in the NFL.
Mike Catapano ‘13 not only got drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs, he made the 53-man roster team, and saw meaningful time in the first game of the NFL season against Jacksonville. This set the stage for a Princeton tailgate last Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium for the Chief’s home opener vs. the Dallas Cowboys.
The tailgate task became how well could Tiger orange mix with Chiefs red. Hosted by Julie and Pat Smith P16 P16 in the RV previously owned by Holly and Dave Megay P13, we joined up with Barbara and Mike Catapano P13 to cheer on #77 in a sold out stadium.
Next up … time for the Princeton cats season. The packed TigerTailgate RV is heading North on it’s 1200 mile road trip, representing the colors all the way. This weekend’s season opening game against Lehigh has a bit of revenge tied to it. A confident Tiger squad is looking to climb that last step and clip the wings of the Mountain Hawks.
But there’s tailgating to be done first. We look forward to seeing everyone early on Saturday afternoon in Lot 21! Each week check out our Game Day page to learn when, where, and what to bring to the pre-game TigerTailgate. This year’s theme … BYOM: Bring Your Own Mixers!
TigerTailgate’s prediction … cowbells ringing and wings on the grill.
~ GO TIGERS!
