Did You Know?America - Did you know? When Americans attend sporting events - and football games in particular - it's often not enough to simply show up and take their seats. They need to arrive hours in advance to properly prepare for the experience of seeing the game live and in person. Emblazoned in team colors, tailgaters will crowd the stadium's parking lot, grilling food, sipping cold adult beverages, playing lawn games and tossing around footballs. This is known as 'Tailgaiting'.
