Twas The Night Before College Football

Twas the night before college football season, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even the pup.
The game day attire were hung by the mirror with care,
In hopes that college game day soon would be there.

The tailgates were planned the setup was ready,
The season is upon us, an offseason that must close.
12-0 and a bowl game win,
Is the hope all carry at the start of the season.

A beautiful day it was predicted to be.
Now it was football season a crisp in the air,
For throwing a ball and grilling out.

SEC College game day is finally here.
The Southern Belles in Lilly and pearls
The Southern Gentlemen in seersucker and bow ties.

A toast is given to a great season and fun,
The clink of the glasses signaling that the first tailgate of the season,
Has officially begun. 

Happy Football Season To All, And To All A Great Season

As a kick off to the start of the football season here are some fabulous tailgate recipes, curtsey of Food Network.
