About This Quiz
Tailgate parties are about as old as football in America. There's evidence dating back to games that took place around the year 1904 of large groups gathering together to celebrate the game and have something to eat, just making a whole big event out of the day in a way that brings football, fans and food together like nothing else. One legend says the practice, and the name itself, go back to the Green Bay Packers when they first started playing in 1919 and fans would show up to watch the game out of the backs of their own trucks with plenty of food and drinks to keep them satisfied for the duration.
However the tradition started, it really has become a solid tradition that has even escaped football and occurs before other sporting events as well. The key to a tailgate party is that it has to be at the sporting event, and it has to be outdoors in a field or a parking lot where everyone has gathered with their vehicles to cook and eat and celebrate their favorite team. If you tell us what snacks make a tailgate party shine for you, we can even tell you what team you're likely rooting for. Take a bite out of this quiz and see for yourself!
