5 game day tips for the ultimate tailgate

(StatePoint) Whether you’re tailgating at the stadium or a viewing party at home, a true football fan is always prepared for game day fun.

Start with these five game day tips that will take you well into playoff season, even if your team doesn’t:

1. Claim your territory: The early bird gets the worm, so be sure to research potential tailgating spots early, then set up camp as soon as possible on game day. Don’t forget to consider things like shade and flat ground space. Whatever the weather, bring a pop-up tent or canopy for some cover.

2. Fire up the grill: One thing rival fans agree on is the importance of a good burger. The grill is the center of the tailgate, so make sure you’re equipped with one that’s easy to take on the road and set up quickly. Rule the parking lot with the Coleman RoadTrip X-cursion Propane Grill, which features collapsible steel scissor legs and a low-profile design that offers portable, porcelain-coated cast iron grilling.

To kick off the 2017-2018 school year, the University of West Georgia’s Theatre Company will present Godspell Sept. 27-Oct. 1. A classic, family musical, Godspell was written by John-Michael Tebelak and Stephen Schwartz and was produced on Broadway in 1971.

The musical creatively showcases Biblical parables and the teachings of Jesus with music from all genres that will make you want to get out of your seat and rock out with the cast.

It expresses the upbeat message of Jesus’ teachings of love, faith and tolerance through classic songs such as “Day by Day,” “Learn Your Lessons Well” and “Light of the World.” The musical also explores the path of Judas’ inner struggle of whether or not to betray Jesus.
