There’s a few things we love to do in Texas. One is to tailgate and the other is to watch Football. Those two go hand and hand so anytime we get a chance to party with a bunch of other football lovers, we take advantage of it! I got the chance to party at the Bill Bates Tailgate Party with Verizon this past weekend before the Dallas Cowboys whooped some New Orleans booty.
Verizon is a sponsor of the NFL and they throw tailgating parties that you don’t want to miss before each game. This party was at the Fish Bone Grill across the street from the Stadium. At first, I thought the party was just going to be inside the bar with a few games and drinks. Boy was I wrong!
Outside the tent, there were lots of fun games and interactions to keep you busy. Verizon had a couple that I loved. One was a inflatable set up so you can kick field goals. You had three chances to score and if you did, you would win prizes. It was hilarious watching people try to kick the football.
I caught a Cowboys fan attempting to kick a field goal. Unfortunately, he failed but it was all in good fun!
We were able to snag a seat near the DJ booth and dance floor of the tailgate. It was a great place to people watch. The DJ had Saint’s fans and Cowboys fans compete in hula hoop contest and dance offs. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed many laughs.
Before we left the tailgate party, we had a chance to take a picture and get a signature with Bill Bates! He was so nice and personable. Here is my sister, Digital Mom Blog, and I with him!
After interacting with all the awesome Verizon games, having a few drinks and stuffing our bellies, we were off to the game. I felt like I was at an away game, the amount of New Orlean’s fans seem to overbear the few Cowboys fans I saw walking to the game.
That was until I got into the stadium, then I knew we were in Cowboys Nation! We had amazing seats provided by Verizon. They were in the 200 section on the end field. We were seated directly in front of the party pass holders, which is standing room only. At first, it was extremely annoying. It was ALL Saint’s fans and they sat there yelling at us, telling us the Cowboys suck, that we need to sit down, etc. All the crap talk stopped shortly after the Dallas Cowboys took the lead only 7 minutes into the game.
There wasn’t too many more words out of the Saint’s fans after we started kicking some butt. While I was trying to take pictures of the field, one Saint’s fan stood up and starting scratching his head in disbelief. It was quite comical.
Cowboys played an amazing game and I’m so glad that we were able to attend! A huge thanks to Verizon Wireless for making it happen. Who wants to come tailgate with us at the next home game?
