That the term UPTIGHT comes from men swimming in ice cold water!
“If Trouble Was Money”
Born in Austin Texas on February 15, 1984 Gary Clark Jr has been declared “Best Young Gun” by Rolling
Stone Magazine. Blues, rock, soul, R&B, blues punk, hip hop and now lets use the word fusion to best
describe Clark’s style of music. It’s actually beyond music to the ears, he’s more of a lifestyle than anything else. When someone plays an instrument whether you like that particular style of music or not, you know excellence when you hear it! Despite sharing the stage with the best of the best like Clapton, BB, and of course the Stones, Clark
still has his own rhythm and sound. He began playing guitar at the age of twelve and moved through the
ranks of the Austin rock scene doing many cover songs as well as his originals. His music has been used
for blockbuster movies and he has performed many sold out festivals. If you haven’t taken the time, get off
your ass and get involved…Music can be a life changing experience!
Football season ticket holders take their tailgating extremely serious. RealTree came out with one genius
versatile idea called the Tailgate Inverter. It’s a mobile power strip with three 110/120v ac outlets and
dual hi-speed 2.1a USB power ports that hooks rite up to your battery. It inverts 450W with many functions
including a low voltage alarm, high voltage, high temperature, short circuit & overload protection! 5-Foot
12v accessory connection cable and battery cables with clamps are included in this kit. For roughly $50
you can be the TNT of the party! You’ll be a regular energy magnet with everyone asking you to charge
their phone and plug in their hair dryers…well maybe just their electric grill (ha). (Please Invert Responsibly).
Tailgate Tire Table
The only time you should ever get tired of tailgating is with the Tire Tailgater! Made out of steel this table is held up by using your tire and fits almost any vehicle. This must have is stable regardless of ground conditions with retractable legs for extra support. There are no tools required, just whip it out and hook it on (sounds like
a second date). Your steel friend weighs under 12 lbs and has beautiful black powder coted finish to avoid any rusting. The only real hook here is to remember to take it of your tire before driving away, you might spill someone’s beer!
The Tailgater Hammock
This is not your ordinary banana hammock this dual sucker sets up on a trailer hitch for optimal comfort and convenience when tailgating. Two denier polyester hammock chairs have hanging footrests, allowing tailgaters to relax in a reclined position while keeping feet and legs elevated. The hammock chairs hang from a three-piece
stand that assembles and attaches to any 2” trailer hitch. The hammock stand is made of steel then powder coated with nickel plated hardware and the chairs have a durable PVC backing, braided rope suspension, and hardwood dowels for years of reliable use. (Please Hang Your Hammock Responsibly).
Cheering For Money
Glamorous, sexy, and out there supporting their hometown teams are the NFL Cheerleaders. But behind all the glitter is the on going controversy about getting the girls squared up with $Mr.Green$. Apparently the average wage for a cheerleader is shit money. We always look at these girls and think their making millions when it’s actually the total opposite. After shaking out some pom poms, my research shows the average salary is $75 to $150 per game
and $50 per hour for special events. WTF!! An NFL cheerleader’s schedule varies, but most can expect to work eight hours per week for rehearsals (plus additional practice time for rookies) and a full eight-hour day at the stadium for home games on Sundays (Or sometimes Monday nights, or even on holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas).
Also special appearances at community outreach, charity, and corporate events are required as well. Not what I ever imagined!
