The Biggest Tailgate Fails Ever
Courtesy of foolishfans.com
Tailgating is a special time for friends, family and the fools in the van near you to gather and celebrate a sporting event...from outside the event's actual venue of course.
It's a strong tradition that has spawned numerous games, including stump and dizzy bat and some very impressive moments of drunken failure.
Let's take a look at some of the biggest tailgating fails ever.
No. 20: Kansas Fan Falls

Had he just watched another Bill Self team get upset in the NCAA tournament?
No. 19: Dizzy Bat in the Park
Dizzy bat is always a fun game, especially when it's played by newbies.
No. 18: Anorexia

Maybe there is such a thing as being too successful.
No. 17: Drunken Hammer

Call me cautious, but is it ever a good idea to combine drunkenness and hammers with a few sharp points for good measure?
No. 16: About to Drop

What are the odds those two drop the big guy in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...?
No. 15: Who Will Fall First

Are you ready to take bets? Looks like an even match...
No. 14: Cubs Baseball

Cubs games may as well be one giant tailgating party in the bleachers.
When your team is down 10-0 every game by the sixth inning, what else is there to do but down one more?
No. 13: Dizzy-Bat Race

Not sure I buy dizzy bat as a battle of athletic endurance, yet I've seen stranger combinations work.
No. 12: Guys vs. Girls

I bet she finishes hers faster. Guys, it's never a good idea to go head to head against the opposite sex; one way or another they always win.
No. 11: Boob-Shaped Beer Bong

Sorry guys, just because it's shaped like a boob, doesn't mean it is one. Drunken desperation calls for a spot on the list.
No. 10: High Five in a Dead Zone

Are those two the only people drinking outside in the entire area? Wow Miller Park, come on!
Maybe that's why they are high-fiving: It takes courage to be first.
No. 9: Stump Messages

If you have to carve messages into the stump, you have gone too far.
No. 8: Public Embarrassment
Tailgating usually involves just embarrassing yourself in front of a few friends, though Facebook may change that one day.
How about opening up that embarrassment to a whole stadium?
No. 7: Japanese Stump

The inclusion of Asahi is an interesting cultural curiosity, seeing as "stump" actually made its way to Japan.
But how are the nails almost as tall as the beer can? Isn't that seriously dangerous?
It definitely counts as a major fail if one of those ends up in someone's eye.
No. 6: Empty Seats
It makes no sense: Your Division I football team goes out and makes fools of themselves in a dizzy bat competition and no one bothers to watch?
No. 5: Stump on Late Night

Can you even count how many things are wrong with this picture?
Let's just stop at the fact that stump belongs at drunken tailgating parties, not on a late show.
No. 4: Falling Euphoria

That is a curiously ecstatic face to make before toppling to the ground.
No. 3: Jersey Shore

It doesn't matter if it's relevant. When you get a chance to include Jersey Shore, you have to do it.
Now that the show is wrapping, your dumbness will be sorely missed.
No. 2: Calling All Ages

Clearly, dizzy bat is not just a game for young, drunk college kids at the football game.
No. 1: Woman vs. Stripper Pole

This pole defeated this woman the way the Packers defeated the Bears last week.
