Tailgate32: Meet the Two Guys Who Are Living out Your Dream This Season
Kevin W. RyanContributor IIIOctober 9, 2012

Meet John and Mike, "brothers who are diehard football fans on a mission to do the unthinkable."

Throughout the 17 amazing weeks this NFL season, the two brothers will hop in an RV and tailgate at one home game for all 32 NFL stadiums.

That's right - the absolute coolest road trip ever conceived by man.  

Given the vast differences throughout this great country, especially when rowdy football fans are included, it's safe to say that John and Mike are in for a major culture shock. 

What's most amazing to me is how the Tailgate32 crew includes a positive first hand take on every city they visit, complete with profiles and opinions from the friendly people they meet at the tailgates. 

For example, did you know that diehard Jacksonville Jaguars fans existed? Perhaps, in the pre-teen variety? Well, thanks to Tailgate32, now you know. 

Ever wonder what the people in Carolina are like? Well, if you get lucky enough, you might meet a family willing to let you actually stay in their house

Currently, the group has tailgated 12 different games with the most recent being the Baltimore-Kansas City kickfest this past Sunday. 

Up next, the crew heads to Nashville, Tennessee to catch the Steelers-Titans game on Thursday Night Football.
