Today, I’d like to talk about an American tradition that you might find interesting. It’s known as “tailgating” Often, when Americans attend sporting events, especially football, They arrive hours in advance to properly prepare for the experience of seeing the game live and in person. They often will dress in their team colors, and will set up around the stadium's parking lot, grilling food, sipping cold adult beverages, playing games and playing catch with footballs.
Many tailgaters will even bring stereos, TVs and satellite dishes as well. There isn’t really a rule for how early tailgaters can arrive. Some arrive first thing in the morning or even the night before to reserve their space!
In the U.S. this is a very typical thing to see. What do you think about “tailgating”? Is there anything similar to this in Japan? If you have a chance, come see me to talk about some other traditions.
