In the 5.75 years of Busted Coverage, I’d never thought about sponsoring an entire tailgating operation. And then I made my first-ever trip to Baton Rouge for the Alabama game. Immediately, preliminary discussions begun with the crew at Cooney’s Corner (@Cooneys_Corner), a bunch of crazy LSU students & fans, regarding the possibility of BC getting into the tailgating sponsorship world.
Our collaboration with the guys at Cooney’s Corner begins Saturday in Dallas before the TCU game. That purple drank sign will hang at the tailgate.
According to our researchers, we believe that Busted is the first sports blog to sponsor a collegiate tailgate for home and away games for an entire season. Sure, ESPN has GameDay, but do they sponsor a bunch of crazy Cajuns drinking purple drank? Nope.
And this isn’t just some ragtag group with a grill and a keg. Ask around the LSU tailgating circles.
Saturday’s tailgate location is LOT 4 near Cowboys Way and Legends Way. Find the sign, take photos with the Purple Drank Tiger sign and send them to us @bustedcoverage.
