Fall is here and with it comes the inevitable roar of college football. That also means it’s time to accept our god given right to pregame (literally) by pulling into the parking lots across the nation, busting out our gear, and cranking up the tunes.

So in honor of the manly pregame festivities, Gear Patrol’s own Bradley Hasemeyer and his trusty production sidekick Mike Iwamasa are hitting the road in search of the ultimate tailgating experience. That means the duo will be attending five games in search the most impressive, bad-ass shindig around along with city traditions and must-visit hotspots. They’ll be awarding worthy fans with FLO TV’s galore plus some free service. That’s an important fact considering FLO TV will be featuring 200 live games this season from every major conference, so if you can’t tailgate like a rock star every game, at least you’ll never have to miss a game.

Five Stop Tailgate Tour

We’ll be announcing the full five-stop tour schedule soon, but our first stop is this Saturday where Bradley and Mike will be heading to Columbus, OH deep in Buckeye Territory to watch Miami take on Ohio State. You’ll be able to watch and follow their (mis)adventures over the next two months on FLO TV’s Ultimate Tailgate Tour Blog (launches Friday), here on Gear Patrol, and tons of updates/behind the scenes action on our twitter feed. Hint: follow us and you won’t miss a thing. Already know you’re going to have the best tailgate or have some pregame hotposts/traditions we should visit? Email them at tailgate@gearpatrol.com and you never know, they might just swing by and don you with a FLO TV (just have a dog & beers ready).
