Stroud Strip Sack Lunch

Riding Out

A few weeks ago former NFL player, Marcus Stroud of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills elaborated on some of his past tailgating adventures and expertise with us in an interview about how he first became anointed into the ‘tailgating lifestyle’ that we all know and love. He has some very interesting stories about his time spent in various cities. He explains his viewpoints on college tailgating versus pro football tailgating parties to highlight with us and his fans. Certainly, we would cherish the opportunity to hear from Marcus again this Summer or Fall to see what other great recipes or surprises he may have in store for us!! Keep doing what you do #99!!!
