It’s the final week of summer, and that means my favorite month of September is upon us filled with sunny days, drier air, lower sun angles and football games. I’ve written before about my passion for pigskin and what makes it even more enjoyable is to watch the games with family and friends.

Part of our college football game ritual involves tailgating in the Blue Lot at WVU with a whole host of friends from childhood, high school, college days and well beyond. You never know who will show up or stop by on any given Saturday, and it’s a wonderful chance to catch up and visit with loved ones.
