The New American Pastime.

Tailgating - it's the new American pastime. The pre- and post-game tailgate party continues to grow in popularity with American sports fans. Experts expect a 12% increase in tailgating fans this football season and as many as 50 million Americans participating in tailgating!

So what's "high-tech tailgating"?
The tailgate party is now increasingly high-tech to accommodate the demands of sports fans who don't want to miss any action on game day. Taking advantage of technology like the TracVision family of mobile satellite TV systems from KVH Industries and DIRECTV's satellite TV programming allows sports fans to catch televised NFL and college football games along with other sporting events LIVE on the video screens installed in their cars and RVs.

"It's the last great American neighborhood - the tailgating neighborhood. Where no one locks their doors, everyone is happy to see you and all are together sharing fun, food and football!"

- Joe Cahn, the Commissioner of Tailgating
