I like most men from the South, really like College football. Ok, I love college football. Growing up in the South, it is tradition to attend tailgates at college towns like Tuscaloosa, Athens, Auburn, and my personal favorite, Oxford, Mississippi.
When talking about college football and tailgating in the South Eastern Conference, one would be remiss not to discuss the alarmingly rate of alcohol related accident that occur either on the way, or more likely on the way home from a college football game.
Now I like a drink before and during a college football game, just like everyone else, but far too many times have I witnessed fans driving home from a big win, after having way too much to drink. I would like to challenge as many people as possible to help solve this problem. There are a number of ways to help solve this problem:
Call a cab. If you live near the campus, call a cab, and have a friend bring you to your car in the morning.
Ask a friend to bring you home. If you know you have had too much to drink, ask your friend to give you a lift home.
If you are going to a game that is several hours away, don’t plan on driving home after the game, find a cheap hotel near the town, so that you can take a cab to the hotel.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable College Football season.
