Forget football. Tailgating is a sport unto itself. The camaraderie, the show of sportsmanship, the booze -- for any red-blooded American, they're all rites of passage, eagerly awaited each and every August.

Say what you will about the Miami Dolphins, but Fins fans are no slouches when it comes to this hallowed parking lot pastime. But does Miami match up against Green Bay? New York City? Detroit?

Tailgate32 is on its way to the MIA to find out.

Spearheaded by brothers John and Mike Trupiano, Tailgate32 is a quest to experience American tailgating at its finest, in each and every NFL franchise city, all in one season. The guys are bringing the cameras, their giant RV, and their love of the game to Sun Life Stadium on Sunday, September 23, to watch what happens when the Dolphins meet their bitter rivals, the Jets.

In each city, the Tailgate32 guys experience the local culture, check out the food and nightlife, and hit up an NFL tailgate and game. Then, they chronicle their experience in a five or six minute, professionally produced video, released online.



The concept for their project was born between the Trupiano brothers. Both avid football fans, they tossed around the idea of hitting up every NFL stadium as a sibling road trip, and the concept eventually morphed into its current incarnation: a tailgate documentary series of sorts. Their journey, all aboard a 42-foot RV, will cover 25,000 miles when complete.

"We decided we wanted to do something to document our experiences on the road and what it's like to be a fan in the different cities with their different traditions. We love tailgating, but we wanted to get at the root of why that is -- why do people come together? There was something richer there that we wanted to explore," says John.
