Florida Gators Swamp Tailgater Top 20

They didn’t have a stellar season, but the Gators are thick-skinned.


And those in the know are putting Florida at the top for 2014 in the SEC East standings. But then tailgating at Florida is about the party anyway. Thousands of blue-and-orange tents line University Avenue, “Call Me Al” blasts from everywhere, and the smoky aroma of all kinds of grilling meats drift by. Staying cool can be challenge, but swig down a cold Swamp Juice, don’t move much, and join in the Gator Nation. It’s like hanging out at a raucous, family barbecue with 100,000 family members. After the game, take a seat at the end of the bar of Lillian’s Music Store, and take your turn keeping the portrait of the naked, Rubenesque lady gently swinging.
