NFL Star Quarterback Promotes Tailgate Safety

January 6th, 2009 by flanews

A former NFL Star Quarterback is asking Florida fans to mind their manners at upcoming tailgate parties. Super Bowl Champ Joe Thiesmann was at the state capitol Tuesday to promote tailgating etiquette and safety. The football star is asking fans who plan to tailgate at the college national championship game and the super bowl to designate a driver, watch their language around kids, and provide plenty of food for people who plan to drink.

Tailgating can be a lot of fun but for some people it can be very uncomfortable. I want to be able to take my family to a game. I want to be able to have my son and daughter not have to worry about a person drunk next to me, or out of control next to me. I want to make it a pleasurable experience,” said Thiesmann.

Thiesmann is a spokesperson for Turf, an alcohol industry founded group devoted to safe and responsible tailgating at college and professional football games.
