Tailgate for Troops

Tailgate for Troops


2018 Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas..to all my brothers and sisters.Nice read ;
A civilian asked his veteran friend "Why did you call that stranger a brother, when you don't even know who he is?" Fair question...Here was his reply. "See that uniform he is wearing? He serves in the United States military. That, in itself, makes us brothers. Don't care where he is from, what color he is, who he voted for, or even who he prays too. He is still my brother, because he chose to put himself second, and his country first. For all I know, he has walked where I have walked, left sweat where I left sweat, and left drops of blood, where I did too..And that too, makes us brothers. From the time he raised his right hand, and signed on the dotted line, until time no longer exists, he will forever be my brother. Same with the women that served. They will forever be my sisters. They have my back, and I have theirs." The civilian friend stated, "wow, I never looked at it or even thought about it like that. That's awesome."
"Does every Vet feel like you do?"
"Yes they do...We are family, first and foremost. Forever Family..."
Thank you all for being my family, and being there for your brothers and sisters when they needed you.

2018 M.O.A.T. was awesome. We appreciate all who attended and showed some love for an awesome Tailgate. Your support for the Nine Line Foundation was awesome.

Need to thank our sponsors Nine Line Apperal. Tyler and his team rocked it again. Johnsonville Sausage and the Big Taste Grill with the FDNY 343 Ride Team doing the cooking and Baby Blues BBQ. Barstool Sports Live Pre-Game broadcast, Drinkin Bros podcast, Service Brewery, Tatered Flag Brewery and Stateside Vodka. Sig Sauer, Group 504 and their 2 Off Road Jeeps. Barbs Harley Davidson, Gillett Razor and BeaverFir USA. Jack Robinson's Waste Disposal was on their game with the Porta John's and dumpster.

Finally a Big Shout Out to the band The Hollow Party killing it on stage. These guys started with us 5 years ago as juniors in High School. Now juniors in College, they donated their time to fly to our event. Great job guys.

No, this is not 4 people, but 2 (Two) couples. Not sure if you noticed the 2 (Two) is a correlation to when the M.O.A.T. happens.

Barstool Sports will be there and broadcasting from our event. That is too cool.

[12/06/18]   Fellow Tailgaters. We are 3 days away and here is info on our layout and where the proceeds will go.

The address for the lot is 3899 S. Darien St, Philadelphia, PA. Proceeds from our event will go through the Nineline Foundation towards the construction of a Veterans Village in
Savannah, Georgia. This community of 24 homes will provide temporary housing to
homeless veterans in the area. The community will include a community center and a
self-sustaining hydroponics / aquaponics centers, which, in partnership with Georgia
Southern Universityโ€™s FORAM Sustainable Aquaponics Research Center, will train
these veterans how to be self-sustaining through farming while also receiving
educational certification.

Based on the most recent Google, FBI. CIA and Black Ops poll, we will have the best Tailgate Party Philadelphia has ever seen. We hope you will be apart of it.


In 3


This many days to go. ๐Ÿ˜
