Epilogue: USC vs Utah Football Tailgate 2011

Last weekend’s Utah vs USC tailgate embodied the Utah theme, including several Jello items (a cranberry juice and jello combo overflowing with multiple types of berries,  red and yellow jello shots, and a US flag (to honor 9/11) jello dish), as well as a take on Mormon funeral potaotes (potatoes with lots of cheese and crunch on top).  Along with the bbq tri-tip, chicken, green salad, 3 bean salad, assorted fruits and cheese, etc., the pre-game meal was a hit.  Post-game we enjoyed corn chowder (Native American reference to the Utes), spinach salad, popcorn, french bread, and several desserts (oatmeal bars were spectacular)!

So far this season, not sure which is better…the food or the football! As always, the jet flyover at pre-game was a treat! Kudos to the Utah Marching Band for making the trip and providing more sights and sounds. The USC TMB performed a very well-received halftime show of 2010 and 2011 songs, including a quick-step dance routine (shuffle)  to Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO — so much fun and lots of applause — see video on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuakkzKoimQ&feature=channel_video_title

This week, we play Syracuse!
