Now now don't get to hard on us midwesterners, here in WI it has been 2AM boozing ever since I can remember. You want to see backwards drinking take a look down south to the dry counties and no booze sundays. What would a football game be without a little alcohol haze and for a disclaimer not all southerners are not backwards just the booze policy.
I was talking to my cousin's husband, and he's from Alabama. He went to Auburn, and was always a fan of Auburn football. He told me that the tailgating for the Auburn-Alabama game starts on tuesday for a saturday game. And he said they start REAL early! The funny thing is, he said they all would try to sober up by sunday morning, so they could go to church!
