UCF Tailgaters

It should be clear to the reader that this American baseballing scene takes place both on the campus of the University of Central Florida and on a chilly day.  The official BBB photographer makes the setting apparent within the photo’s composition through the skillful inclusion of not one, but two UCF logos.  The fact that this past Saturday was chilly is evidenced by the jacket-and-cargo-shorts ensembles on display.  What is also clear is the tailgating assembly is perched on the wrong side of the Jay Bergman Field scoreboard.

The tailgating UCF man cares not for what is being tallied on the scoreboard, for he already knows the score.  The score is he has a beer in his hand and you have a Dasani.  The score is he drives the vehicular truck God intended a man to drive and you drive a Chrysler Sebring, or some such nonsense.  The score is he has a smoking hot girlfriend, and sometimes Katelyn, in the back of that F150, lets him do to her what God intended a man do to a woman.   And that’s all that really matters, iddn’t?

The UCF tailgating gentleman practices more than just lust however, for he is after all, an Associate practitioner of the Arts, and in just three to four years will become a Bachelor of said Arts.  As a natural consequence of these facts, he recognizes the eight American greenbacks currently residing in his billfold might better be spent on more Natty Light, and not on admission tickets to see what can clearly be seen for free, from the grassy parking lot, a scant 350 feet away.
