At least half of the tailgate tents people buy are 12x12 vs 10x10. What idiot democrat pencil pushing paper clip counting turd arbitrarily picked 10x10? I can see some fat assed “Karen” with an LSU badge walking around measuring tents and getting her SJW panties all lathered up if a tent is a couple feet too large. Smdh.

What does the size of the tent have to do with covid if there is also a limitation of how many people should be under it. If anything, you would think a bigger tent would allow for more "social distancing"

If we are lucky, by July 4th, Potato Brain Joe will let us BBQ with our families! LSU lost me at George Floyd.

I think we're beyond flooding the health systems at this point. If those at risk don't know how to protect themselves at this point, they have bigger problems.

"The footprint of my motorhome"? Wtf. This shite is more ridiculous as I re-read it. Scott Woodward is turning out to be a little count.

A&M, Auburn, Bama, Florida, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Tennessee will have 100% stadium and tailgating capacity for football season, while LSU won't even come close to that. At all. We keep telling yall but there's a reason why Louisiana is the most laughable state in the country. It's obvious.

I wouldn’t say the entire country. California and New York are. But in the South, definitely.
