Cars were invented as mobile party stations for sporting events, with the added bonus of transportation home when athletes grew tired of piggyback rides. Spruce up your game-day party wagon with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of sports accessories from The Tailgating Spot. Shipping costs are not included in the value of this Groupon.
From its expansive online showroom, The Tailgating Spot equips Kansas and Missouri sports fans with licensed merchandise from the Royals, Chiefs, Tigers, Wildcats, and Jayhawks. A Kansas Jayhawks lanyard adorns necks in feathery pride while corralling keys, ID cards, or flight-risk ties ($6.99). Grillers can shield themselves from splattering barbeque sauce and flameballs behind a K-State Wildcats apron ($27.99) and accommodate fellow fans with a chilled beverage from a Kansas City Chiefs 12-pack cooler bag ($19.99). The site's house divided section vends a selection of two-sided area rugs ($44.99) and banners ($19.99–$25.99) for families split by university rivalry or disputes over the Taft–Hartley Act.
