Tuesday Question: One of Preparation

What is your gameday tradition not involving alcohol or the grove?

I usually just ask the question, but I think this one calls for a small explanation as to why there are the qualifying statements.

As for the alcohol exclusion, I feel like too often in recounting tailgating experiences, people use alcohol consumption (how much bourbon they drink, shots they do, etc) as a crutch.

The reason I've precluded the grove (should it be capitalized, given its holiness?) is that we will give everyone another opportunity to discuss grove traditions closer to football season.

I'm also not looking to hear what your favorite Ole Miss tradition is. If you answer with "the walk of champions," you've doubly missed the point. Now go ahead. Someone infantile. Go ahead and answer with, "the walk of champions."
