    Okay, the Coupon Stars have properly aligned again so I can get pretty much any food I want for FREE for the next few weeks. I already have a bottle of Grey Goose Vodka which I traded for in my South Florida Barter King guise and will supplement that with iced coffee in order to stay awake until late at night watching the returns.So what snack food would go good with these drinks? I don't want anything too heavy. Just light and fun to eat. Sushi sounds like a good idea but what else? I am open to suggestions.

    ORANGE COUNTY, Florida (NBC) -- A Florida firefighter has been fired and another has been demoted in connection with a road rage incident in Orange County. Fire officials said a video was released showing Orange County fire engineer David Jordan driving a 15-ton truck and tailgating a car, whose driver wouldn't move over, last May 1. Investigators said Jordan nearly hits the car several times, even though he has room to go around the car. The car then gets into the left turn lane, which investigators said, by law it should have pulled off on the right shoulder and stopped...

"And there is no tailgating anywhere within a one-mile radius of the stadium." "And there are no RVs allowed." Tailgating is permitted during regular- and post-season games for Dolphins fans, a team official on Tuesday said...

    When the Penn State home football games kick off this season, tailgaters in the stadium parking lot get kicked out. A new rule at Beaver Stadium says there will be no tailgate parties during a game this year, an effort to increase safety and curb underage drinking, the Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot-News says. While pre-game and post-game festivities are not affected, Penn State says there will be beefed up police security to make sure the new rule is followed, the newspaper said. Penn State was named "the Ultimate Tailgating Venue" in a 2005 Sports poll.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Stressed Miami drivers speed, tailgate and cut off other drivers so frequently that it has earned the city the title of worst road rage in a survey released Tuesday. Norwalk, Conn.-based AutoVantage, an automobile membership club offering travel services and roadside assistance, also listed Phoenix, New York, Los Angeles and Boston among the top five cities for rude driving in its first "In the Driver's Seat Road Rage Survey." "The advent of road rage is part of every day life," said Todd Smith, director of corporate communications for AutoVantage's parent company, Affinion Group, which has offices in...

    [rant starts] I noticed a car headlights following me too closely last night while driving in the FAR right lane of a regular street, not on the freeway. After a while, I start to get paranoid so I start to slow down from 35 MPH to about 25 MPH. That car still tailgated me. I could practically see the headlights right at my tail. So I stepped on the brake a few times (no, I didn't SLAM on it, just tapped it so the brake light came on and off a few times). The moron still tailgated me, so I...

    MILWAUKEE (AP) - Millions of baseball fans have chugged Milwaukee's finest suds while grilling burgers and brats before Brewers games over the last quarter century - and it turns out every one of them was imbibing illegally. A city ordinance passed in 1980 - and which city officials are about to override - says it's unlawful for anyone to drink alcoholic beverages in public parking lots or public structures. That would include the parking lots around Miller Park, which was built on the site of the old County Stadium instead of downtown in part because the team wanted to maintain...

    GREENVILLE, N.C. (Wireless Flash) -- A new product is helping tailgate party poopers keep their rear end slips to themselves. The GasBGon company is launching a line of flatulence filtering seat cushions specifically for tailgate parties at sporting events. The cushion helps eliminate the sound and stinky smell that comes from "the cheer from the rear" by muffling the toot with acoustical foam and trapping the rank fumes with a carbon filter. Since "everyone passes gas" and tailgating is an "opportune time" for brew and food to make a combustible mix, product co-inventor Jim Huza says the fart suppressor is...
