Generation Opportunity brings its “Opt-Out” of Obamacare tailgate to Notre Dame

 

Last weekend, Generation Opportunity took it’s “Opt-Out” of Obamacare tailgate to the University of Notre Dame, home of the Fighting Irish.

 

After a Notre Dame student heard about their party at the University of Miami, he asked Generation Opportunity to come to his school’s last football game of the year. The group happily obliged.

They came in a motorcade of six SUVs with four cases of soda, six super value boxes of Swiss Miss and two boxes of apple cider mix.

As well as six cases of water.

They set up tents and harnessed them to the back of the SUVs.

And best of all, they brought 75 boxes of pizza.

It was 28 degrees out side, with a real feel of 18 degrees, and 36 mile an hour winds. But more than 100 students still showed up.

And with them they brought the real party: 6 bottles of Andre, two handles of Fireball Whiskey, two cases of beer and several handles of vodka, rum and gin.

It was so cold even the DJ Generation Opportunity hired had to stop spinning beats because his equipment was freezing. He switched to a boombox, which he ran out the back hatch of his SUV.

But the students kept coming. And pretty soon, students from other tailgates heard about the free pizza and went in search of Generation Opportunity’s tailgate.

Soon Generation Opportunity mascot Creepy Uncle Sam joined the party.

And Creepy Uncle Sam really knows how to party.

Then it started to snow.

 Really snow. It was practically a blizzard.

But even that didn’t keep the students away. They found creative ways to stay warm.

All things considered, it was a pretty successful tailgate.
