WATCH: San Francisco Giants kayaker “Cove-gates” with grill in McCovey Cove
The great American Tailgate is a tradition as old as sports itself. Usually, it’s held in a parking lot just outside the stadium with upwards of 50,000 of your closest (or newest) friends. This San Francisco Giants fan takes tailgating to a new locale. Let’s call it the “Cove-Gate”. Check out this enterprising fan who broke out the classic Weber grill on his kayak in McCovey Cove behind the RF wall at AT&T Park (via MLB.com)
Don’t try that at home unless you know what you’re doing, fires and boats usually don’t mix well. While the broadcasters aren’t so sure he’s cooking, note the hot sauce in one of the cup holders (to complement the long neck in the other). The Giants are not only 5 games ahead of the field in the NL West, they’re one cool tailgate ahead of all major league baseball fans.
