And the winner is ...
In true Patriots fashion, the "Titans of the Tailgate" battle turned into a virtual slugfest. The online poll turned into a back-and-forth brawl (with more than 20,000 votes), and in the end the the jammin' crew from Medfield trounced Fitchburg bunch. But the poll was only one part of our three-headed judging process, and in the end both the Lighter Side and the Rattle Donkey crew (winners of last years' contest), judged the Fitchburg crew to have the better video. So, in a 2-1 vote, the Fitchburg squad are the new "Titans of the Tailgate." Congrats to both, go Pats, and we'll see you out in the parking lots.
Judge No. 1
Judge No. 2
The Lighter Side
It was a tough call, but in the end, one team just brought a little more to the table. Literally.
The Rattle Donkey
Like Simon Cowell, the Rattle Donkey had a hard time saying something nice about either team, but it picked a favorite in the end.
Congratulations Fitchburg, the official "Titans of the Tailgate".
While the readers said one thing, that's why we have a judge's panel. The tailgaters from Fitchburg have earned the title, "Titans of the Tailgate". The team is also the recipients of a Char-Broil Fire and Ice grill, Eastman 30-qt. turkey fryer kit, and a Coleman Screen Haven.
