NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Commissioner of Tailgating, Joe Cahn, is on a mission–a crusade of sorts, and on Oct. 23, Cahn will be in Nashville when the Tennessee Titans take on the Houston Texans on behalf of the Aluminum Association’s Can Crusade, a 17-city tour of NFL cities created to educate fans about why using aluminum cans during a tailgate is the smarter choice. Nashville is the 7th stop of the nationwide tour.
“The Can Crusade is the single most important tour that I have ever been on. As the Commissioner of Tailgating, I have a responsibility to the fans to make sure that they are hosting both a fun and safe tailgate on game day,” said Cahn. “The Can Crusade will help me accomplish this goal. Simply put, aluminum cans are the smarter choice as they are portable, stackable, infinitely recyclable and safer.”
Prior to the game, The Commissioner will spread the word about the benefits of aluminum cans, handing out Can Crusade t-shirts, hats, can handles and additional swag at his RV, which will be parked in the LP Stadium parking lot. He will also cook up some of his signature jambalaya.
The Commissioner knows about tailgating as he is one of the nation’s most sought-after authorities. He has traveled more than 800,000 miles and attended more than 800 games during the past 15 years serving as The Commissioner of Tailgating.
Fans are encouraged to interact with The Commissioner during the tour through Twitter (@Tailgating_com) and Facebook (Tailgating.com), and check in at his RV on Foursquare to win prizes. A special QR code will be displayed on his RV at all tour stops that will link fans to a special video message from The Commissioner.
