• 29th Annual Harriman Cup

    Those who go, know. The Harriman Cup is all about the tailgate. More importantly, how you tailgate. Awards for this stuff are handed out you know (along with Best Outfit, Best Dog, Best Hat, and a few awards for actual sporting achievement). Maximillian Sinsteden knows this. In fact, he's banking on this (he was snubbed last year but still walked away with Best Outfit). Max arrives with a U-Haul carrying his beloved beat-to-hell Oriental party rug, ten box hedges he rented from a company in New York, five crates of liquor, two bartenders, and an open bar.

    Now it's a party.

    Adam Klopp of UVA picks his poison

    Swirl striped paper straws, wicker beer pitchers, and mason jars with your initials written in wax pencil were only a few of the details that made The Party Carpet Tailgate so fun

    After blowing out his entire backside before halftime, Adam Klopp taped what he could together and kept riding

    The annual polo match between Yale and University of Virginia alumni is a bittersweet reminder summer is on its way out. Most everyone is four or five in by the divot stomp just to cope with oncoming summer separation anxiety. You don't have to be an alum to enjoy the festivities though. Harriman has always seemed to embrace "the more the merrier" ethos—just come in your Sunday best. This, of course, means not a single thread of madras, seersucker, or linen is left on a hanger within a 100 mile radius. If you're a lady, points for donning a hat. Sponsors, including JP Crickets, my friend Karen Klopp's What2WearWhere.com, Harpoon Brewery, and Frava (caffeinated juice...brilliant when you think about it), line the safety zone alongside games of ladder toss, croquet, and a grip of tailgates.

    Three hours later, Max humbly accepts the award for Best Tailgate...while being doused in Champagne.

    @Bradford—Unfortunately I do not know who makes that white oxford.

    @Cam—Best Outfit went to a young man named Dean.
