Brothers Starting NFL-Wide Tailgate Crusade At Giants Season Opener
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) - Two brothers from Baltimore will put a lot of miles on their RV this fall doing something a lot of football fans wish they could.
They’ll be driving 25,000 miles to tailgate at a home game for every team in the National Football League.
WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman On The Story
They’re starting with the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. on Wednesday.
“What better place to start than New York, right?” John Trupiano told WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman.

It’s an idea football fans toss around usually when they’re tossing a few back.
“To be honest, that’s the way it started with my brother Michael and me,” John said.
Now, John and Michael are embarking on the ultimate road trip to see 32 games in 17 weeks.
“There are several Thursday night games. In fact, if you count the season opener as the Thursday night game there are 16 during the course of the season,” John said.
The two brothers are tech entrepreneurs.
“It feels very much like a start up on this RV here,” John said.
“Is this something you expect to make money from?” asked Silverman.
“Uh. It’s something I hope not to lose money doing,” John answered.
They’ll also have a film crew along for the ride to capture the fan experience in each city.
