Game On! Your NFL Game Day Tailgate Party Checklist

NFL season is here. The game we’ve all been waiting for all year is finally making its season debut this week.

And if you are like most of us, you’ve been doing everything you can to get prepped for the best matchups of the season.

Can Cleveland deliver on the pre-season hype with star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. as their newest addition?  And will the Patriots be able to hold onto the top spot of the AFC East this year? 

With all that excitement, there’s no better way to kickoff the season than with an epic tailgate party! We can’t think of a better way to cap off this huge weekend than getting your friends together and watching the most anticipated event of the fall! And while everyone will undoubtedly be itching to catch the game that has their favorite teams facing off, what about the other games running? There’s no doubt that you don’t want to miss any of the games that are playing (and probably streaming) concurrently. 

Luckily, we’re here to help you get ready for the season, with a checklist of everything you’ll need to watch the first games of the season with your friends in style.  And those games you want to catch up on this week after the party? Yeah, we’ve got you covered there, too. 

Fire up the grill, tune into ESPN.com,  hit record on the latest version of Replay Media Capture, and get ready to rock and roll this NFL season. 

Have you got everything you need?

A Great Tailgate Party Spread

You know a party really isn’t a party without great food and drinks. Dig through your best recipes and put together a great collection of party food and appetizers for all your tailgate party guests. (Hint: We really love the Argentinian skewers, but there are so many great alternatives for any food preferences…)

Cozy Cover-Ups to Keep Warm

One of the coolest things about tailgating is enjoying the first traces of Fall outside with your friends, often over a cooler of drinks, enjoying the heat from the grill.  Whether you choose to watch in your home or in the stadium or anywhere else… Fall is nearly here, and you don’t want to get stuck when the breeze hits without something to wrap up in. 

Make sure you’re not caught in the cold without:

  • Blankets
  • Sweaters (even better if they are sporting your favorite team!)
  • Cover-ups 

No judgement here… Even if they look a little silly, the warmer the better! 

Party Essentials & Utilities

It’s probably not the most  fun part of the party to think about, but making sure you’ve got your party essentials in place is crucial. What’s most likely the least fun part of party planning may be your biggest lifesaver. Thinking ahead will save you so much time (and cleanup) in the future. What do you need?

  • Food essentials: Utensils, cups, plates and napkins are a great start
  • Bags of all sizes: You’ll need these for easy cleanup… Big ones to collect trash, and small ones to save leftover food. 
  • Ice, ice, baby: It goes without saying: you want to make sure you’ve got what you need to keep food fresh and drinks cold. 

For the environmentally conscious, there are also plenty of sustainable and biodegradable options so you don’t create a huge carbon footprint to have a great tailgate. 

An Incredible Playlist 

While you wait for the game to start, or even if you want to get down during the half, having a killer playlist is half the fun. We especially love these jams to get hyped for the big game, but there are so many more to suit the vibe of any party! 

Games, Games, and More Games

While we are on the subject: some of the best parties are the ones where everyone can indulge their playful sides… That’s right, it’s so key for your party crew  to be able to stretch their legs, stretch their brains and have a bit of fun between halves or while they wait. Or, if you’re feeling creative, you could even build your gameplay into the football game… For every touchdown, guests can do a dance, complete a dare, or anything else you can invent. The important thing here is to keep it fun! 

Some of our favorites? Outscord has a great compilation of DIY games that are great for almost any party!

And finally…

Your Own Playlist of the Best Games Streaming Online

Just because you are having a blast at your tailgate party doesn’t mean you have to miss any of the action from your other favorite teams while you are playing cornhole in the fresh fall air! With Replay Media Capture, you’ve got a great way to capture all streaming games so you are not missing a single event. Don’t miss the chance to recap the plays that happened while you were playing Flipcup or having a cookout while your favorite team did the touchdown dance. You can catch every single game online with Replay Media Capture and make sure that you can keep up with friends from work who didn’t make it to your tailgate shindig! 

So are you game ready? Get Replay Media Capture or get the latest update so you are all set for this weekend’s biggest match-ups, and for the entire season ahead!

Where to watch the NFL & College Football online

NFL-BLOG

Football is back. We know you know, but with more people cutting cable, and more ways to watch NCAA D1 football and the NFL than ever before, it can be a chore figuring out just how you’ll get your gridiron fix.

Fear not! We’ve collected the main sources for watching professional and college football online. You can record each and every snap, sack and tackle with Applian recording products from these streaming services, and store them in whatever format suits your needs.

NFL GamePass

The NFL is in some ways the most liberal of all pro sports – constantly adopting new rules, technologies and ideas. So it’s no surprise the NFL has started offering replays of each and every regular season game via its GamePass subscription service.

While you can’t get live games via GamePass, you can get on-demand HD replays of all 256 regular season games which you can record with Replay Video Capture. If you’re less visual and need your live fix, GamePass offers every NFL game live via audio stream, which you can easily capture and keep with Replay Radio. All you have to do is hit the “Quick Record” button at the bottom of the screen to start capturing the audio you’re playing – when finished, just tap the button again to stop recording.

WatchESPN

ESPN covers Football, both college and pro, as vigorously as anyone. They offer football live streaming online. Check out ESPN’s filterable pro and college broadcast schedule here and use Replay Video Capture to keep the games for your own personal viewing pleasure.

To learn how to use Replay Video Capture to record and store all of your most important games this season, check out this handy video to walk you through, step-by-step:

YouTube

Complete, non-live college football games are available on YouTube on the Watch College Football channel. The selection is spotty, but boy are there some gems. Use Replay Media Catcher to download classic college football from YouTube to up your fansmanship!

With a simple copy/paste action of the YouTube video’s URL into Replay Media Catcher, you can quickly and easily download the action, or turn on Auto-Mode to instantly record what’s streaming on your screen. To learn more about how to use Replay Media, watch this video:

Have a great football season, and happy capturing!

Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction – Vol 11

Our superstar UX lead here at Applian, Dr. Jeffrey Wilson, PhD, spends a lot of time analyzing debug logs from customers. He likes to give customers a quick 2 minute video to test record so that he can keep the logs small. So he frequently searches out these short video clips which end up playing a vital role in the data logging procedure. Needless to say, he sees quite a few videos (and other types of media).

This month, Dr. Wilson actually received this video from a recent customer. He thought it was good enough to share. Below a fictitious (or is it?) account of college soccer as it gets down to the ever-dramatic penalty shots. So good it makes our face hurt. Enjoy!

Enjoy the Super Bowl with Replay Video Capture 7

superbowl-blog

What a season of football! And it’s all about to end in a week with the Super Bowl. Specifically, a game between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. If you’re like us then you aren’t just watching it for the end score, but also for the halftime show, the expensive commercials, and the pre-game commentary. Now, you don’t even need to watch it from the ugly jumbo TV in that noisy pub you hate, you can actually stream it LIVE on your PC through NBC. Which also means that you can record all of the spontaneous action and hilarity with your copy of Replay Video Capture 7.

In fact, one of our favorite parts of watching the NFL is pretending we’re the Bad-Lip Reading folks and coming up with our own witty quips in the mouths of 200+ lb. athletes.  If you record and capture the game on February 1st, you can even make one for yourself! And just in case you missed it, they released the new NFL Bad-Lip Reading 2015, so be sure to check it out below for inspiration. Oh, and don’t forget to grab Replay Video Capture before kickoff on Sunday!
