It's no secret that Seattle is one of Guy Fieri's favorite cities in the country. No surprise, then, that one of three new episodes of Tailgate Warriors was taped yesterday, Saturday, August 21, 2010 at Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks.
The Green Bay Packers were in Seattle for a pre-season game, and two tailgate teams represented each NFL team for an epic Battle on the Blacktop, to be televised on The Food Network later this Fall.
Ray "Dr. BBQ" Lampe (website) and Jay "The Tailgate Guy" DiEugenio (website) were back as judges.
DrBBQ - Tailgate Warriors starts shooting Saturday! Guy's the host, I'm a judge and real tailgaters are cooking. Catfish OK, but please no snake!
TheTailgateGuy - TAILGATE WARRIORS IS BACK!!! Filming this weekend in Seattle, next weekend in Oakland, and next month in NOLA!
Marcellus Wiley (website), a retired San Diego Charger selected to the AFC Pro Bowl team in 2001 and current co-host of "Winners Bracket" on ABC, was on set as a judge too.
