Are You Ready for Some Friday Night Football?

Can you tell that we at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford are just a tad bit excited about football season? While we’re enjoying our lazy football Sundays on the couch, we’re also proud to catch some Friday night football as we support our local high school athletes.

Friday nights around here are prime time to see future Steelers go head-to-head with rival schools, seeking to add that ‘W’ to their record for the year. Though high school is certainly different now than when we were students, nothing has changed about the tradition of showing school spirit and making some noise. Probably the only time we get quiet around here during a football game is when the marching band plays the National Anthem and in the .7 seconds before a game-winning play is made.

At the time of this writing, local high schools Pine-Richland and North Hills are currently undefeated, though after the teams play each other, only one will keep a ‘0’ in the loss column.

Nearby North Allegheny High School is also in prime position to make this a great season.

Which local high school teams do your support? Maybe we’ll see you in the bleachers or at the concession stand in line sometime soon!

Enjoy the Football Season with an Edge, Escape, or Explorer

The football season is ramping up, and what could be a better way to bond with your family than to bring everyone to see a game?

Taking the family around takes a dependable and capable vehicle, which is why at Shults Ford we recommend the Ford Edge, Escape, or Explorer, depending on how many kids you need to carry around.

Speaking of kids, the North Allegheny High School football team is currently 1-2 in wins-losses. They need all the support they can get! With one of the vehicles mentioned above, you’ll be able to bring the whole family to the game and all the football gear you need if one of your kids is on the team.

But the Edge, Escape, and Explorer aren’t just great people-movers. They also ensure the utmost safety with active technologies like BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert and forward collision warning with brake support. They also get great fuel economy, so all those trips to the local game will barely make a dent in the fuel gauge!

Ultimate Tailgate: 6 steps to success

Football season has arrived, and that means that tailgating season has arrived with it. Here are some tips that will improve your tailgate experience, making your Saturdays or Sundays even more fun.

Provide a lot of refreshments: It’s not a party without drinks! Be sure to stock a cooler with enough cans of beer to satisfy all your guests. At the same time, though, don’t forget to get some six packs of soda for nondrinkers and under-age partiers. And cheering in the hot sun can leave you parched, so remember to stay hydrated with plenty of bottled water.

Up your food game: A successful tailgate requires awesome food. Grill up some burgers and hot dogs, along with vegetarian options. Have a wide range of tailgating foods available so everyone has a variety they enjoy.

Dress Like A Pro Tailgater: Don’t forget to look the part while playing corn hole! Wear your team colors or your favorite player’s jersey. No matter what, make sure you are enjoying yourself and you are dressed for the weather, warm or cold.

Have a portable TV and radio: A portable TV allows you to enjoy both the pre-game and the game. Want to have some music but don’t have a cordless radio? You can use your car radio while having your open trunk double as additional seating or a food/drink station.

Of course, the most important part of tailgating is doing it in a great car or truck. You can find one of those here at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford!
