Catching up with the ketchup tradition at Buffalo Bills tailgates

BY foxsports • December 17, 2014

Tailigating and football are synonymous.

Traditions and fancy menus are all over pro and college football.

However, For The Win has captured perhaps the most charming and unique of pregame events.

The tradition involves a 1980 Ford Pinto wagon --“ can anyone believe it still exists -- a hamburger,€“ and ketchup.

Yes, a condiment.

For The Win's Chris Strauss relates how Ken Johnson, who bought the car for $300 in 1986, celebrates game days. Talk about dedicated, Johnson hasn't missed a Bills game --€“ home or away --€“ in 21 years.

The Pinto itself serves as the base of a grill before games at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

We won't spoil the ritual, so go to the three-minute mark to watch the fun.
