Do You Want Ketchup With That? Pinto Ron's Buffalo Tailgate Goes Into Overdrive


"No one circles the wagons like Bills fans." --- Chris Berman, ESPN

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Move over "Reverend", there's a new tailgating sheriff in town.

Ken "Pinto Ron" Johnson is among the more famous tailgaters in the NFL. And Kenny and his crew showed their stuff before the Patriots-Bills game Sunday at the Red Pinto Tailgate Party.

"The Bills game isn't just a game, it's a whole day event," Johnson said before the Patriots and Bills squared off at Ralph Wilson Stadium. "You get here early. You tailgate for five hours. You see the game. You keep the party rolling. Your ticket buys you an entire day, not just three hours."

The centerpiece of Johnson's party is his 1980 red Ford Pinto which serves as the main grill for the event. On the hood of the Pinto, Johnson's team is grilling up burgers, bacon, wings, and more. Oh and then there's the bowling ball shots, of course.

But the main event is the ketchup ceremony. That's when Johnson holds his burger and gets squired with ketchup... then mustard... while a wild dance party breaks out.

It's a Buffalo tradition unlike any other.
