Tail Wagger

Yeah, Buddy
The Pitch: We went to the Eagles preseason opener against the Steelers last week and let it be duly noted that tailgating is in full swing.

This is great for holding IDs, credit cards and some cold, hard cash and it’s sure to put some cold, hard cash in your pocket too.

It comes in black, blue, gunmetal or red and pricing starts at: 75; $4.26-P. See it here:
