CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) --Mountaineer fans in Charleston felt their adrenaline pumping and their team spirit soaring high at a city-wide tailgate party.

Fans banded together to cheer on their team Saturday outside Adelphia Sports Bar and Grill on Capitol Street. The big game was projected onto the side of a building outdoors.

"You just kind of feel like you're in a football atmosphere," fan Amber McMillion said. "It feels great."

Kevin Haynes says coming out to tailgate is a good way to meet up with old friends and share team spirit.

"Of course, we're all a little grayer now," he said with a chuckle, "but this is where we grew up."

Managers at Adelphia say they just started throwing the tailgate parties this season - and plan to continue doing so.
