Michael Galati


The Republic of Cincinnati ( was founded in 2012 and has since established itself as the unofficial source for all things Bearcats tailgating, at home and on the road. In 2015, we added a 12 foot tailgate trailer with a 50" TV, sound system, integrated awning, coolers, and all the accessories to host a great tailgate, regardless of where we are. The trailer has now travelled thousands of miles, most recently to South Bend, IN on 10/02/21 (when the attached photo was taken) for the #7 Bearcats upset of #9 Notre Dame in Notre Dame Stadium. We look forward to continuing to expand our tailgate and your consideration for this award will certainly help. Plenty of more photos and videos available upon request (and via our social media - @repofcincinnati on twitter and instagram).
