Tomorrow night is the big Ohio State/Texas football game and I am Stoked! I have been excited for about two and a half weeks. I'm gonna dress up in OSU clothing, wear OSU buttons, put on a foam OSU #1 finger, and hell, my eyes may even well up when the Alma Mater is played by TBDBITL. This is funny, considering I'm not even a football fan. Come to think of it, I'm even less of an OSU fan. My biggest reason for not being a fan of OSU, AND their football program is, the fact that just about the ENTIRE city is crazy about game day saturday, but because of politics, and the corporate machine, the average joe (who happens to be OSU football's biggest proponent) can't even purchase a ticket to view the team he loves and supports so much.
Then why am I so hyped about the game?
Well, my lovely wife & I have a tradition, and that's eating chili and Frito's Scoops for at least one game. I usually get the ingredients together the friday nite before, start it the next morning, and let the chili slow simmer all day while we're at work. That way, when we get home we've got some bomb-ass chili waiting for us. I'm sure our dogs go nuts smelling the stuff all day. But, dear friend, the chili alone is not the reason for MY anticipation for the game either.
At least twice a year, I get an unnatural craving for CHILI-DOGS. Coneys if you will. I don't know what it is, but I'm unable to function properly until I get a coney when the desire for one sets in. I've thought about coneys nonstop for two days straight. I've thought of multitudes of topping combinations. I've thought about how many I would attempt to eat. (I'm gonna try for 3/4ths of an eight pack of hot dogs) I've even thought about how many I'd be willing to share. I plan on eating chili dogs until I get sick, because I love 'em so much.
Yeah I know, I'm a pig. But hey, if I have to endure an OSU game, I may as well do it while in a coney coma, right?
