Tailgate Judgment: What did you eat and/or drink during football?

Sam Greenwood

Over 100 Americans watch football every weekend. Many of them attempt to do so while also drinking and eating things. If you are one of these people, and you desire judgment, tell Jon what you ate/drank and he will rate it from 1 to 10.

After a one-week hiatus, TAILGATE JUDGMENT returns! I know it's now been two weeks since you've eaten or drank anything (since eating or drinking things outside my purview is inherently pointless), and you must have been hungry. I am sorry to have kept you waiting.

Here's how this works, if you're new here: leave a comment below describing what you ate and/or drank while tailgating, or at the bar, or watching football at home, or whatever else. I will then, time permitting, give you a rating between 1 and 10, and do my best to explain said rating.

I'll start. FOOD: homemade chili and cornbread at a friend's house. The chili was not as spicy as I would normally like, but it was made from homemade tomatoes, rather than canned paste or the cruddy watery tomatoes that tend to populate grocery stores this time of year. It was delicious, as was the cornbread. I will rate this an 8 out of 10.

DRINK: well, this was certainly unfortunate. I had a few Coors Lights, and that was it. In previous installments of TAILGATE JUDGMENT I have been rather forgiving toward crummy macrobrews. While they do have their place, drinking them exclusively is just about the least fun I can imagine having. I must hand myself a 3/10 rating, and I must be prepared to hand you a similar rating if you committed the error I did.

Before we begin, a programming note. Our friend Spilly has been busy:

Yes, y'all, Spilly has made a cheesesteak. Yes indeed, that is cheesecake in the pan. If this is your rodeo, you'll want to check it out.

Your turn! I probably won't be able to rate every single comment, but I will get to as many as I can.

What did you have to eat and/or drink on Saturday or Sunday while watching football, friend?
