Are you ready for some football?

And, we’re not talking any of that namby-pamby no-hands stuff - that sport had its time to shine earlier this year during the World Cup. We’re talking pig skin: the hard-hitting slice of Americana.

As autumn saunters in, droves of football fans sporting colorful paraphernalia pile themselves into parking lots and stadiums every weekend to cheer on their favorite team.

And all that cheering, not to mention the rigorous parking lot sports of ladder ball, corn hole, flip cup and beer pong (or Beirut, depending on your local persuasion), can certainly work up an appetite. So, we want to know:

    "3 day" BBQ baby back ribs. Because it takes 3 days of prep and cooking to make em.

    And in other CNN news today the rate of diabetes in the US is going to triple due to our craptastic eating habits exemplified by tailgating parties.

    CNN likes having it both ways.

      I had a similar reaction. In a culture plagued by the consequences of obesity one is forced to question the wisdom of celebrating sports events by encouraging mass consumption.

      So true, just like the women's magazines with the dieting articles interspersed with recipes like peanut butter cup cheesecake. Schizophrenic.

    I'd have to say Nachos or Cheeseburgers...and an ice cold beer for me.

    Beer. Everything else can be negotiated. I like a hearty sandwich and chips, myself, but if someone's grilling, well I can't say no to that.

      i'll be your friend for sure if you put some ice in that beer

        Let's compromise. I'll give you a frosty cold mug.

    If it ain't grilled, it doesn't belong at a tailgate. The need for a utensil may also disqualify the food.

    Grilled pizza, burgers and kabobs are the best. Brats are great too, but more (too much) of a pain to prep than the others.

    Fried chicken is THE tailgate food!

    I've had all of the food on that list! Plus the just beer days, I'm a true American!
    Go Chiefs!

    Chili and steak tips with some Sam Adams or Harpoon IPA. I can't think of anything that screams "FOOTBALL" to me any more than that.

      How about having The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders screaming "LOSER" in Tony Romo's earhole? Now That screams FOOTBALL!

      Someone asked me the other day "IPA? What's that?".

      For the love of God, you'd think in Wisconsin you could find any and all types of beer (which you can), but IPA is scarce around these parts. Land of light beer. IPA = my fave.

        Damn,Are we gonna have to Copyrite our names on these Blogs? What a bunch of B.S.

        Really? I can get an IPA anywhere I want to here (Providence, RI/ Boston). It's a staple at any self-respecting bar (or tailgate). Harpoon is made around here, and if you've never had one, you absolutely MUST if you like IPAs.

      What about those Roller Derby games and the Wrasslin' match you took me to? Don't you remember the Submarine races we had? HOT!

    C'Mon Man-Where's the slow and low smoked Beef Brisket-along with all the other stuff listed. Beef Rules!!

    That's a Subway Party Sub. I used to manage a Subway, so I know (makes me special). Bread is made from three stretched out sticks of regular footlong bread dough, then braided. Now you know the secret.
