    This time of year makes me happy when I think about football season being right around the corner. In my house, I'm the one who is into sports and my husband doesn't really pay attention to them, so he's always telling me to stop rushing through summer, but I really do look forward to those fall days when my team is playing and I can cook a big pot of chili or soup. I am a Giants fan, by the way. Is anyone else here looking forward to the start of the season?

    Steelers fan here.

    You've got me hungry for a big bowl of chilli now.

    RabbiKnife Open the pod bay door, please HAL.

    I am always glad when football mania is over.

    DaniH You're probably fine.

    Hubby watches football every so often when certain teams play.

    I don't care about any of it whatsoever. I hardly watch TV, never mind sports. I find it all terribly boring. Which probably isn't true for live games although I've never been to one.

    Not as big a fan as I used to be, but I do enjoy watching it when it's on.

    Oh, Brian...the Steelers...really?? :p

    My husband and I are originally from Texas, so when it comes to chili, it's serious business at my house. Now that I think about it, the chili is probably the reason why he doesn't complain when his wife spends Sunday afternoons yelling at the television.

    I grew up a little more than an hours drive from Pittsburgh so...yes..really. :p

    Texas? Good. That means that you don't ruin it with beans right?

    I love beans.
    Beans, beans, they're good for your heart,
    The more you eat, the more you......,

    Liquid Tension No, it's NOT a fish!!!

    Don't watch as much as I used to. If there's a WWE PPV event (WWE Network) going on, I'll pay more attention to that. But if the Raiders are on tv here, I'll definitely make an effort to watch it.

    Panthers fired their G.M. so not sure how things will go this year.

    We love Pittsburgh! (Just not the Steerlers. Haha!) We've been there several times and really enjoyed it.

    No beans in the chili, but I do agree with Seeking that they are awesome in everything else. :D

    I had some black beans yesterday. In honor of Football Season.

    It's a good city. And I do like beans on the whole and eat them often...but chilli was never meant to have beans. Ever. It's an atrocity and goes against the whole idea of what chilli is supposed to be!

    With that said I live in Ohio now and that's how everyone here makes it. Some of them even pour it over pasta or frito chips. It's crazy.

    Black beans are the champions of beans.

    Frito pie! That's actually a Texas thing and you'll find it at every festival, fair, or sporting event. Friday night high school football isn't complete without a Frito pie! The pasta thing is just plain weird, though. ;)

    Ah ha! So I can blame Texas then. :mad:

    ** I hope you all know that I'm being facetious here. I really couldn't care less how and what other people eat...except I really do hate beans in chilli.

    Yup, yup! I've seen it all over the south, but I'm pretty sure Texas started it. You should try it and report back. :D It's kind of like really sloppy nachos and you can put whatever you want on it, but the most common toppings are chopped onions, grated cheese, and sour cream. It's super convenient, too, because all you have to do is open a small bag of Fritos and pour in some chili. No bowl required!
