Dive In! The Chili Tastes Great!
With Superbowl Sunday just around the corner, Cincinnati Bengals Tight End C.J. Uzomah made an extraordinary bet. If the Bengals win, he’s taking a bath in Skyline Chili, a local Cincinnati favorite. When asked by a reporter, C.J. took it one step further.
“Put it in a swimming pool and I’ll dive in there. And, eat my way out.” Click the triangle below to hear the statement.
We’d Pay To See It
C. J. Uzomah had a career season and a splash in a chili-filled swimming pool would be the icing on the cake. Or, the cheese on top of the chili? Either way, Uzomah’s 493 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns helped the Bengals get to their third Superbowl appearance.
Eat In or Carry Out
Skyline Chili has been a favorite in the Cincinnati area since 1949 when Greek immigrant Nicholas Lambrinides opened his first restaurant on a hilltop with a great view of the cityscape.
With no Texas teams involved, we’d have to cheer for the swimmer. Go Bengals!
