Are You Ready for Some Football? No?

Contrary to what you might expect, the Stupor Bowl Heavy Metal Chili Cookoff looks to be as rigorously refereed as the big game. Here’s a few rules: “All chili must be in a crockpot.” “No straight-arming DJ Foodcourt.” “All chili shall be given a heavy metal name.” “All parties must listen to see if half-time entertainers the Who are reckless and thrilling or simply pleasant and sort of sad. (Also: Will Dave Grohl be playing drums? Because we wouldn’t be surprised if Dave Grohl were suddenly just there, onstage, with the Who, playing drums).” Actually, we made several of those rules up — we stormed the field! — but not the ones about the crockpot and the naming: Last year, Nordic Flesh Feast took home first prize. Behold, it was a white chili. Another real rule: You have to make four quarts of chili. To give you an idea, that’s eight pints, the measurement strata where real chili-making, and Super Bowl drinking, begins.
