Gary Cohen’s chili was operating sizzling Monday evening.
Cincinnati is famed for a number of issues: its sports activities groups, Jon Moxley and Skyline Chili. Just a few of this stuff are objectively nice — however not Skyline Chili, the Mets broadcaster mentioned.
Cohen supplied play-by-play on a video of a Skyline Chili 5-Method platter being made in the course of the Mets-Reds matchup — that is spaghetti, beans, chili, chopped onions and about 2 kilos of shredded cheese, should you’re retaining rating at house — and had some fairly inflammatory feedback on Cincy’s “native delicacy” and its “disgusting chili gravy”

A small snippet of the dialogue:
Cohen: “… And that is imagined to be meals that you just really eat. Ronnie, Ronnie — have you ever ever had Skyline Chili?”
Darling: “I’ve not, I’ve not.”
Cohen: “I might advocate … it’s essential to attempt all the pieces as soon as. What does not kill you makes you stronger. Strive it as soon as, and then you definitely’ll by no means eat it once more.”
In Cohen’s protection, amongst regional meals, Skyline Chili by no means gave the impression to be excessive on the totem pole of must-have choices. Not like Chicago-style pizza or Kansas Metropolis barbecue.
Cohen’s incendiary phrases are solely the third-hottest factor to come back out of Cincinnati on Monday evening: The Mets and Reds had been locked in an extra-innings shootout, with New York outlasting Cincinnati in a 15-11 victory.
Somebody get this man a New York slice.
