The Five Best Foods at Last Night's Cowboys Game

Categories: Chewing the Fat

Paella.jpg
​The commercial breaks during Monday Night Football are an utter beat-down. That's my game analysis.

Now for the food. Following are five highlights from tailgating and inside Jerry's world:

​1. Hans Yoo of Plano made the above from-scratch paella on a sidewalk, with everything he needed in one brown grocery bag. He gets points for creativity, efficiency and style. Well played, Yoo.

2. The Kobe BBQ Burger in Jerry's World rings in at $13 and is topped with onion rings and barbeque sauce on a big, toasty bun. Cooked over flaming grill, the only thing smoking-up the stadium more were all those white boots.

​Booze intermission: Who needs food? Jagermeister and Red Bull alone will get you there (wherever it is you need to go). Mixologist Waylon Franks told me his uncle brought him to the game as a birthday present. I asked Uncle if it was the first time he'd brought his nephew to a game. "Yep." Then I asked, given Waylon's pregame hydration, could it possibly be the last? He didn't see the humor and wouldn't answer. Whatev. Waylon's got this.

3. The only thing more amusing then Dez Bryant getting pantsed last night (proving the brilliance of Northpark's mall cops) is this vat of cheese balls topped off with a bag of cheese puffs. Genius.

​ 4. The substances that bring people together. The ties that bind, until, of course everyone is drunk and stupid after the game trying to pack all this stuff up and make it home before dawn without starting too many fights. Tailgating = good times.

​​5. Can't leave out the grilled fajitas with a fresh homemade pico de gallo.

I'll be there too. But, how will I distinguish you from all the others that want me to partake in a beverage with them?

I'll be the good looking guy wearing a cowboy hat! Hollar!

When I find out the parking pass info..I'll post it..so all the CoAters are welcomed to stroll over.

You tell him what you'll be wearing, and he'll find you.  Trust me on this one.

May be a wee bit more crowded than Westfest, PD! But I can find a needle in a haystack, skin a buck with a pocketknife, run a trot line and this country boy will survive!

Bringing this conversation back from the rejects from the film "Idiocracy"..I like the paella, its something we dont see too much down here..it does appear to have a bit of burnt in the pan, but looks excellent nontheless. The Kobe looks like the A-1 six dollar burger I ate at Carls Jr. yesterday...

Not questioning the taste wonder that is properly cooked paella, but....

It has no place at a tailgate.  It's like taking a Beaujolais to a kegger.

+1 for multiple picks of charred animal grill porn

Just think of it as Spanish jambalaya.

I know what it is, I know how to make it, and I like it.  It just doesn't belong at a tailgate.

Who takes forks and crap to a tailgate?!?!?!

Finger foods rule the day.

how is it idoicracy, we are all discussing food in some form or another. oh and paella, is that some sort of asian form of pay for play, JWP style?

I like where you're going with this article. I give you two thumbs up.

BTW, it was Deion Sanders that got pantsed in that commerical, if that's what I think you were talking about with the cheetos.

I apologize for missing this a day ago. Deion Sanders is about to get pantsed in a divorce case possibly, but there's no commercial I'm referring to. Dez got pantsed in the first quarter. I saw it live and a replay on the Jerry-tron. (Just had to validate what little sports knowledge I have. Thanks. Bye.)

Dez was knocked to the ground, then his pants was on the ground.. And now you know.....the rest of the story.

$13 for horse meat and funyuns? Big burger, no, small plate. I've never heard of bringing Asian buffet to a tailgate.

Hey Jon? Here's a tip for you: Balding 50 year olds aren't supposed to have a freakin' soul patch.

Is that the  Walmart (or) Walgreens blog?  I prefer Walgreens, because I usually don't see people with pussy eye patches, and stinkfoot.  AND you want to talk about trolls; walk in my shoes for a day..........I have fake kergs, evil kergs, double fake scott, rob em, nuance kerg, etc. to deal with on a daily basis.

Kthxbye, you hipsters up in this moth'a. Call RW, he has Dr. Malloofs number, w/ a 10% referral discount.

Can the Stars make a playoff run, while posting one of the lowest payrolls in the league or is this all a ponzi scam with the fans?

You tell him.  I hate trolls too.  Have you ever met Greggo?

and some people thought Richie had throw away posts.

#1 looks like someone took shit on a stick and dropped it in a pan and stirred it

#2 whats the point in eating any type of Kobe beef, if you are going ruin it with a bunch of shit you put on it

#3 cheese puff= possible sex toy?

#4 the overcooker, he's overcooking you

#5 fajita meet should never be cooked over propane, ruins all the marinade flavor and burns the taste out

This is a VERY nice synopsis, and very funny to me. Good job SM!

Is this a nod to your new audience?  If so, starting out with a paella reference is only going to make us kick you harder.  I really miss RW.  If they will bring him back, I swear to wait at least 4 posts before I attack.

First biotches!  Is that hammered dog sh%t in pic #1?  The guy with the backwards hat, Jagermeister and Red Bull.........sitting with those two fat slobs.........utter douchery?  I don't see any brats, rib eyes, Shiners or rib eyes-what the what?  Tailgating at the Prairie Turd is like tailgating  in the Albertson's parking lot.

Might need to draw Davy in on this: Which parking lot has more Mescuns: Alamo, Jerrah World/Deathstar, Fiesta off of 28th and Main in the Fort?

The Hispanic mall at 35 and Seminary in Fort Worth, hands down. Better be somewhat fluent in Spanish if you're there.
