Today’s professional athletes have all health advantages at their fingertips. World class nutritionists, body scan reports, team physicians…the list goes on an on. So, when a NFL team switches sponsorships of a certified food pyramid product, it’s a huge deal.

Enormous news from the Cincinnati Bengals account this morning, as they announced after a successful, healthy 20 year relationship with Gold Star, their new official chili sponsor is now Skyline.

News of the new chili sponsor has rocked the sports world. Skyline’s 160 chain restaurants that primarily cover Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Florida are celebrating by drowning themselves in spaghetti topped with a gang of brown, chunky sludge. If you’re looking for a new NFL team and love chili hot dogs with a light accent of eight pounds of shredded cheese, the 2021 AFC Champions are the squad for you.

With the new corporate announcement, we’re looking forward to seeing how Joe Burrow plays quarterback next year at 350 pounds. Will Ja’Marr Chase continue to make unbelievable grabs when his gloves are covered in dirt-colored muck? Orlando Brown, the team’s shiny new left tackle, is currently listed at 345 pounds…can we assume he’s going to suit up week one at 645?

Nothing but positives can come out of this fresh, new sponsorship. Top level athletes and chili, an absolute perfect match.

Sunday State of Mind: Super Bowl LVI

It is with profound sadness we write this week’s SSM, as the football season is officially over. Since we don’t want to see football go, we’re recapping the game that just happened; with the Los Angeles Rams winning the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl 56.

First quarter some action, a 7-3 score
An OBJ touchdown, but there would be more
Bengals mustered a field goal, but scoring was not hearty
Final score in mind, may have kept them from the Lombardi

A busy second quarter, plenty to talk about
Cooper Kupp scored once, Bengals ended their end zone drought
Terrible sight to see, Odell Beckham hurt his knee
Rams were down a playmaker after the injury

Maybe better than the game, the Pepsi Halftime Show
A collection of nostalgia singing songs that we all know
Snoop and Dre were great, Em, Kendrick, Mary J
How about Mr. In Da Club, please give us a replay

Cincinnati came out hot after the halftime break
A Burrow bomb to Higgins, would LA start to shake?
The 75 yard touchdown would be the highIight here
Other than trading field goals, the game’s ending was near

Only one score in the final frame, but it was the winner
Stafford to Cooper Kupp a second time, chicken dinner
With that touchdown the Rams secured a Super victory
Cemented themselves as champions, NFL history
