One thing you should know is that chili is taken about as seriously as football in the state of Texas.

During the first few years of me moving to Texas, the station sponsored a Chili-Cook-off that we held in August. Which, by the way, is the worst month to have a chili cook-off in Texas.

My stomach still hurts from the one time I was a taste judge. Then one year, which was the last year surprisingly, we lost some of the tickets and couldn't pick a winner. If this ever happens to you, for the love of God, don't stand next to the person who announces this. And if you have to announce that you can't pick a winner, do not make a joke out of it.
