I started this thread on Ebob in Wine Talk as a serious discussion of wine and football, but I have been banished to Social Hall, so I’ll start again with a discussion of what wine to drink with football and football food.
As a Jets Fan who is going to be watching meaningful January football, I’ll be opening a '07 Saxum JBV. Great wine with Flannery beef grilled on the BGE. Maybe a bottle of Paumanok Barrel Fermented Chardonnay to start, since they are the NY Jets, even if they play in New Joisey.
Beer, you say? No matter how much Posner tries to convince me that wine is not a football drink, I just can’t do Coors Light and Bud. Maybe an Allegash as a a side dish if I can find one. There’s plenty of good Belgian stuff, but that would be un-American.
They are the New York (City) Giants and Jets, not the New York (State) Giants and Jets. The Dallas (City) Cowboys play in Arlington, don’t they? Many city named teams play in their metro areas but not within the city limits.
When I watch the Packers, I should be drinking beer - I can’t stand beer, not to mention Wisconsin style beers - so I’ll have to go with Riesling, as a nod to the German influence and tradition there. Maybe properly fire up some brats!
