A Big Bowl of Red
"In my part of the country, folks gather 'round the television in mid-october in celebration of our two beloved football teams: the Longhorns of The University of Texas and the Sooners of Oklahoma University. For decades, the game has been played at the Cotton Bowl in Fair Park, Dallas which is also the site of the Texas State Fair. Attending the Texas State Fair in October is a wonderful event, especially for the whole family. The food, of course, is incredible. Did you know that the corn dog was invented at the State Fair of Texas? It's true. For me, the Texas-OU game means chili ... Texas-style chili. That is, real chili. None of that cinnamon-laced slop they serve over spaghetti in Cincinnati."
