What goes better with March Madness than meat? Nothing is the correct answer. Meat is superior to all other foods for sports watching. No sports bar advertises 50 high def big screen tvs and the biggest salad bar in town. That would be stupid and the place wouldn’t be open more than a month. Sports and meat go together like steak and more steak.
ESPN has decided that a March Madness meat bracket is in order. I won’t give away the winner but I will say that the Chicken Wing gets robbed. Chicken Tails? Who eats that? Who decided eating the ass of a chicken was a good idea? Wings are like the stubby little legs of angels coated in delicious sauces of your choosing.
The bracket is correct about one thing however, Filet Mignon is perennially overrated. It looks delicious and meaty and wonderful and then you take a bite and you wait for the deliciousness to punch you in the face and all you get is a gentle nudge in the arm like you were just punched by an invalid. Then you realize for the price of this half assed 8 oz filet you could have had a giant ribeye, the steak champion (if anyone tells you different they are a communist). Steak au Poivre only exists because filet is so useless you have to coat it in cracked peppercorns and then eat it with a sauce made of liquor just so you have something to taste. Cooking with liquor makes anything better. To clarify: Filet = invalid grandmother punch, Ribeye = A baseball bat of awesomeness right to your face.
So enjoy the NCAA tournament and if your bracket has fallen apart like mine go grill something and let your salty tears rain down and season the meat like so many missed 3 pointers.
