While tattoos are a permanent and popular way to immortalize your love of the team, there’s nothing more undeniably Cincinnati than a celebratory chug of Skyline chili straight from the can to support the Bengals on their road to the Super Bowl.
It's been a good luck trend since the team started their winning streak. If the Bengals are up a point? Slam a chili to keep it going. Down? Chug one for good luck.

While these youngsters might not know why their family insists they drink presumably room-temperature Cincinnati-style chili like it’s a 1980s Hudepohl "Hu-Dey" Bengals beer, it’s actually not too bad if you’re willing to try.
Plenty of Bengals fans seem totally unfazed. Thanks to the can’s pull-top lid, the same basic principles of shotgunning a beer can be applied to literally shotgunning a can of watery ground beef.
Just a note: One 15-ounce can of Skyline's original chili has 430 calories, 10 grams of saturated fat, 125 milligrams of cholesterol and 1,830 milligrams of sodium (that’s 80% of your recommended daily value).
Social media clout is temporary, coronary health is lifelong.
Anyway, let's watch some more weirdos in this Twitter thread.
