Believe it or not it’s been 223 days since we last saw the Niners on the field in live action against another team, but the wait is over. Gameday is finally here!
Ok sure, it’s preseason. But still, for those of us who’ve been following the team throughout the long offseason, through free agency, through the draft, and through the lean months after that, the prospect of any actual live game action is exhilirating.
And while we could discuss the recent rash of injuries, or the wide reciever competition, or the warmth of Robert Saleh’s seat, I thought that we could discuss one of the most important aspects of 49ers gameday.
Food. Or more importantly, what is your favorite food or meal or snacks that you like to eat on gameday?
Heath Cummings, from the CBS Fantasy Football podcast, was sharing a favorite of his on twitter recently, which in turn reminded me of a tailgating snack that I hadn’t had in years.
Friend of mine used to make armadillo eggs for tailgate. They're jalepenos filled with cream cheese, wrapped in ground sausage, then wrapped in bacon, then smoked. pic.twitter.com/VNmYrHZKYh— Jeff Medina (@JeffMedina49) August 4, 2019
In all seriousness, if you have never tried armadillo eggs and like to cook - or know someone who does - I highly recommend taking a crack at these. It might be number one on my list, but if not it’s definitely top five, along with pizza, wings, brats, and nachos.
So now I turn it over to you Niners Nation. What are your top 5 favorite gameday foods? What will you be eating while watching the game tonight? Let’s hear it in the comments below!!
