Skyline Chili is the new Official Chili of UK Athletics

Some very important news concerning University of Kentucky sports broke this weekend, and frankly, I’m shocked no one is talking about it.

On Saturday, Skyline Chili announced it is the new “Official Chili of UK Athletics,” meaning that this fall, you should be able to get a Cheese Coney or Chili Cheese Fries at Kroger Field or Rupp Arena:

Skyline prides itself on Cincinnati-style chili, which includes cinnamon, chocolate, allspice, and Worcestershire sauce. It’s not for everyone — personally, I’m not a fan — but those who love it swear by it. Last year, Skyline opened its first Lexington outpost on Richmond Road and judging by this news, I’m guessing it does pretty well.

In related news, Mike Edwards has to be pissed this didn’t happen sooner. Also, this clip won’t get off my Facebook feed:

    That’s the nastiest crap I’ve ever tasted. It should not be allowed to be called chili.

      Never had it; but, it doesn’t sound good.

      Like Laphroaig scotch, it’s something you love or hate, there is no in between. You have to try it for yourself to find out. I personally love it!

      Tyler, this may be news to you, but it’s already been posted about… I think you need a KSR post coordinator position…

      Skyline is not chili – it is just skyline. 3-way with a coney is a wonder lunch. Gotta have the hot sauce though. Lots of it. I LOVE skyline. We make casseroles at home with spaghetti, hotdogs, and the stuff the call chili. Don’t forget the hot sauce from skyline

      Gold stars is not good

      If you want chili, make it at home, go to Texas or go to checks in Louisville

      Most “chili” you can get in bar or restaurant is not good

    LaRosa’s next door is a much better bet. Save the Skyline for the cat (if it’ll touch it).

    Not for everyone, but 1 of my top 5 things to eat on the planet!

    Big fan of Skyline here; this is great news! Also, the Richmond Rd location is NOT Lexington’s first. Skyline was at the corner of Rose and Ave of Champions when I was in school in the late 80s/ early 90s. I went there a lot.

    Cincy chili is nasty. Hate that cinnamon and hate sweet chili. Damn Yankees! What the hell!

      Effing Cincinnati has nothing to do with Yankees.

    As a northern kentuckian/corbin-ite, I’m very excited about this.

    This is great news……if you enjoy peeing out of your butthole.

      Certainly represents UC – a buncha cheese covering up the shit underneath.

    That looks gross. I’d rather eat a can of Ol’ Roy dog food.

    We have legal marijuana in Colorado but I still miss Cincinnati chili. We I fly back to northern Kentucky the first place I go is Skyline or Dixie chili.

    I am a self proclaimed chili master. I have 2 gallons in my crock right now. I’ll take my chili and most homemade chilies over Skyline, but I DO get a craving for Skyline occasionally and enjoy the unique taste with a cold beer. I wouldn’t eat it every day, but it has it’s place.

      Skyline was always a decent drunk-food option but it isn’t chili.
