Nola ChickCorrespondent IOctober 17, 2008

Let’s face it, you’ll be a little nervous come Sunday afternoon. You’ll find yourself pacing uncontrollably in your living room while watching ESPN’s Sunday Countdown, before switching to FOX NFL Sunday to stare into Michael Strahan’s gap as if it were some “Bermuda Triangle-esque” black hole.

You’ll rub your belly in an effort to soothe what Western doctors and Bywater voodoo Priestesses have previously diagnosed as a case of “the bubble gut.” But as John McCain would say, “My friends, we have a plan to rescue you from these difficult times. The fundamentals of our Chick Sips are strong!”

The Chicks are keeping it light and easy to help you overcome a case of the division rivalry jitters. Our Chick Chow requires little time in the kitchen and comes equipped with a pointy device, perfect for pointing out all the refs missed calls on your flat screen. As for our Chick Sips, they’ll leave you floating like a butterfly, like Steve Smith when he’s about to whip ass on one of his teammates. So as we prepare to turn up the heat in the NFC with a big game against the Panthers, we ask that you fire up the grill and break out the booze for this week’s Chick Chow and Chicks Sips: Skewered John Kasay Satay with Rattled Jake the Snake Shooters.
