Yeah, that's right. I said alligator meat.
Now, I understand that this BCS Championship Game is THE GAME for OSU (and Gator) fans across the country. I understand that it means life or death (or something serious like that) for many people here in northwest Ohio - you know who you are....you claim to bleed scarlet and gray.
But really, is anyone going to pay $14.99 a pound for alligator meat so they can have a "tailgator" party?
I've had alligator meat. It's nasty. Looks like chicken, tastes like gator. I really think people should stick to more appetizing items, like say...buckeyes. Chocolate and peanut butter. Much better than gator.
