Skylines: Reds at Phillies Game Thread, May 17, 2013

Didn't we do this pretty recently?

The stereotypical thing that you hear announcers talk about when they visit Cincinnati is skyline chili. Skyline chili, for those of us who do not live in the wilds of Ohio, is basically particularly spiced chili on pasta smothered with cheese. It's weird, but frankly, how far off is chili from marinara sauce?

Eh, I guess it's pretty far off. Still, it must be just as annoying for the Cincinnatians to hear about skyline chili every ESPN broadcast as it is for us to hear about cheesesteaks. Let's flip the script and, instead, discuss Cincinnatus, the Roman dictator who gave up his power to become a farmer. Frankly, he seems a bit like Joey Votto meets Chase Utley to me; I bet Cincinnatus could take a walk and hit the three run homer on command.

Discuss famous Roman leaders and their baseball prowess below.
