Here’s a review of the questions:
- The origins of “Cincinnati Chili” are vast and varied. However, it is widely known that immigrants from what country were the originators of what we now eat every day in Cincinnati and the world over?
- Who wrote the theme song for the TV show, “WKRP in Cincinnati?”
- Which World Series champion baseball superstar played high school baseball at Cincinnati’s Sycamore High School and college ball at the University of Cincinnati?
Here are the answers:
- Macedonia. Macedonian brothers John and Tom Kiradjieff created Cincinnati chili in 1922 at the Empress Restaurant. Their unique recipe included Middle Eastern spices and was originally known as “Spaghetti Chili.” Three, Four and Five-way versions soon followed and the rest is chili history!
- The theme song was written by the composer Tom Wells, with lyrics by the show’s creator Hugh Wilson. Orchestrations were added by Jim Ellis, and it was sung by Steve Carlisle.
- Kevin Youkilis. “Youk” was born in 1979 and drafted by the Red Sox in 2001. He played for the Boston Red Sox from 2004 to 2011 and was a huge part of the Sox’s historic 2004 World Series victory, their first since 1918. In 2017, Youkilis had his school jersey number retired at Sycamore High School.
