The Kitchen

Ever the enthusiastic cook and co-host, Jeff Mauro isn't shy about showing his excitement on The Kitchen, no matter if he's prepping a recipe on set, learning the latest craft project or welcoming a new guest to the party. And when it comes to football season, he's every bit as game for the occasion as he is any other, as he proved during today's all-new Tailgating 2.0 episode.

Take a peek at the photo above. With his head thrown back and a fist raised in the air, Jeff exuded football fervor as he shouted, "Touchdown!" He had just tasted Katie Lee's warming Slow-Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili and was quick to get fans just as hyped as he was for everything else set to go down this week.

Now it's your turn, fans. We're challenging you to write your best caption for this moment by leaving a comment with your idea below. Then check out all the recipes for game-day eats and drinks featured on this morning's show.
