On a conference call Wednesday with reporters ahead of the Colts‘ face-off with the Tennessee Titans, Chuck Pagano had a hot take.

At some point, the topic of Thanksgiving was brought up – specifically, Thanksgiving food. The Colts head coach, who has Italian roots, at one point during the timely discussion told reporters that his go-to Thanksgiving entree is spaghetti and meatballs.

Like a filling, traditional Thanksgiving meal, that didn‘t sit well with some people. Folks on Twitter, who presumably believe Thanksgiving food should consist of the average turkey, stuffing, potatoes and other items, had a lot to say about the revelation.
