Before we move on to new business, I would like to remind you of one of my recent blog posts. I called it Mo Money, No Problems, and I discussed the NFL expanding the regular season as a means to […]
The Detroit Lions are off to an 0 – 3 start which, in case you’re wondering, is not exactly an uncommon occurrence. As I continue to compile material for my 21 Sundays of Fantastic Football Food cookbook, I have a […]
So I think I’ve figured it out. For years, the NFL has been making noise about expanding the regular season from sixteen games to maybe forty or so. Okay, they say eighteen but we know that would only be a […]
