Based on title alone, you might be led to believe 21 Sundays of Fantastic Football Food is nothing more than a carefully selected collection of game day recipes. There would be nothing wrong with that, but this volume is on a far grander scale.
Do you remember when former Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson broke his arm in a hapless attempt to save a pizza? How about that time former Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Jeff Reed beat up a towel dispenser just because he couldn’t dry his hands?
Professional football players, coaches, owners, general managers and officials have, over the years, done some truly remarkable things. Author, foodie and professed football fanatic Michael Sova takes a look back at some of their more memorable, entertaining and often comical exploits. He serves up some pretty amazing grub too: perfect for any tailgate party, game day gathering, or lazy Sunday in front of the television.
As you kick back with a delicious Brunch Burger, some Super Supreme Mucho Macho Nachos, Over Stuffed Couch Potatoes or a big bowl of Mexican Corn Dip, you can also have a laugh at the good natured expense of those who play the game we all love so much. Spoiler alert—the term “butt fumble” will come up at least once.
Author of the suspense novels Parlor City Paradise and A Shot at Redemption, Michael Sova is back with his tastiest, most nourishing and most… unusual work to date. 21 Sundays of Fantastic Football Food: Celebrating the Foods and Follies of Professional Football will be available on Amazon in paperback and for Kindle.
