Kick-Offs & Recaps

The Fantasy line-up is set.  The jersey perfectly rumpled.  The beer cold.  The chips and dip aplenty.  Dish with clear line of sight of the southern sky – for maximum Sunday ticket reception.

It’s here dear friends.  The day of days… NFL FOOTBALL!!!

In football, as in life, we can’t know where we’re going, until we look at where we’ve been.  This year, Touchdown Thursday promises to bring you the best of the best in drinks, dips, desserts, meat, and everything in between for your perfect tail-gaiting/football fare.

Tomorrow marks my official kick-off, but since the NFL didn’t seem to care that I have a schedule to keep, I’m using today to take a trip down memory lane, a look-back at last year’s delicious treats.
