That means whether you’re tailgating with friends, happily watching the game from your couch or taking in the coin toss in real life, you’re bound to be well fed. (Scaling Mount Everest? Reader’s choice.)
Talk about a touchdown.

With less than two weeks to go, fans across the country are gearing up for Super Bowl LVII: Chiefs vs Eagles. Philly center Jason Kelce and Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce will be the first brothers to play each other in the Super Bowl, adding to the palpable excitement ahead of the big game.
