    It's that time of year again. Every January my food-perverse mind converts professional football teams into dishes as a way to explore great food from around the country.

    Barring a Lockout, Here's Who Your Dallas Cowboys Will Play in August

    ​If the Dallas Cowboys have a training camp this summer, they'll spend it in San Antonio's Alamodome.

    If and When the NFL Returns, Its Returns Will Be Boring

    Safety? Jesus doesn't even need a helmet. ​I grew up watching an NFL with kick-offs from the 40-yard line and goal posts positioned in the end zone, so I cherish my modern-day returns. And I know the league has a new focus on health and safety, but I don't like the proposed rule changes bei ... More >>
