Saturday has won and lost Super Bowls, and he says if you lose, you retreat to your hotel room and order room service. Because "you don't want to hang around after a loss." Ouch. Here's what the winners eat:
- A massive buffet provided by the team (the losers have one too, but players don't typically attend)
- Anything the players want at an open bar back in the team hotel's "celebration suite"
If players aren't feeling the buffet, they can also hit up a steakhouse near the stadium. After regular season wins, Saturday would roll with 15-20 friends and family members to a local wings joint. He'd order "hundreds of wings" of all types -- hot, Asian, whatever they had. When he used to play in Green Bay, he'd pair that chicken with a Spotted Cow from New Glarus.
Win or lose, the NFL's elite athletes will be stuffing their faces somewhere in Phoenix.
