#GameforBasketball

I absolutely love eating a big bowl of chili while cheering on my favorite college basketball teams, especially during the month of March. The school rivalries and red-hot games inspire me to relive my glory days on the court. I have to admit, I have been known to occasionally frequently overeat and periodically routinely overexert myself. What can I say? I’m a good-time glutton.

Advil at Walmart #GameForBasketball

Don’t Let Pain Sideline You, Be #GameForBasketball

It’s a good idea to stock up on great Pfizer products, such as Advil, at Walmart. I like having it on hand so I am ready for anything. When I push myself too hard on the court, Advil allows me to enjoy the moments without being hindered by aches and pain. We all want that, right? Walmart is the best place to get everything I need to make the basketball watching – and playing – season a pleasurable one. Nothing’s stronger, longer lasting or better on your tough aches and pains than Advil*. Today, I am pleased to share an Advil coupon with you for extra savings.

Lentil Chili Recipe, No Matter What Team You Play For

Good food, good company, and good basketball naturally go together. That makes game day a great day to flex my cooking muscles. I have been trying to prepare meals more often, but I run the risk of committing a foul in the kitchen. You see, I am a vegetarian while my Dear Wife (and head cheerleader) indulges her carnivorous cravings. Fear not, for this versatile lentil chili recipe can be easily transformed from vegetarian fare to a meat-filled creation. I guess that’s why I call it the Double Dribbler!
