All-Pro Bowl NFL player Ovie Mughelli shares tips for a festive and fun tailgate

The Secret to Tailgating success

Football season is BACK! Or should we say, tailgating season is back! Between watch parties and tailgates, we’re sharing tips and recipes that can help make this football season a success.

Former NFL All-Pro Bowl NFL player and TV analyst Ovie Mughelli joined “Life.Style.Live!” to share the recipe for football fun for 2023. Ovie was a fullback for the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens. His newest goal: to be an all pro tailgating guru!

One item that Ovie says should be on every tailgating menu is Zatarain’s smoked sausage! They have sausage flavors like Andouille, Cajun style, and blackened seasoned. The sausage can be used in dishes like jambalaya or a rice mix. Versatile, flavorful, and expertly seasoned, these sausages are perfect for grilling. 

In addition to food, the best way to enjoy the game is to have a big television! Roku has an award-winning 4k 65 inch television equipped with a Roku operating system. You can access the sports experience on Roku’s home screen menu to find your favorite sports leagues. You can connect the television to the Roku wireless soundbar and satellite speakers for immersive gameday sound!

At the tailgate, you’ll also want to make sure everyone has their electronic devices fully charged. Yoshino is your power solution for everyday life and game day alike. The Yoshino B2000 can be used indoors and outdoors to power devices like grills, coolers, televisions, phones, and more!

Oftentimes as a tailgate host you want to make things as easy as possible. Chili’s can help you save time by either stopping in for lunch or dinner, or taking food to go! Between wings, margaritas, and beer specials, Chili’s is fueling football fans across the country. The restaurant chain is offering unmatched happy hour deals and BOGO bonus wings all day on Mondays.
