All of us here at the Real Football Network are excited to be escaping to the Margaritaville state of mind every Saturday to bring you a unique new content feature called Margaritaville Football. As Jimmy Buffett’s tour traveled across the country this year, production coordinator Heikki Larsen sat down with football personalities to talk sports, music, living the Margaritaville lifestyle and more.
We kicked things off earlier this season with former Super Bowl champion coach and current ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden. Since then, we’ve had a veritable who’s who of NFL and college football elites including JJ Watt, Cris Collinsworth, Urban Meyer, Tennessee Titans Mike Mularkey and Taylor Lewan, Bengals OL coach Paul Alexander, Falcons Head Coach Dan Quinn, and most recently, Broncos great Tom Nalen (you can link to ALL the podcasts below). This week, Heikki sits down with longtime NFL Sports Illustrated writer and insider, and author of the Monday Morning Quarterback column and website, Peter King.
Peter has been around the NFL for decades and talked to Heikki about the NFL Combine and the social aspect of the coaches and scouts all being together in Indianapolis. He also talked about the value to a media member in just sitting down and having a beer with a coach in a more relaxed setting like the Combine. The guys got into Peter’s tastes in music (the Beatles came to America when he was 7), including Springsteen, U2, and Taylor Swift (yes, he admitted that!), and seeing Jimmy Buffett at the post-game victory party after the New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl! Peter told Heikki that he thinks the Super Bowl will be played in Nashville sooner than later, he told a story of doing a doobie with the Doobies, interviewing Brett Favre in the stairwell of the Fairview Hotel after winning the Super Bowl, eating a healthy cheeseburger, and his favorite beverage…a landshark lager! To hear the whole story, listen to the podcast!
