“For pregame, it’s always pasta and chicken.”


 

Marc Pelosi

“Before the games I definitely like to eat some pasta. I then like to keep it lean and light with chicken and some sort of vegetable. Asparagus is my favorite.”

Tommy Thompson

“I keep it really simple with chicken and pasta. I always throw some red pepper flakes on there as well.”
