Picture of Spicy Sweet Potato Fritters (Dragon Eggs)



Now I don't know much about football, but even I have learned that it is a mistake to just assume that the team with the most dragons will win.  It seems logical, right?  But seriously, it is way more complicated than that!  You really want to take into account  the opponent’s mystical defenses and definitely don’t underestimate their wizard’s ability to cast Interception…

Fantasy Football players as well as those reality-based fans will enjoy these sweet and spicy snacks while they debate strategy.

Enjoy the game!
