Redskins Alum Dave Butz Faced Off Against a Peanut Butter Burger on SI’s Tailgate Tour
When former Purdue star Dave Butz won Super Bowl XXII as a member of the Redskins, he reportedly yelled out to the crowd, “We came, we saw, we kicked their butz.” On the second stop of SI’s Tailgate Tour, at his alma mater Purdue, Butz could make no similar pronouncement, as he lost a burger cooking contest to Greg Ehresman, owner of West Lafayette’s Triple XXX Family Restaurant. Butz, a tailgate traditionalist, scoffed at Ehresman’s secret ingredient, peanut butter, but 3 out of 5 judges disagreed.
The Tailgate Tour is stopping in Corvallis, Oregon next, for the September 28 Colorado/Oregon State game. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, whose last name does not so easily lend itself to juvenile puns, will be stopping in, along with chef Steven Redzikowski of Oak at fourteenth in Boulder.
