Andy Reid: Competitor on professional barbecue circuit
Arrowhead Stadium, the home of the Kansas City Chiefs, is known for its fantastic tailgating scene on game days, and particularly for the KC-style barbecue. That’s where Andy Reid, as not-the-Chiefs-head-coach, honed his pitmaster stylings sharply enough to take his show on the road, becoming a fixture on the nation’s competition barbecue circuit.
Reid’s Grandpa BBQ Crew has taken second place in pork shoulder and third in ribs at the acclaimed Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest. He’s won second place in ribs at Kansas City’s own American Royal World Series of Barbecue.
Reid’s group even tried their hand at Texas brisket at the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest in Houston and came in a respectable fifth, given their pork-centric team focus. His next goal? To Beat Bobby Flay in his signature category: A pristine pulled pork sandwich.
Anthony Lynn: Attorney
Anthony Lynn just has the look of an attorney, a capable and high-priced private attorney who had no trouble passing the bar on the first try. He never has to advertise on television that he “doesn’t get paid until we get money for you!” because he always wins. Opposing counsel fears trying cases upon which Lynn is involved. And, unsurprisingly, his clients are always happy.
Attorney may not be the most exciting of jobs an NFL coach can have if not coaching an NFL team. But it can certainly be as lucrative and with a lot more career security than being in charge of the Los Angeles Chargers. And, as an attorney, Lynn has answers to questions no one else thought to even ask; as a head coach, there are far more questions than answers on a seemingly hourly basis. There’s far less stress in practicing law.
