Jerod Mayo Mayo

Sometimes while shopping at the local "Shaw's" supermarket in addition to daydreaming about what it would be like to own this supermarket chain (same last name as me); I go over to the "discounted clearance section" and look over the "reduced groceries" they have in a small area near the back of the store. I recently spied this bottle of "Jerod's All Pro Bruisin' Bacon Mayo" and thought I would give it a try as it would maybe give the New England Patriot's National  Football League football team some good luck as I did purchase this mayo prior to the big game. Now, I'm not saying that the Patriots won only because I purchased this mayo but it probably didn't hurt their victory chances in their 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Notice the number "51" on Jerod Mayo's jersey on his mayo bottle. If you add up the total score of the super bowl game you get "52" which is just one number higher than his "51" jersey.

Jerod Mayo is a linebacker with the New England Patriots who was injured on October 16,2014 while playing against the Buffalo Bills. This All-Pro linebacker so far has 756 tackles throughout his career. I don't know how many times Mr Mayo has been held by the offensive opponents over the years but I always enjoy when the NFL official announces the the penalty when they announce "Holding offence, Holding Mayo" ten yard penalty".

As far as the mayo itself, I like it. Anything with bacon flavor is usually good in my book. I'm not sure though if Jerod Mayo makes all this mayo himself or if he has his wife and family help him. It is good though that he has found something to do with his time while recovering from his injury and I hope he doesn't slip on any of the mayo and further hurt himself.
