Vikings offensive tackle Matt Kalil and his father Frank are opening a Pioelogy Pizza franchise, which is based out of Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., in Mankato. The Kalils purchased Minnesota franchise rights for the pizza restaurant and have some big plans – putting a positive spin on the “business” side of being a player in the spotlight of the National Football League.

The franchise serves pizza in a style used by several other fast-food restaurants – cafeteria-style dining where one picks and chooses what they want rather than ordering a pizza for a group. Pieology Pizza has been able to accomplish such a business because they roll out 800-degree ovens and, by the time you settle up with the cashier, you’re pie is ready to roll out. Much like a sub shop, customers can select their own toppings and keep the line moving. Kalil’s offensive line teammates will be sure to test the limits of how much meat and/or cheese can be on one pizza and test the heating capacity of the oven.

The Mankato pizzeria will be one of three that will launch this spring. Locations in Maple Grove and the St. Paul suburb of Highland Park are also coming. Plans are in place to include future franchises in downtown Minneapolis and near the Vikings training facility in Winter Park.

Former Bills receiver Andre Reed knows who he wants to present him for induction in the Pro Football Hall of Fame: His Hall of Fame coach, Marv Levy. Reed was on Levy’s team for all 12 of Levy’s seasons as the head coach of the Bills.

Reed: “Marv, I love you, man. We were like family, and we know we wouldn’t be where we are without each other.”

Levy: “I am complimented and I am really looking forward to that weekend.”

The offseason shake-up continues in Cleveland.

The Browns on Tuesday announced that CEO Joe Banner and general manager Michael Lombardi are leaving the organization.

What the? I'm glad I'm not a Browns fan or live in Cleveland. That franchise is embarrassing with some of the moves they've made over the past few years. I don't get this one at all. It's like they and Miami are competing for the most head-scratching organization in the NFL.

I was just watching the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary on how ~70% of NFL players are broke within a few years of retirement, and part of the problem is bad investments in family-run businesses, especially bars and restaurants.

Not saying that this particular business venture is a bad one or anything...

I was just about to chime in with this.
Love money...

Going to be tough to get all the college kids at MSU to switch from Toppers to anything else after a late night out! Great pizza already there.

Mesa Pizza is in Dinkytown! Khalil is planning to put his pizza place in Mankato.

EDIT: but yes Mesa Pizza is the bomb.com but trying to get a pizza at Mesa on homecoming you plan on waiting for two hours. might as well bring a keg with a couple of bros and wait for your slice!

Clearly you guys haven't had good college pizza, come to Bloomington, Indiana and taste some delicious, nationally recognized, damn good pizza!

(I go to IU)

Very Happy
And for only $10.99, a favorite of mine on weekend nights for obvious reasons (and it comes with a 2 liter)...I present the Munchie Madness deal

I don't see why they wouldn't. Terrence Williams has made him obsolete.

I would mind bringing him in on an incentive based deal.
