Let's get real for a moment ladies, what do we enjoy most about the Super Bowl? That's correct, the chips, dip and commercials!
MSN went straight to the source to find out what some of the NFL's finest chow down on when they're not on the field. Turns out that their favorite dishes come straight from the best chefs in their hometown -- their moms.
Jerome "The Bus" Bettis and Mom Gladys Bettis
After winning Super Bowl XL, Jerome Bettis retired from the Pittsburgh Steelers. One of the team's most-loved players, The Bus' mom Gladys says, "[Jerome] would call me up and say, 'Mom, I'm coming home for Thanksgiving and bringing the guys with me." For Thanksgiving and all Super Bowl parties Gladys prepares her famous Sweet Potato Pie.
