Tony the Foodie
The Hungry Crowd
Food & Wine Magazine sat down with Tony before the London 2012 Olympics to learn a little more about his go-to recipes and favorite vinos.
Think of wrestling in the water. You’re focused in on trying to score, working with teammates while you’re getting roughed up like you wouldn’t believe. You should see the stuff that goes on under the water.
And all the while you’re trying not to die from drowning. I’d put water polo up with any sport in the world.
