Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus has developed a peculiar offseason hobby for an NFL player this summer: food blogging.

McManus posted a series of stories on the Broncos’ official website each week for the last two months. The series, which included everything from mussels at Guard and Grace to sushi garnished with Pop Rocks and jalapeños at TAG, concluded last week.

McManus wrote on the Broncos’ website that he got into food blogging when he and newlywed wife, Nadia, decided to have date nights every Friday at different Denver restaurants.

“Grouper is another one of my favorite dishes to order whenever I have a chance and without a doubt, Humboldt exceeded my expectations,” McManus wrote in his week six blog. “With a crispy exterior that was marinated with a tomato basil vinaigrette, this dish is now tops on my all-time list of seafood entrees.”
