Retired NFL Players Jeff Saturday and Rich Gannon Encourage Fans to Snack on Almonds with the #UltimateBroSnack Sweepstakes

You're in a fantasy league with your bros; you talk shop with your bros; you watch games and eat with your bros; and this year you can compete with your bros by entering California Almonds' "Ultimate Bro Snack Sweepstakes," (enter here) for a chance to win a crucial mid-season consultation and a winning edge in your league -- with retired NFL quarterback and CBS football analyst Rich Gannon. One grand prize winner will not only receive a phone consultation with Gannon to discuss their roster and weigh the pros and cons of trades, but also a $1,000 Party Pack for their next game day party.

"It's important to keep up your energy in the cutthroat world of fantasy football, and opting for nutritious snacks like almonds helps keep you on your toes," says Gannon. "However you snack on game day, it's all about spending time with friends and coming out on top in your fantasy football league!"

Saturday knows a thing or two about tackling hunger with healthy snacking. The recently retired player has lost substantial weight after making a commitment to healthy living by dedicating time to nutritious eating and exercise. A crucial part of his new routine includes daily snacking between meals, including almonds.

"I no longer have to consume the huge amount of calories needed to keep my weight up, compared to when I was a center," says Saturday. "Now, I fill my diet with clean, healthy and convenient options, including adding fruits and vegetables to my meals and snacking on almonds."
