Andy Slater hosts the popular "Andy Slater Show" from noon to 3 p.m. weekdays on 640AM WFTL Radio, where he's known for interviewing giants in sports. Andy has spoken with some of the greats, including Don King, Andre Dawson, Frank Robinson, Carlos Delgado, Adam Dunn, Frank Francisco and even O.J. Simpson!
When he's not talking about sports on the air, he's either eating somewhere or watching a game -- and on Facebook to tell all about it. Short Order asked Andy where he was watching the Super Bowl and he surprised us by saying he was going to watch it at home. Then he explained his plans for the ultimate Super Bowl party, with the ultimate menu to go with it.
By picking up the best wings, ribs, stone crabs and potato skins from his favorite Miami restaurants, Andy has created a fantasy menu for his party. Bonus points for his real reason to watch at home, "If my team loses, I just have to walk 30 yards to crash in my bed". Add some beer and go!
