This sporting life

Legendary Baltimore Colts defensive end Gino Marchetti lent his name and elbow-grease to a beloved hamburger franchise, Gino's, now enjoying a successful revivial. But Marchetti wasn't the only Baltimore football giant to put his name on a menu. Johnny Unitas had his Golden Arm and Alan Ameche, who co-founded Gino's with Marchetti, had his name on a separate franchise--- "Meetcha at Ameche's!" Colts coach Don Shula still has his name on a chain of steak houses, and who could forget Ray Lewis' Full Moon Barbecue?
