PIEremiership - Pierate's Football Pie League kicks off!
|Our new logo to celebrate the re-launch of our football pie article!|
It will be of no sur-pies to our regular pie blog readers that we have eaten a pie or two at football grounds up and down the country! In fact, we were delighted to be invited as VIPs (Very Important Pie Eaters) to Morecambe FC in January 2014 to rate their pies (and do a 5 minute interview for their website!) and also got special treatment and a free pie at The Emirates Stadium with Delaware North Companies UK. But really, we've only just started!
That's why the Pierateers are making a new #PiePledge to visit even more football grounds this season - and quite obviously eat and rate a pie at each one we do!
Sure, you may be thinking hasn't someone already done the 'pie at every ground' thing? - and in part, you would be right. But while Tom Dickinson had a lot of success and press coverage for his "92 pies" idea - including a book which we have rated on the 7 Cs - he will be the first to admit he didn't actually rate the pies very much. In fact, they hardly get rated or even mentioned at all in the book! We at Pierate consider this a missed opPIEtunity and are set to put the pies to the 7 Cs test - attempting to rate as many football pies as we can!
It may take a while to rate them all - we certainly can't manage it in a season (unless someone sponsors us enough to mean we can quit our day jobs!) - but we hope to rate as many football pies as we can!

You'll be able to see the results of our football pie endevours by visiting our "PIEremiership: Pierate's Football Pie League" article, which is now available as a clickable link on the right hand side of the site if you're viewing Pierate on your desktop or selecting the menu on your mobile phone view!
And of course we'd love to hear from you - the pie fans - who have no doubt also enjoyed (or detested) a pie at football grounds up and down the country! Leave a comment in the box below if you have a pie to suggest we rate or avoid!
Here's to a great 2014/15 season, both on the pitch and (more importantly) in the pie kitchen!
