There are three words to describe the Big Game this year – WHAT A GAME. Every player’s pure passion for the game was visible on the field. That passion is lifelong for Hall of Fame Quarterback and Nutrisystem brand ambassador, Dan Marino.

Each year, in addition to reliving a career of football moments, Dan joins Nutrisystem on the ground in advance of the big game to talk Super Monday, the largest diet decision day for men. Dan joined as a Nutrisystem ambassador 10 years ago and lost 22 pounds on the program.

Right by his side as Dan hops from media interview to media interview is Nutrisystem’s Stacie Mullen. Stacie works closely with all of Nutrisystem’s ambassadors across myriad activities, including this annual event with Dan. According to Stacie, “it’s awesome to hear Dan talk about his greatest passion– football. Dan is as respected as they come and his enthusiasm for the game is always evident.” And, the fans that approach Dan at this event are just thrilled to meet him. “Dan’s dedication to making sure an autograph is given to a child or a quick picture is taken with fans is so special. This year was no different. Dan gifted 13 balls (his number) to lucky fans throughout the week in honor of Nutrisystem’s new program LEAN 13,” she added.

Over the years, our activities have grown and move at an even faster pace. This year was our biggest year yet, with multiple days and hours of national television and radio interviews and Stacie and team were by his side for each and every one. We’d say this past week was a home run, but in this case, we’ll call it touchdown.
