Local Pizza Chain's Pierre Garcon Campaign Has Not Borne Fruit




    Washington athletes and local commercials are a lot like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups: two great tastes that taste great together. Okay, maybe not.

    Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon, however, is working with something a little more saucy.

    Local pizza chain Paisano's -- conveniently located all over Northern Virginia -- is featuring Garcon in a season-long promotion. Whenever Garcon scores a touchdown, buy one pizza the following day and get the second one "on Pierre." 

    That sounds delicious, but unfortunately for Garcon and Paisano's, that deal has not borne fruit (for those of you who make fun of people that like fruit on pizza, tomato is also a fruit, so take that). Garcon has one touchdown this season -- from all the way back in Week 1 -- and has been suffering from a nagging foot injury that has held him to just three games.

    If only Bruce Boudreau was still here. He'd be perfect.
