The underrated dish
This one may come as a surprise to some, but the mashed potatoes are Rocco Grimaldi. Why? Because he brings more to the team than what may show up in the stat box.
Mashed potatoes are, in this writer’s opinion, very underrated. There are so many variations. Maybe you like them straight up, just a little salt and pepper, maybe a little butter. Maybe you like to add a little cheese to them, because cheese makes everything better. Regardless of how you take your mashed potatoes, they are an unsung hero of the meal.
That’s Grimaldi. He may not lead in goals or assists, but he grinds it out every game. You would be hard pressed to find a player who approaches the game with the same level of enthusiasm as he does. He’s versatile and shows up. No matter how the game may be going, you can count on him to bring tenacity and energy to whatever line he’s on. As Deadpool would say, “Maximum Effort”. The same way Rocco boosts morale of the team with his under-appreciated effort, mashed potatoes do the same for a Thanksgiving feast.
