Garlic Jim’s to award high school football teams

Are you ready for some triple overtime football? Garlic Jim’s is. The Pacific Northwest gourmet pizza company plans to give away its limited time Triple Pepperoni Smackdown pizzas to any high school in the Seattle area whose football team wins in triple overtime.

While rare, triple overtime high school football games are known to happen every year. Two Texas teams made history in 2010 when they played 12 overtime sessions to decide a game. It happened last year in the state playoffs when Seattle’s O’Dea beat Olympia-based Capital 19 to 16 in triple overtime.

It’s quite easy: Any high school football team in and around Kirkland and Seattle that prevails in a triple overtime game receives complimentary pizza at their next home game.

And not just any ordinary pizza — the high school will receive servings of the Triple Pepperoni Smackdown, which combines three layers of oozy cheese and three distinct pepperonis, including a diced pepperoni on the top that cooks up crispy-crunchy and puts the exclamation point on the Smackdown pizza.

For information, contact the Kirkland Garlic Jim’s, located at 8431 122nd Ave. N.E., Kirkland, at (425) 822-8881.
