Hungry Todd Rungy
Last month, Hops & Grain brewery announced that it was sponsoring Austin-based pro triathlete Kelly Williamson. It's all about balance, you see, and nothing complements intensive training for running, biking, and swimming long distances like a cold, locally crafted brew. But why should Williamson get all the sponsorship glory? Austin is teeming with athletes ready to slap on a logo or two. We implore the Austin food scene to follow H&G's fine example.
Hungry Todd Rungy: Casa de Luz

Austin Outlaws: Bearded Brothers energy bars
The members of Austin's only women's professional football team can't grow beards, and need a lot of energy. This makes perfect sense.
Texas Shade: Cheer Up Charlies
Where else would Texas' two professional dodgeball teams congregate to read each other?
Chad Byers: Skull & Cakebones
Sure, this ripped vegan bodybuilder probably hasn't had a cupcake in a decade. But should he ever decide to indulge, he could be the poster boy for having your vegan cake and eating it, too.
Austin Blacks: laV
Nothing says "French country fare," "sophistication," and "premier wine destination" like professional rugby.
Ultimate Players League of Austin (Ultimate Frisbee): Happy Hemp
Texas Rollergirls: John Mueller Meat Company
Because one good elbow to the ribs deserves another. (Let the Twitter war begin!)
CLAWstin (Austin's Collective of Lady Arm Wrestlers): Russian House
Is it so wrong to cultivate Cold War nostalgia via the underground sport of ladies' arm wrestling? We'd love to see "Ivanka Drago" with the motto "I must break you" emblazoned on the back of her Russian House-branded robe.
