After cutting his teeth on the national slam poetry scene, he’s gone on to write and produce 15 one-man shows and authored “The Y’at Dictionary” and “Secret New Orleans,” addressing fringe elements of local dialect and history. His latest book on the NFL, “The Most Important League in the World,” inspired by his childhood as the son of an NFL lineman, covers a wide swath of the odd and unusual history of the league. Tonight Chris squares up with the Troubled Men for a head-to-head matchup, and nothing’s out of bounds.
