Jeff Zgonina has found his: the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. “My goal is to win Westminster,” says Mr. Zgonina, who has a Super Bowl ring on his finger. “And not just best in breed. Best in show. To me, that’s the Super Bowl.”
Mr. Zgonina played pro football for 17 seasons, through 2009, collecting his Super Bowl ring as a defensive tackle for the 1999 St. Louis Rams. Now, he and his Neapolitan mastiff, Nook, travel in a Ford F-350 pickup to dog shows across the country.
