The Super Bowl is coming, the Super Bowl is coming! Ok, so this is the second time that I have lived in a city that has hosted the Super Bowl. The last time was in Detroit in 2005. I did not get to enjoy much of the festivities that time around, because I was working for REI and we had a to work a huge snowshoe event that weekend…Boo! So this time I plan on getting into some fun Super Bowl shenanigans. We of course don’t have tickets to the actual game, which I am secretly kind of glad about. The stadium for the Super Bowl is an open-air stadium and everyone is going to freeze! However, I do plan on going down to Bryant Park where all of the festivities are happening just to check it out and to get into the spirit.
Ok, so I have a confession. I am not really a huge football fan…Shhhhhhh! Derika on the other hand is a huge fan, so we do spend some of our weekends watching the football. I have to say that I am starting to enjoy it and I am finally starting to pick up some of the rules. I know about 5 players names in the NFL and I pick my favorite players the same way that I pick out a new bottle of wine. When I am wine shopping and I have no idea what I what, I usually pick a style and then pick out a couple of bottles based off of which labels catch my eye. The same goes for my football players. If you have a name like Lovey or OchoCinco…I will like you. If their helmet or any part of their uniform sparkles…I will like you. If the player has epic flowing locks that flow in the breeze as they run down the field…I will like you. If your fans throw Skittles at you as a form of celebration…I will like you. If your name is easy and simple to remember or if there are two of you (Manning)…I will like you. If you do a neat little dance after you sack the quarterback or score all of the points…I will like you.
While I am watching the football, I am usually crafting until I hear one of my favorite names. I usually miss all of the touchdowns and all of the good plays because I am crafting, which annoys Derika a smidge…good thing she likes me. 🙂 My theory is that if you are scoring all the points and making all of the good plays, they will replay it 176 times and I will get to see it and craft at the same time…Winning!
Right about now I bet you are wondering why in the heck I am even excited about the Super Bowl. Well, here are my reasons…This Super Bowl is spotlighting one of my favorite candies! Yay!
I absolute love love love the Super Bowl commercials. I am usually the one taking a bathroom break during the game and will be wondering why you are in the bathroom during the commercials…The best part of the Super Bowl! Here is one of my favorite commercials…
Besides the Skittles and the great commercials…I of course love all of the snacks! Yay for snacks! Since I have been scheming about what I am going to make in regards to snacks for this weekend. I thought this would be a great time to go through my blog and pull out some of the things that I have made over the past year that would be a great Super Bowl snack. I hope you enjoy my selections! Have a great weekend and try not to eat too many Skittles. 🙂
