The SuperBowl

Steelers vs Cardinals. Let's face it, the Superbowl is all about 3 things... family, friends & food. This year Paul went all out with his food planning and along with our shredded beef nachos & fresh salsa, we added quesadilla's, chips & dips, bacon wrapped water chestnuts with bbq sauce, cupcakes & cookies and more. Everyone brought something... now no cooking for a week. We made enough food for a small country.

Truth be told, family & friends, food and commercials are the best part... the game is somewhat not relevant to me. Players jump from team to team, it's hard to feel connected to them and then they whine about not getting paid enough, which I find offensive. To entertain myself I have to offer some occasional football lingo... What a great hand off! I love it when they help each other up! He ran up the center and put that baby to bed! Ash & Larry are really the only ones that know genuine football lingo. Ashlee was sure to let me know that I will not be invited next year... a hard thing to propose as it will probably be at our place. I am sure she will bring duct tape.

For some people it's about football, for you, it's about family. I was actually sitting on the edge of my seat the last several minutes of the game. Good game, even though my team lost. Favorite commercial? Mr and Mrs potato head driving down the highway. I got a chuckle out of that one.

I was hoping AZ would win. My favorite commercials?
Doritos with snow globe and the repeating new job commercial...
We were disappointed in most of them. They were lame and we didn't get them.
