superbowl sunday!!!

dear emily,

i have the super bowl menu planned: hans' favorite seven layer
dip, crab stuffed mushrooms, chicken wings, chips with salsa
and guacamole, barbecue meatballs, chips and onion dip, pizza
with pepperoni, onions, peppers, and seven cheeses, chips with
sour cream shrimp dip, brownies, and milky way bars.

groucho marx was a huge football fan and encouraged a player
with, "my boy, get in there and play like you did the last game!
i've got five dollars on the other team."

my favorite part is listening to hans and my boys.
hans:  "that offensive lineman can guard AND tackle."
isaac:  "and how about his footwork and pass protection?"
max:   "can you believe these calls?"
isaac:  "the ref needs glasses!"
hans:   "oh my gosh, oh my gosh...what was the coach thinking
            about?  there's too much time left..."

speaking of coaches, one shouted at his team, "ok, you guys,
line up alphabetically by height!"

joe theismann understood that "nobody in football should be
called a genius.  a genius is a guy like norman einstein."

i really only watch the game to humor hans and see the
commercials.  the best one featured frogs who ribbited,
"bud - wei - ser." the runners up were the e-trade babies
and talking t shirt stains.

this year tim tebow is included in a commercial which tells the
story that his mom almost aborted him.  it's super controversial,
although, i'm not sure who is left to be offended when we've
seen a scandalously clad britney spears selling pepsi and janet
jackson disrobe during half-time.

my personal inspiration is george rogers, who bragged, "i want
to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first."


"a merry heart is good medicine."  proverbs 17:22

ps.  the menu was a little joke.  hans will be lucky to get a pbj
sandwich. :)

Ahhh yes, Super Bowel Sunday! ,-) I'm not as into it as I was, when "Little Bro" Eli was playing. ,-) But of course, I do love "Big Bro" Peyton. Such nice guys!

We have people coming over. Husband will probably make his Crock Pot Ribs. Others bring Chili and Mac & Cheese, etc. I have to get usable paper plates, because I don't have enough dishes, to handle a crowd. :-)

Though I'm not one bit into the Super Bowl, I can certainly appreciate the food and the bonding between the guys (gals, too, I suppose). Your menu sounds delish!

Deborah Ann said...

I'll be watching the game, but that menu will sure be hard to beat! Think I'll enjoy the food even more than the game...

oh dear, i feel terrible! i keep forgetting what amazing cooks you all

my close friends and family will know that poor hans will get
maybe one thing from that caesar's palace buffet.

it is heartwarming to think that someone really imagines i could pull
that off!

Adored some of these Super Bowl quips and plan to share them with my husband & sons who are huge fans and have all sorts of plans for game watching.

Natasha said...

I am not a football fan but the American football is getting HUGE over here in OZ. I'm sure that my hubby will be watching the repeat the next day so I will be thinking of you all while he is watching it.

Best wishes, Natasha.

You have a good point there with how else can we be offended in those ads. I don;t care about either team so doubt I will watch it. Can;t believe the Who are back yet again. I find it funny how many Brit bands do the Superbowl halftime show.


BTw, love the theme of your blog here. Clever.

Oh YUM! Everything "on the menu" sounds fabulous - mouthwatering.

Hee hee hee.....!!! I will have to repeat those to our friends this Sunday!
I'm not a huge fan of the BIG game, but I am a big fan of my beloved, so we are going to some friend's home to watch. They are in charge of the goodies this year!
I will, however, be waiting to see the Tim Tebow commercial. I am hoping it WILL make a big stir in the media just as the J.Jackson stunt did. Maybe it will reach more people that way? I pray so!
Enjoy your festivities this week-end!

Thanks for stopping by Town and Country Mom. I hope it helps to know that I was terrified the first time I went to Peru--this was our second trip. If you're meant to go, God will make it clear to you. If not, then please don't feel ashamed for staying home and praying! That's vital! Now, speaking of feeling ashamed, I was bowled over when I read your Super Bowl menu--I am so relieved to know that was a joke! Almost as funny as George Rogers!
