Super BowL: Gooooooo Giants!

That’s sooooooo me. Ha.flirt1.gif

All you have to do is flip on the tube and put out some chips, right? Sure, if you don’t mind watching the Big Game by your lonesome. Here’s how to make your party one your friends will never avoid … or forget.
How to Throw the Perfect Super Bowl Party

Essential 1: The Tube
If you’ve been looking to upgrade that outdated TV, now is the perfect time, since even a 52-point Patriots drubbing looks great in big-screen HD. Want to watch the players in life-size proportions but not ready to shell out big bucks? Consider a projector….

Essential 2: The Theater
There’s undoubtedly a side of you (or your spouse) that will be psyched to make cute decorations, cleverly color-coded to one or both of the teams participating in this year’s game. Find that side of you, drag it out back, and shoot it like a rabid dog. This is the Super Bowl.bitelip.gif

The only decorating allowed is moving all the furniture closer to the TV, stashing all the breakables, and strategically placing rolls of paper towels to keep damage to a minimum.

Essential 3: The People
This isn’t a formal dinner party, so don’t limit your guest list: The surest death sentence for your shindig is not having enough people to get a noise complaint from your cranky neighbor…biggrin.gif

Make sure to invite at least one male friend who knows absolutely nothing about football. Just trust us on this one. At some point in the doldrums of a late third quarter coach’s challenge, his completely inane questions about holding penalties, blitz packages, or why the players all hug before every play will be the highlight of the whole party.

Essential 4: The Grub
Keep your main course simple and handheld (think burgers, pizza, sausages) and save it for the guaranteed worst part of the entire broadcast: the halftime show. As for drinks, cocktails and a Super Bowl party fit together like diabetics and a Twinkie factory — there’s no acceptable beverage but beer (the only nondrinkers in the room should be pregnant). chef.gif

Essential 5: The Gamblingmoney11.gif
As much as we all wish otherwise, the game is inevitably an overhyped blowout that doesn’t measure up to the multimillion-dollar advertisements supporting it. To keep things interesting, you need money on the line, either by simply betting on who’ll win or by setting up a more elaborate pool.

Essential 6: Cleaning Up
Yeah, have fun with that. drunk1.gif

Goooooooooo Giants! heh

Ah Football: So, what’s the good. What’s the bad sweet friends?

I’ll start.

The Bad.
Relegating women to se-x selling, demeaning “cheerleaders”?…Shame on a culture that continues to legitimize objectification of womens’ bodies.Pfft.

The extremo fanaticism.

Poorly behaved fans cussin and spillin bear on unsuspecting fellow fans. Boo.

The oftentimes uncontrollable gambling.

The violence. Ouch.

It’s ability to turn totally functional dudes into complete androids during Football season. Heh.

The Good.
The all American, good , clean fun. (without taking into account the dementia many players suffer later in life..oh wait…that’s bad..oops)

The ticket out of poverty for the gifted players that are “discovered.”

The unity of bonded together neighbors and perfect strangers.

And………Last but not least: The excuse for the Super Bowl Partay!food-chips-small.jpg

By the way who ever said Football wasn’t funny?

What say’ y’all?
Good, bad, or a lil of both?

Football is, after all, a wonderful way to get rid of your aggressions without going to jail for it.
Heywood Hale Brown

You have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four.
Dan Birdwell

Football is not a contact sport. It’s a collision sport. Dancing is a good example of a contact sport.
Duffy Daugherty

I have seen women walk right past a TV set with a football game on and – this always amazes me – not stop to watch, even if the TV is showing replays of what we call a “good hit,” which is a tackle that causes at least one major internal organ to actually fly out of a player’s body.

    Too funny!

    I hope you don’t mind, but I “borrowed” one of the animated gifs and put it on my blog (WITH appropriate courtesy credit back to you, of course).

    Obama made cream soup out of Clinton in SC…

    Barack wiped the state of South Carolina with Hillary Clinton. He beat her with over 20 percentage points. He also beat her in almost every category. I LOVE IT! He may be wrong on many of the issues, but what an amazing Democrat. If we have to lose ……

  5. Aurora says:

    Great pics, Angel. I love the clip of the Kentucky bucket running across the field. I don’t know many of the rules I have to admit, but I love the atmosphere of a live game and those uniforms sure are cute. ;)

  6. Jason says:

    GOOOOOOOOOOO GIANTS!!! If you find yourself stuck in Missouri on Super Bowl Sunday then come on by Angel.

  7. middleclassguy says:

    You left out going out. Going to a bar- a real bar, not a soprts bar- to watch the game. Eating wings, fries, and all that. Drinking beer, cheering and booing with friends and strangers, watching people make fools of themselves, and having an all around good time; no mess, no fuss, no clean up.

  8. Jungle mom says:

    I prefer to watch the real football…Soccer.
    But… Go Pats!

  9. Layla Elizabeth says:

    Yes go Giants! I will root for any team that put out the Patriots. My did it in ’85 and I looking for the Giants to do it next week. Heck, I hate Green Bay but if they were playing I would root for them against the Patriots! LOL!

  10. Layla Elizabeth says:

    LOL… I meant to say I will root for any team that can put out the Patriots and…. My should be followed by Chicago Bears did it in ’85 and I am looking….

    So much for proof reading….lol, my bad! lol…. :)

  12. Debbie says:

    I’ll be rooting for the Giants also. Should be a great game.

  13. Gayle says:

    I’m not a football fan, Angel, but enjoyed this post anyway, as you are hysterical! :)

    I probably don’t enjoy football because both of my boys played football when they were in Junior High. They managed to live through it, but just barely! Several sprains, torn ligaments, and once a concussion. Getting the uniforms clean is almost an impossible task.It’s enough to turn any mother off of football. Listening to the parents swear, curse and scream at the games is no fun either, not to mention the brutal behavior and course language of some of the coaches. Once some idiot mother got so excited during a game she accidently dropped her ice-cream cone on top of my head!

    I don’t go to football games. :)

    Sunday Reading List 1/27/08…

    Hubby’s band, SHOW TIME, played last night. The music was great and the company even better. Here’s some Sunday reading for you, enjoy. To read the entire article, just click on the title. Saddam Talked about WMD, Winds of ChangeThis…

  15. Stormwarning says:

    Here is a “reality check” of a long standing Giant fan (since the early 50′s – YEAH, I’m that old!)…is that the only way they can win is for it to be a low scoring game. As of right now, the Patriots are favored by 11 points, with tohe over/under at 53. If the Giants defense keeps the Patriots under 3 touchdowns, the Giants have a chance. If Brady “has his way” with the Giants in the 1st half, half time will be more entertaining.

    And yeah! Alot of the stuff in this post was funny (good job actually).

    ‘Winter Soldiers’ repeat, STOP THEM NOW…

    There is a group named “Iraq Veterans Against the War” which is planning another lie-filled ‘investigation’ titled “Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan”, this March 13-16, 2008, (at the Capitol) to provide ‘information of the atrocities’ our f…

    If the Super Bowl is half as exciting as that NFC final, we’re all in for a real treat. Honestly, I’d be happy with either team winning. Go… um… someone!

  18. Brooke says:

    Go Giants! We can’t let those Pats have a perfect season, can we? :)

  19. Jack says:

    Normally I wouldn’t root for the Giants, but the Patriots just irk the hell out of me. Besides it would be pretty cool to see Eli win the game one year after his brother.

  20. Daniel says:

    Go Giants! I hate the Patriots. I’m hoping for a more exciting Super Bowl this year- last year was boring.

  21. tapline says:

    WHT, Outstanding post as usual….Go Patriots………up Boston way, don’t chu know……stay well……

  22. KkarLlmM says:

    what a relief to the sick things going on in the world around us…wouldn’t be a pleasure if you could simply “throw a flag” on the play and penalize all the insane people, or like in hockey…put them in the penalty box…like….FOREVER!!!!!!!
    As a Dolphin fan of the undefeated team of 1972, if perhaps the Pats were to lose i would not at all be sad….

  23. MK says:

    I don’t really get your American football, but since the score is generally ticking along, it’s less frustrating than watching a couple of guys running around after a ball for 2+ plus hours and not scoring even once. :)

  24. Joe Gringo says:

    The buzz here in Arizona is getting crazy, along with PGA Tour’s FBR Open (Phoenix Open), this IS the place to be!

    Go Giants….Debbie Schlussel had a great post a few weeks ago, naming Tom Brady…..”Woman of the Year” because of his handling of getting his girlfriend pregnant then dumping her right after.

    Go GIANTS!!

    great photos btw.

  25. Defiant_Infidel says:

    Yeah, I’m going to go snowmobiling… It is always perfect on SB Day ’cause nobody is out! HA!

    From the tippy top of a shoulder deep snow covered mountain, I’ll root for your Giants, Angel… I don’t root for hardly anything from Massachusetts, I don’t watch football and I love ya’ to death…. so my choice is easy. I’m with Angel’s team!

    They’re from NY, right? LOL…………. :)

    Well, for the first time in maybe 10 years, I’m planning to watch the Super Bowl. It has not been aired here (as far as I know) in any of the “free” channels for many years. This time also it is aired at a somewhat reasonable time (starts at midnight). I would not say that I “understand” the game. American Football is to uhh… American for me. But I still enjoy watching it from time to time.

    I was at one time being drafted for a university team (and THAT should tell you the quality of AF here in Sweden!) I had not played a single game of AF in my whole life (except for computer games that is) but they still wanted me to play for the team! It all fell on the fact that you had to buy all the gear yourself and pay for the bus ticket to away games… So I took up running in to trees as a hobby instead.
