5 Things That Were Better Than The Super Bowl Game

Happy Monday!  Raise your hand if you live under a rock?  Okay, no one?  Then, hopefully you heard about that Super Bowl thing last night.  So, I might be from New England, but I am NOT a Patriots fan.  Mike's converted me to an Eagles fan and I had Russell Wilson as my fantasy QB this year, so you know who I was rooting for.  Needless to say, I do not want to talk about the end result of that game, but simply have one question: WHO CALLED THAT STUPID PLAY?!  Okay, moving on.  Instead of talking football, let's talk about 5 Super Bowl-related things this weekend that were better than the game itself...

1. I am definitely a Money Lynch fan.  I know he is a polarizing figure, but I think he's awesome, and I definitely respect him.  He and Gronk were on Conan last week and played the new Mortal Kombat against each other.  Hysterical.  Seriously, take a morning break and watch this.

2. Did anyone watch NFL Honors on Saturday night?  Aside from the NFL not keeping their award winners a secret and me reading about each of them via Sportscenter's Facebook a good half hour before each one was announced "live," it was awesome.  Seth Meyers was fantastic as host and his opening monologue was ON POINT.

3. All of the food.  In addition to chili dip, buff chic dip, pepperoni bread (yes, there were two), shrimp cocktail, and all the snack foods you can imagine, I also made football cake pops - thanks for the idea, Amanda!  Yellow cake with chocolate frosting.  I have no idea how anyone makes them look like this.  Mine were the ultimate Pinterest fail, and I don't think I need to describe what they look like.  But all that matters? They were delicious.

4. My top 5 commercials: Chevy and WiFi, Avocados from Mexico, Little Blue Pill Fiat, Kim K for T-Mobile, and Always #LikeAGirl (I'd seen this campaign before, but I'm so happy the entire Super Bowl audience saw it last night, too).

5. And lastly, a two part-er: a. My boss is awesome and said to "come in whenever" this morning since the day after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday, and b. It's 60 degrees and not going to snow a foot today, sorry New Englanders...

Did you watch the Super Bowl?  Did you have a favorite snack or commercial?

Well, you know I watched. We stuffed our faces with Patriots cupcakes, hot dogs, chicken quesadillas, guac, etc. I love that dang Budweiser puppy commercial..sniff,sniff... The Ted2 trailer was pretty funny w/ Tom Brady :)

Oooh your food looks delicious! I made a chocolate chip peanut butter dip which was supposed to look like a football, but someone in my house ate the marshmallows needed to make the laces!

OK - you have the coolest boss ever!!!

Absolutely the worst final 20 seconds of any game I've ever seen. I don't know what Bevell and Carroll were thinking but I would have rather lost to just about any team but the Patriots. That idiotic call cost us the Super Bowl, no doubt. Sigh. Next year...next year.

The food was our favrite part, and you look like you had a great spread. My cake pops never look cute, but they sure are good. And can you send some sunny and 60 degree weather my way? I feel like I'm working in an igloo today...it's so cold!

Yesss to all that food! I don't even really like pepperoni very much but that bread looks so good! I think my favorite commercial was the one for Jeep!

Love the recap. I agree, the food is way more important than the game. Looks like you had a yummy spread.

I was rooting for the Pats so I was happy with the outcome! ;) The Conan spot was hilarious!! The Budweiser commercial totally got me teary. I loved the Like A Girl commercial too, so inspired.

Yay Eagles! I love Super Bowl food – all your food looks delicious! Your boss seems awesome, today totally should be a national holiday.

The food, Missy Elliott, laughing at K. Perry riding on a freaking pole, men in athletic pants, and the commercials ;)

Jessica said...

Living near Seattle, we are still all heartbroken. I also really enjoyed the food! It looks like you had a pretty great spread too. So many of the commercials were sad but they did send some good messages. The Budweiser was my favorite, I love those horses and the adorable puppy. :)
