During the past week, all we heard about on the morning talk shows was Super Bowl parties. All the great foods that you should serve, beverages you could drink and how to set your table with all the proper decor. So I decided that was what we were going to do… a Super Bowl party.
We got all decked out in our Super Bowl watching costumes. We could not come up with the proper jerseys so I dug deep into our closet and came up with an Ed McCaffrey jersey who played for the Denver Broncos in 1995 through 2003. I also found my Art Monk jersey. Art Monk played for the Washington Redskins in the 1980’s.
Note that Gwynne was already trying to change the channel when I took this picture.
We invited our closest friends, Cash and Jake.
To our amazement they showed up in the exact same jerseys.
Then the excitement began with 10 minutes of the teams entering the field.
10 more minutes for America the Beautiful, 10 more for the National Anthem and 10 more for the coin toss celebration.
Finally…………… we settled in and began enjoying the action. I decided that I was going to root for the San Francisco 49ers mainly because Baltimore beat Denver to get here in the first place.
Whoops, I almost forgot this post is about a party and you can’t have a party without food and drink. So… on our menu we had potato chips (the original kind), which I’m sure we hadn’t had for at least a year, Bud Select (55 calories) and chicken wings (which I don’t think I ever had).
|Next came the halftme show with Beyonce. I’m sorry, it must be my age, but I used that time to visit the restroom, get another beer, more chips or anything else I could think of to occupy that time. I would have enjoyed a few tunes from Adele or a duet with Steven Tyler and Carrie Underwood.
Below is what my guests thought.
The second half began with an exciting 108 yard kickoff return by the Ravens. Then the lights went out, not only for the 49ers but in the stadium. I’m sure it was because of Beyonce, but the NFL is saying it just ain’t so. During the 45 minute delay, we continued to party, finishing off the wings..they were great!
I would add more game info , but this is about the party. Along with our guests, we all had a wonderful time, the food was great and have started planning next year’s party.
