It’s almost here! Our annual excuse to watch t.v. with friends and gorge on chips and heavy dips happens this Sunday. Even my friends who don’t know the difference between the end zone and a tight end get hyped for this American-made pseudo-holiday.
Super Bowl-Related Games
We’ve been hosting a small group of friends with their children for years, but now that my youngest has flown the nest, it looks like we will be kid-free. That won’t keep us from playing our own games that track the big game.
Once again I have created 2015 game-specific bingo cards. The first winner at our house gets a $5 lottery ticket, and the next 5 get a $1 ticket. The link below will take you to a download page. Just print out as many as you need (the Master List is on the last page); M&Ms or Hershey’s kisses make yummy markers.
Use our house rules:1. Play begins when the National Anthem is sung. 2. The item described on the bingo card has to have been actually observed (not assumed) by someone at the party and confirmed. 3. Appoint a referee (striped shirt not required) who will be the final arbiter before a prize can be selected. 4. A player can only win once.
We also play Super Bowl Pool.
The Super Bowl is the perfect time to try those decadent recipes you’ve been collecting on Pinterest. Everyone wants to pitch in, so enjoy the smorgasbord that a Super Bowl Potluck brings.
If you are hosting, why not serve a punch recipe that has caught your eye.
12th Man Town
Seattle’s quarterback, Russell Wilson, is RVA’s hometown hero. Talk about a class act who can get the job done. Can you say #epicwin about the NFC Championship game? Needless to say, a lot more of our guests will be donning green and blue rather than the Patriots’ red and blue.
Though Ellen and I will be hoping for a repeat and properly inflated balls, we are mostly looking forward to a convivial evening filled with good food and good friends and, hopefully, a few good commercials. Now that’s something to celebrate.
