Ok, I know everyone isn't into football, so let's take a light hearted look at Super Bowl Sunday:@)
A-Are we here for the food, the game, the commercials, or to drive hubby home???
B-Between you and me, I think Sally's cheerleader costume is a little over the top...

E-Ever see the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet? Last year they say 9.2 million folks tuned in.
F-Frank's Hot Sauce, the unofficial sponsor of Super Bowl Sunday.
G-Grilling out? This is the largest grill out day of the winter.
H-Half time show, do you honestly remember any except the "wardrobe malfunction"?
I-If I was a betting person, I'd bet the veggie platter will barely be touched:@)
J-Just call attending the game a corporate expense, at least 35% of the folks there do.
K-Killer wings? Oh yea, please do pass that platter my way!
L-Lombardi Trophy-Tiffany makes it and charged the NFL $12,500 in 2011.

O-Oh no she didn't just sit down in front of the shrimp cocktail!
P-Potato Chips, at least 28 million pounds of them will be eaten on Super Bowl Sunday.

R-Red Solo Cup... yep, quite a few of them will be used this weekend:@)
S-So, what company do you think will have the first commercial?
T-Tight End, um... yes, there are some on the field:@)
U-Until the Fat Lady sings... it ain't over!
V-Viewers: 40% who watch the game are not football fans.
W-Who's cuter, Brady or Manning?
X-Xactly how much does a 30 second ad during the Game cost? 3.5 million dollars.
Y-You gonna eat that last Pig In The Blanket?
Z-Zebra: the ref's better not screw this game up!
Have a happy day:@)

  8. Hey Lynn, I love the Puppy Bowl, and of course, super bowl snacks. I also enjoy the commercials. And it is a little exciting for me when it is a NY team. Too bad it wasn't the Jets :( xo

  9. Hi Lynn, I love the puppy bowl! Not much of a football fan, except for my favorite college team. You're going to have the best-est snacks ever for your celebrations!

  11. I love your A-Z!! Actually I'm very excited about the Superbowl this year,because being an ex pat Brit, I want to know what all this fuss is about. We lazy Brits don't do too much with sport except Soccer so I'm looking forward to learning. My three boys are all excited too. Of course I won't have a clue who is who but I'm going to try. Take care, Sally @ Enlightenment for the Sleepy xxx

  13. So cute. I actually saw a version of the puppy bowl on the today show this morning. I love all the puppies! I love the commercials too - no idea who will be first, but I hope it is a good one!

  14. I like the commercials and the food! Usually I like the half-time show, but I'm just not into Madonna. Love the picture...we have been saying our Zoe at 4 1/2 months looks like the perfect Puppy Bowl dog right now!

  15. Hi Lynn, I've lived in both cities and have rooted for both these teams! And, here in Connecticut, wedged between NY and MA and technically part of New England, this is a hot topic right now! But if I had to be stranded on that desert island, I'd take Manning over Brady! Don't tell hubby. He's rooting for NY (I call them NJ)...Linda

  17. I'm not a football fan but usually turn it on for the commercials and so I have some idea what people are talking about if it was a particularly good game. Love the list, Lynn.

  18. Hi Lynn, all I can say is HA! I love this. Yes, I do remember the wardrobe malfunction and that's it. HA! again.

    We will be watching the game with great interest. We are sports fans and wouldn't miss it.

  20. Oh, you are a clever girl! With the Super Bowl on at the same time as Downton Abbey, it will be interesting to see what gets priority in my house. Somehow I think I'll be taping PBS.
