This week's Friend Makin’ Monday is about the Super Bowl.
Did you watch the Super Bowl?
Yes, I watch it every year. My husband loves football. We have a party every year for it. This would have been our fifth annual Super Bowl party but a big blizzard this weekend forced us to cancel. We were snowed in and our friends were snowed out. We carried on with our plans for food and decorations though because I know it’s an important day for Chuk. We called it the VIP party…and we were the VIPs!
If so, who were you rooting for?
I was rooting for the Saints. My extended family is all from Louisiana, so I have ties there and I felt like New Orleans needed a win after all that’s happened to that city in the last several years. Besides, it’s kind of Cinderella story with it being their first time to the Super Bowl.
Where did you watch it/not watch it?
At home. I can’t go anywhere until my street is plowed!
What did you eat?
I made a big taco bar with hard and soft tacos with all the fixins. For dessert I made Hello Dollys.
Favorite Super Bowl commercial?
I really liked the Letterman promo with Leno and Oprah, just because it was so unexpected, but I also liked the Snickers commercial with Betty White playing football.
I didn’t like any of the Go Daddy commercials. I didn’t like most of the Bud Light commercials either. I thought a lot of the commercials yesterday were pretty sexist and I find that type of humor offensive.
What did you think about the halftime show?
Who do you wish would have been the halftime show?
I wish it was some unexpected combination. Like when Steven Tyler and Run DMC partnered up. I want to be surprised and wowed.
