The Super Bowl is upon us. Ehem–I mean–the big game. I hope I don’t get fined for that; I don’t have that kind of money (and I’m not that big of a deal).
So, admittedly, I haven’t truly cared about the outcome of a ‘big game’ since 1998, and I was sorely disappointed. So usually, by the time the second round of the playoffs arrives–I’m pretty done with football. Bitterness can make a person ugly.
Sure, I’m happy there is still one more football game to watch, but I really, really don’t care who wins. That is, of course, unless Peyton is in the Super Bowl. A dear friend of mine personalized this particular pep talk and it got me through a tough break up many years ago. I have loved Peyton ever since. I wish I was kidding.
So anyway, I’ve compiled a list of five wholly unnecessary, but totally awesome, items for your Super Bowl party. If you’re like me and your team is out–you can purchase these things with a clean conscience. You don’t have to jump on a bandwagon to enjoy the ‘big game!’ If you don’t care about football, and this is your one day to pretend–these are just the things for you to host a fun big game party.

Because nothing says I don’t care about the outcome of this game like a silver cocktail shaker shaped like a football. You might as well wear a t-shirt that says, “I’m only here for the party.”
Most football fans don’t use platters to watch a game. Show your guests that you are not most football fans. You are the consummate host/hostess, and by golly, you will use that bamboo cutting board in the shape of a football.
Here’s the thing; don’t buy these if you’re supposed to be a Seattle Seahawks fan. If folks catch wind that you purchased “Boston” spreaders, they may think you’re a jinx. If you’re supposed to pull for the Pats–congrats! You just made Bill Belichick smile. That’s the Patriots head coach (you don’t have to Google).
Also, the description says these are good for soft cheeses and spreads. Nothing says, “I know pigskin” better than a good baked brie. 😉
I know what little Bear is wearing for the Super Bowl!
Have a Super weekend! See what I did there?
