1 bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal
6 piece California Roll
1 bottle of water
1 mandarin orange
chips and dips (tortilla chips, Doritos, Pirates Booty, spinach dip, jalapeno and cream cheese dip)
1 bottle of Newcastle beer
1 bottle of Flat Tire beer
And the gluttony begins…
1 scoop of Frito pie
6 baby back ribs
1 bottle of Newcastle beer
My friend Brian and his wife Jessica hosted a Super Bowl party. They set out a bowl of ribs the same way one sets out a bowl of potato chips, for snacking purposes. I don’t know why people don’t do this more often. I gnawed on six of those things before it was gone. As a side dish, I ate a scoop of Frito pie, which could be the single fattiest concoction ever devised by mankind. I’ll write more about this tomorrow.
1 pulled pork sandwich
This was pork course #2 in our day-long feast. I love meals where two courses revolve around pork. There was also cole slaw but we forgot about it, which was too bad. I like cole slaw as a side, but like it even more as a condiment. You put a scoop of that in your sandwich and it’s heaven. And you don’t need a fork to eat cole slaw if it’s a condiment. You can hold a sandwich in one hand and use the other to shovel cheese dip onto a chip.
BTW, the commercials were horrible this year. Doritos, you are unfunny as fuck. Hyundai? Stop playing classical music in the middle of a football game (although Brett Favre in 2020 was decent). Budweiser? How much money did you spend on forcing middling comedy down on throat? It’s like NBC spending millions on Jay Leno. Speaking of which…Vodpod videos no longer available.
Who knew that this, and not the Tim Tebow anti-abortion ad, would be the biggest WTF moment of the day (well, next to the onside kick, Pierre Garcon’s drop and Peyton’s horrible interception). I don’t know what to think. I was on Team Coco and like Dave, but seeing Jay in this was amusing, and it’s been a long time since I can claim that about Leno.
Anyway, commercials sucked this year. By the fourth quarter, we ended up watching the Puppy Bowl in lieu of commercials. Cuteness! Except for Fava the labrador, who I thought would kick ass on that field. Instead, he was lazy and full of disappointment. He’s like the Reggie Bush of Puppy Bowls.
1/2 slice of pecan pie
I bought pecan pie to fit the Southern theme of this meal (New Orleans, Mannings, ribs, pulled pork). I didn’t realize that people don’t care for pecan pie. To that, I say bullshit. Pecan is highly underrated and a great pie if given the chance. Admittedly, I’ve only been to the South once and my preconception of that part of the country is from “Steel Magnolias” and “Mississippi Burning.” But I bet they’d love a slice of pecan pie if given the chance.
Speaking of New Orleans next two weeks there is going to be SKULL-FUCKING CRAZY. This video makes me want to drive down there RIGHT NOW. Hell, I’m not doing anything for the next two weeks, I can make it there in three days. I hate bandwagon jumping fans, but if that bandwagon involves two weeks of non-stop drinkng and public flashing of boobs for beads, I will hop on. May Bourbon Street be coated with drunken vomit and errant bodily fluids, and may everyone be ecstatic about that possibility.Vodpod videos no longer available.
As for the Colts, it’s good to see the wincing Manning face return. It’s been a while, old friend!
