Pre-Game Jitters

Well, thanks to me still being somewhat under the weather, it looks like we’ll be watching the big game tomorrow here at home.

In a way, that’ll not be a bad thing, as it seems that being close to my bathroom and being able to lay down when needed is an excellent idea.The girls and I will hobble along as needed, so the excitement for the big 50th game will be enjoyed from the sidelines.

I have some classic nibbles on hand for the game, and unfortunately, I think hot tea or ginger ale might be my beverage du jour.I have a chip and dip mix that I bought from Penzey’s Spice house, which is now available on line, so some veggies, Ritz “everything” crackers’ and some chips might be on the board for that.

If you are going out to see the game and are driving, please designate a driver.I need to have every reader I can hold on to…seriously, you are worth more than a super bowl party.

By the way, I leave this post with only one wish.

“Chicken parm you taste so good.”

Chicken Parm You Taste So Good.

I had a marketing class or two in college,so I can appreciate a good jingle when I hear one…

Which leads me to Peyton Manning, the winning quarterback for the Denver Broncos football team.

I really prefer college football, and frustratingly used to follow the Philadelphia Eagles.I won’t lie to you: I was a fair-weather fan.

The Nationwide Insurance commercials made me pay attention to Peyton Manning. Sure, I knew of him, and his brother Eli and the family history.

The catchiness of the commercials made me “like” him. Next to Tom Brady, in my opinion, Peyton is a regular guy; in my opinion, he is more of an All-American guy. Tom Brady has his model second wife and kids. His team lost tonight: I am sure he’s going home and his pocketbook won’t be hurting.

It’s time for someone else.

Congratulations to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on a job well done. On to Super Bowl 50.
