Title: Super Bowl Sunday
Post by: vigneronsp on February 05, 2010, 11:32:46 PM
Who is everyone rooting for this weekend?  Anyone doing special beer/food pairings?

I would like to see the Saints win since they never have.  If the Colts win, I am fine with that as well.

Nothing special as for food and beer pairings for me.  I always drink whatever I feel like.

Since I'm not a big follower of the NFL, I generally just pick the team from the city in which I'd rather live.

This year, that's an easy decision that forces me to walk a fine line. ::)

I really don't care who wins. I'm in it for the food. Party is at my house this year, and we are just doing cheap junk food. A couple pizzas. I'm making some hot wings. We are also making tortilla chips and salsa, and Holly is making a 7 layer dip. We'll also have a pot of chili dogs going, and whatever our friends bring. For beer, I have my Black IPA, house IPA, and a bourbon vanilla breakfast stout.

SO! Who's got a buttload of Beer and Food that they're going to be eating and drinking alone now?  ;D

We're passing on the party, so we can actually watch the game. There will be food, there will be beer, but I'll see the game.

I'd like to see the Saints win, but I'm not tied to it.  Chili, chips and cheese here,  For beer, wee heavy, Ofest, DAB, Belgian pale ale, dubbel, Torpedo, some others not defined or unknown.

Be careful with the Superbowl word. It's a registered trademark of the NFL and they sued some folks a while back. Us common folk can only use "The Big Game" to keep from losing everything we have. Only in America.

 Going for the colts. The Spirit of Johnny U lives on.

What, your not going to make your famous crock pot kielbasa in sweet and sour sauce, slow cooked to perfection for 36 hours?

I'm making Buffalo wings (regular and guacamole), potato skins, Kris' Bean dip, soft pretzels, and fried mushrooms, zuchinni, and onion rings. I expect to die of a heartattack about mid-third quarter.

On tap- Old Coot Brown Ale and Fourth and Long Red. OH! and I'm rooting for the Saints.

Oh dude! that was harsh! It's good stuff man. Don't be a hater. And it's not sweet and sour sauce, it's a mix of cranberry sauce and cocktail sauce. It's good dammit!!

It may be good, but I still say that a pound of velveta cheese and a dozen clams might be an improvment.

I heard on NPR tonight that antacid sales the Monday after the Super Bowl increase 20%. After reading this thread, I believe it.

Secretly, I'm just jealous y'all get to watch the game.

    I might give that one a try. Sounds pretty good. You really should try my candied kielbasi though. It honestly is awesome. A can of cranberry sauce, and a can of cocktail sauce. Simple, and kicks butt!

Mannig doesn't choke anymore. I hated the guy too for years, but this year he's evolved into probably one of the best QB's to play. I'm not saying 'the best' because I haven't been around long enough to see them all in their prime, but Peyton is something special to watch right now...


Just got done cleaning the jalapenos and stuffing with Lil Smokies and cream cheese. They're wrapped in bacon and awaiting their date with the grill later this afternoon. Wife just got done making the cake balls and my buddy whos hosting the game has the brisket smoking. Nothing like 60ยบ weather in February!

Probably be a BMC type day with some Shiner Frost mixed in. Next week the new 4-tap kegerator gets unveiled for Daytona!

I'm late to the party - just like the team I root for (see avatar).  Yep, now they're the only team/city to have no association with a Superbowl. :(  Every other team or city in the league has either played in, or hosted a Superbowl.  My son (23) asked me how long I thought it will be before they win a Superbowl.  I asked him how long he's planning to live, then told him to add five years....

It was like that my whole life as a Patriots and Red Sox fan.  Altoughth Sox have won the World Series before ( 1918 being the last ),  prior to 2004, there were people waiting the whole lives to see a championship.  My father, who was a huge Red Sox fan never got to see them win.  Hang in there...it could happen!!!

True - one of those was even in my lifetime.  Of course, I was too young at the time (almost 2 yrs old) to have any recollection of the event.
