Our Super Bowl Tradition

I never used to care about the Super Bowl. Sure, I would go to parties but only because they were parties. Not because I cared about the game. Before Jack was born, we would go to someone's house. Eat "football" food and hang with our friends. It was fun, but again, the Super Bowl itself was just kind of meh.

Once we had a child, it wasn't as easy to go anywhere. Our friends had kids too so it wasn't easy for them to go anywhere either. So, my husband and I decided to start our own tradition. This will be our 3rd year with our new tradition and I have to admit that I have been looking forward to it for weeks.

For the third year, I'm cheating on my diet, we bought wing sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings, we are breaking out the fryer and making our own buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks and nachos. We are waiting for the munchkin to go to bed before we start our deep fried food extravaganza. I am actually looking forward to the game- hoping to watch the Packers get pummeled. I am looking forward to the commercials (give me a break... I'm in Marketing so this is like the Super Bowl of all things Marketing/Advertising). I am looking forward to hearing Christina Aguilera sing the National Anthem and wondering how big of a train wreck she will be. I am very much looking forward to Lea Michelle sing God Bless America (total Gleek here). I am totally excited for the Black Eyed Peas during halftime. I am looking forward to the Super Bowl! 

I could say that I do all this for my husband because he is a total football freak, but that's not true. We turned it into a fun night for US. We brought things into our tradition that we both happen to enjoy so it doesn't end up being about him getting a free pass for the night just because it is the Super Bowl. It is something we both look forward to and in a sort of weird, selfish way we are kind of glad that we aren't sharing it with anyone. We also feel like we started a tradition that our son can join us in when he gets older.

I know there are a lot of football and Super Bowl haters out there, but I am happy and proud to say that I love it and have fun with it.

Go Steelers!

How are you celebrating (or not celebrating) Super Bowl Sunday?
