As most of you know I am a Huge sports fan. I absolutely love the Superbowl. It is like a national holiday at our house as I am sure many of yours also. This year there is a small issue...No let me rephrase that a very large issue. I have been a die hard Denver Broncos fan for most of my life, but since moving to an area with professional sports teams, feeling the energy and being able to attend a few games I also love the Seattle Seahawks. Both teams have heart!! How often does both your favorite teams make it to the Superbowl??
A couple weeks ago I got to fulfill a dream of mine and attend the playoff game between the Seahawks and Saints. It was an amazing experience to be part of that famous 12th man crowd. To be amongst 68, 000 fans (and yes I did lose my voice.)
It has been a lot of fun to see the spirit and energy everyone here is feeling. You cannot go anywhere without seeing most people dressed in Seahawk gear, cars with flags attached to them, houses and building with a big 12 on them.
(Russell Investment Building in downtown Seattle. It stretches out 18 floors.)
Today I went into 2 different stores. People were flocking around the Seahawk stuff, almost everyone had one if not two of more items in tow. There are lots of businesses that are normally open on Sunday, but are closing early so everyone can watch the big game. The radio stations all have Seahawk names. I have never experienced anything quite like this. I must admit it is easy to get caught up in the excitement....
Ok so I went a little crazy, but it was so much fun!!
(My friend borrowed my Broncos stuff so that picture still needs to be taken)
At work they throw me under the bus because I am a Broncos fan, but hey can't I be a Seahawks fan too?? It all worked out well until..NOW. For I have to make a decision...See my HUGE DILEMMA!!!
One thing that is not a problem is food!! We have a few things that are a tradition like:
This year I'm adding a few new things like
With chips and homemade Pita Chips (recipe to come later).
and for dessert by request: (even though I just made it last weekend)
We will be eating well!!
What are some Superbowl traditional foods for your family?
Now as for my dilemma..I'm hoping it is a good close game. I'm guessing this will be a game time decision I will have to make, but obviously it is a win-win situation for me no matter who comes out victorious!
Enjoy the Game!!
