Superbowl Sunday

I LOVE Superbowl Sunday.  It's a bittersweet day for football fans across the world - it is the last day of football for 7-8 months, but it's a fun game with lots of hype surrounding it.  

At our house we do prefer college football over pro ball, this is Texas after all where there are many schools that provide long hours of football entertainment.  (UT was robbed this year....I'm just saying........).  Scot went to A&M for undergrad and UT for his MBA.  Our boys are divided with N being a die hard Aggie and G a die hard Longhorn (orange looks great on him with his hair).  I went to Baylor and the only recognition I got this year was when the Bears almost upset Tech.  The 4 of us were front and center for the College National Championship game and we cheered Florida on to victory.  

In preparation for the Superbowl, we had a family meeting over dinner one night this week to decide which team we would be cheering for.  After some discussion, the Jenkins decided to pull for the Arizona Cardinals.  Why??  Scot does not want the Steelers to be the first team with 6 Superbowl victories, we love Kurt Warner's story, and I am a sucker for the underdog.  Those are good reasons, right?

In a couple of hours we are going to a Superbowl party with the chips and dip I signed up to bring.  I will forego the fun conversations in the kitchen with my girlfriends in order to watch the game, and the commercials, and the half-time show.  I can already hear Born in the USA being belted out now, can't you??  I will cheer for the Cardinals as if I've been a fan for years and I'll hold my husband as he weeps when another football season officially comes to a close. 

I will be strong.

  1. I love Super Bowl Sunday too! Even though this year as it takes the focus off my birthday! Haha!

    What a fun household rivalry you've got goin on! As if brothers don't disagree often enough...I know, believe me!

    We are rooting for the Cardinals, too. I love to cheer for the underdog (unless my team is the favorite!) and we have been a Kurt Warner fan since he was with the Rams (we live 3 hrs. south of St. Louis).

    Enjoy your day!
