Men in Tight Uniforms and Yummy Super Bowl Eats

by Spicie Foodie on January 25, 2013

Next Sunday, February 3, in the city of New Orleans there will be a gathering of men in tight uniforms. They will be there to play a game called “football”. This game is played on a large green field that is decorated with a bunch of white lines and numbers…I think they have to do math or something. So then these guys who have tight butts squeeze into tighter uniforms and put on some funny hats so they can smash into each other. But they are tricked as there is this one guy running away with a funny looking thing called a ball -which isn’t even round it’s oblong??? The guy with the ball is rammed into the ground by some other guys which usually turns into a pile up of hot guys. Sometimes there are other ones that come flying into the pile up. Then a whistle blows and it starts all over again. Numbers are also put on some board and the crowd begins cheering or booing. Basically that’s how you play football…oh yeah then in the middle of the game they bring out pop stars to sing and dance around in skimpy outfits. There’s confetti, ass smacking, and one of the teams is given a metal ball on top of another metal thingy.

Okay so as you can see I know absolutely nothing about football. I’ve never been a football fan and have only watched one Super Bowl game. I was bored by the game and sorely let down by the half time show. For me the only good thing was having yummy nibbles to munch on during game. I know many of you are fans and will be hosting parties next weekend. So I want to share some yummy eats for you to serve at your parties. Enjoy and have a great time!

Omg… popcorn with hot sauce… I’m all over that one. :) I would eat any one of these… men in tight uniforms are not necessary. :)

Great round-up. And now I am positively craving Italian meatballs!

Who wouldn’t want that meatball sandwich?! My mouth is watering it all sounds so good. We will actually be traveling that weekend, so there will be no Super Bowl party at our house this year. :( Great collection of good eats, Nancy!

I feel the same way about soccer. And with soccer you don’t even get to have a party and serve up wonderful food. This all looks wonderful Nancy. I’d like a big bag of that popcorn and that sandwich please.

Hmmm, I’ll take the Corona, and the sandwich that looks so good. Like you, I just enjoy the food and not much the game. Have a good week, Nancy! :)

I have to admit that I do know a lot about football. At lot more than you, but then that’s not very hard based on your description. :) I grew up in a football household. We watched it every Saturday and Sunday, all day New Year’s day – anytime a game was on – college or pro. I have to admit that I acquire a lot of it. It has changed over the years, but I do still enjoy it just not quite so fanatical. :) What a great line-up of football goodies!!
