Football Schmootball

~~~Updated Wednesday January 27th~~~

Congrats to Dana!

It's almost kickoff time here on The Avenue. Colts, Saints, Vikings and who cares. I could ask Whynot, but I just don't care. I hate football. They throw, they run, they drop, they get a penalty, they tackle, they didn't have two feet on the ground. Pshaaa, whatever. Total waste of nine plus hours on a Sunday, where the male species feels the need to redefine an already prominent ass groove in the couch that they didn't even care enough about to give their input when at the furniture store on a non-football Sunday.

But Superbowl Sunday, well that's a whole 'nother story. Superbowl Sunday is all about the food, with annoying football on for background noise. Bring on the snacks and the chili and hot wings. Chill a few beers and call it a partay!

Whether you´re planning a huge party or you're just looking forward to kicking back at home with your friends and family, Old El Paso Green Chiles can help you spice up the festivities!

Old El Paso Green Chiles, which come in 4.5 and 7 oz cans, are a simple way to liven up your go-to favorites. Fat-free and with only 10 calories per serving, Green Chiles are not spicy, but will add a unique flavor to your dishes that the whole crowd will love!

The NY Jets.

I usually make Chili, 7 layer taco dip, cocktail franks, meatballs with either grape jelly or cranberry sauce and chili sauce and then have a big tray of veggies and dip. Tortilla chips and potato chips. If I don't make chili, then it's hot wings. I don't know about Anastasia, but I'll be having Bud Light Lime.

Forgive her Lord, she knows not what she says!! LOL!

I don't understand your whole 4th team playing thing....two games today (Colts vs Jets) and then later (Saints vs Vikings).

GO VIKINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By the way, the best way to clear a room at my house is to watch football without serving the snacks. I didn't make snacks today and I got to watch the whole 2nd half of the Colts/Jets game and it looks like I will have the living room to myself for the Saints/Viking game now. hehehehehe, I wish I would have known this sooner. lol!

I'm with Queenie when I say I'm not sure what the "4th team" playing means. I've sat here while the Colts beat the Jets, and I'm STILL sitting here while the Saints and the Vikings run back and forth. (Cuz I'm on my laptop thinking HE'S the lazy one)

Joe is ALL excited over the Super Bowl and I just finished saying "Why do you CARE!?"

So during the Super Bowl, I'll be standing as far away from anything lethal as I can.

I'm not that into football either. And my husband seems to watch it all weekend...

J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets!

And I'm with Queenie Jeanie. Go Vikes (although my delayed game just showed the Saints scoring to go up 21-14).

I'm hosting my annual Super Bowl party here with friends and food -- including my husband's now required chili. I haven't decided all that I'm making, but I thought briefly about canceling the party if the Vikings win so that I'm not distracted, but what better way to jinx everything?
