Super Bowl Predictions:

I have a couple of predictions, but mostly just a score….I’m going to say…..

Giants 33 – Patriots 23

  1. I predict Gronkowski will be out before the second half, unless he doesn’t play until the second half.
  2. I predict Victor Cruz will be a major game maker.
  3. I predict Eli will actually run in 1-2 of the touchdowns.
  4. I predict the Giants will make a turn around with an onsides kick.
  5. I predict Tom Brady’s head will explode from anger. (steam from ears at the very least)
  6. I predict a UFO will be seen on my DVR.
  7. I also predict that Madonna will do a stupid imitation again of Cruz’s salsa move.
  8. I predict my husband and or the girl child will be spill salsa on my new couch whilst wearing nothing but Denver Donkeys attire.

That is all. Eat, drink and be loud. Salud.

Hypocrisy becomes me….

Hypocrisy becomes me….

So I have a new friend coming over for the Superbowl and they like white wine. I will drink white wine if I have some asian pears, if it’s really hot outside or I can mix it with juice; overall however, I am a red wine girl (well, actually I am a whiskey girl, but sometimes I like to put on airs and pretend to be high-class….) and know nothing about white wine besides you serve it cold and in a narrower glass. (Thank you bartending college….)

Also for said new friend, I get to have a pretendish dinner party. It’s going to be me, husband, new friend and maybe the girl child. But its going to be lowkey…I’m only making a couple of fancy dishes….the Camembert Poutine (sweet potato fries rather than gnocchi, I ain’t got time for that shite) ala Nadia G, and my peach balsamic baked brie….BUT we are also having the lil’smokies in bbq and chips and dips and all that crazy manjazz. hahah, that looks bad. “manjazz”

Damn it, I digressed.

Back to wine.

Anyway, I texted said new friend and asked about years (vintages?) brands and varieties…not being a white wine wino, I know Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Moscato and Chardonnay, but I know there are more and I know nothing about the differences. New friend finally texted back, but I had already purchased my wine.

You know how I picked?

The bottles.

There are pinups on them and that matches my house’s motif.

Can I be a misogynist and a woman? Damn it. I do like me a hot cheesecake pinup. *giggle* It’s a mini-obsession.

OH! So yeah, therein lies the hypocrisy. I make fun of people for picking teams because of the QB’s looks, but then here I am picking wines because of the scantily dressed women on the bottles. Judging a book by its cover….

But come on! At least it’s local winery! See:

I’m supporting local industry! Does that give me some credit? No?

Oh well. The bottles match by Pinup Porter beer collection 🙂

Foozball, Schmoozball. NY vs Boston….I mean Giants vs Patriots…

Oh, I just heart football! *giggle* I heart my Saints more than either team in the Superbowl; but if I have to pick a team, it has to be the Giants. I can’t help it. I think Victor Cruz is dreamy. *cue the needle scratching across a record* 

No!

I don’t like the Giants more because of how a player looks. Are you kidding? I just listened to a girl go on and on about picking the Patriots because Tom Brady is “dreamy” (Really? Who says that about anyone besides a doctor on some stupid anatomy tv show?) but then she went on to wonder if he would be less lucky this year because he cut his hair.

OMG.

Please for the love of all that is holy, unholy and precious to sweet ancient baby alien space monkey Jebus, tell me she is not the norm.

Do people really pick teams because of how the quarterback looks?

Because he looks smart? Dumb? Pretty? Black? Tough? Scary? White? Fast?

I understand being a fan because you are from a certain area or because your family has always loved the Denver Donkeys, er, Denver Broncos; but because the QB has dreamy locks? Give me a effing break.

I am picking the Giants for the following reasons:

  1. It is Eli’s year to shine. His dumb looking brother (hahahah, see what I did there?) is finally out of the way.
  2. Victor Cruz had a killer year for me in fantasy.
  3. Gronkowski is injured.
  4. Brady is prone to temper tantrums when things don’t go his way and that combined with the stress of the game will mess up his hair, ergo his luck.
  5. New York teams are just on an upswing.

Sorry Bostonians. You going DOWN.

Suck on that.

And Mark Wahlberg, say hello to your mother for me at the game.
