Attention fantasy footballers!
The time has come. No this post is not a reflection over the season or my preview to the greatest sporting event in the USA (people try to argue about the World Cup and Olympics), but this is not what the post is going to be about. So let’s get started. By now I am sure most of you have been keeping up with the NBA, the Heat, the Lakers, or at least watched a highlight here or there. The NBA has been fun to watch just to see how teams are playing with a shortened season, no preseason, and the constant travel. Also, we all want to see how well the Heat are doing. Lob City (the Clippers) are doing well so far, but we have to wait and see how the season takes a toll on the team. The Bulls could contend well against the Heat in what will probably be a repeat of the Eastern Conference Finals (maybe a different outcome). The West is too close to call at this point but my guess is the Thunder making a run to the Conference Finals against maybe the Nuggets (what?????) or the Blazers.
So I was thinking to myself about the Super Bowl (trust me I am not going to talk about the game) and it hit me – the game is in Indianapolis. Before it was “awesome the game is being played in Indy, home of the Colts!” and reality sets in and the only thing people know about Indy is that it is the home of the Colts. What are people going to do there? Last year there was an issue in Dallas for entertainment and nightlife. I heard that they were importing dancers and booze into the city to accommodate for the Super Bowl. What is Indy going to do? Does Indy even have a club? Will there be a pre-party and after party? Will there even be a party? Indy could be starting a new trend in the league that the Super Bowl is a classy event with wine, cheese, and a tie. But I doubt it will go far. The Super Bowl is about more beer, more wings, more chips and maybe even some shots. It is not just a normal Sunday football game – it is THE Sunday football game. I mean next season the Super Bowl is in NOLA. The same month (maybe a week apart) from Mardi Gras. Think about it – mix the Bowl, Bourbon Street, and beads together. And the year after that the Super Bowl is in the City (aka NYC). And I know people are complaining about how it will be cold and bad weather but its NYC! The capital of society. So if you are the few people that happen to be going to Indy to watch the game live, I would love to hear what you did for fun. Sure beats me thinking about it.
If you are throwing a party in your home remember 5 key things to make the game a great experience: 1) you can go for 48 beers or a keg depending on how cool you are, 2) food such as pizza, wings, chips and dip – do not skip on the guacamole, 3) soda (Coke, Sprite, anything not Pepsi), 4) Jack for the Coke, 5) napkins (people always forget this and run around like crazy people when a friend accidentally knocks over his drink). Follow these tips and you are on your way to having a FUN night! Stay safe, drink responsibly, and enjoy. And no this is not my last post till the game, I just figured I might forget to mention drinking responsibly that late into the week.
