This is it.
This is for all the marbles. For the Big Kahuna. For the Lombardi hardware, so that we can have an even set of four.
This is for 2007.
This is for all the king's horses and all the kings men.
And this time we don't have that arrogant swagger.
This time we know how important and how vulnerable this team and this game is. It's anybody's ball game and there is no team I would rather be taking the field with than My Tommy and the Pats. This year I won't be in Indy with my brother. I decided last Wed to give up my ticket. Too much of a logistical nightmare for me and three 50 year old, crazy guys. Can you believe I took a pass? Hey, I've been there, done that. I can check attending a New England Patriots Super Bowl win off my bucket list. This year I will be home hosting a party and will be in front of the screen come kick off. The party is half the fun anyway.
Some fun Super Bowl party facts according to The Nielsen Group:
1.25 BILLION chicken wings will be consumed Sunday.
9 out of 10 people in the US will be watching the game.
Domino's Pizza estimates they will deliver over 9million pieces of pizza.
11.2 million pounds of potato chips will be consumed and 8 million pounds of guacamole.
Historically, the team with the lower unemployment rate tends to win the Super Bowl. Today, Boston's unemployment is at 6.8 percent and New York is at 8.5 percent. This fact bodes well for the Pats, BUT, the last time a team with a higher unemployment rate beat a team with a lower unemployment rate was in 2008 when the Giants beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. F-them.
1/3 of all adult will be betting this game and 51.7 million cases of beer will be sold. (do you think Heff is part of that equation?)
Hotels in Indy are sold out! But, if you want to stay close the airport, the Indy news is reporting that a hotel that normally charges $39.00 a night is available for $729.00 a night this weekend.
The Super Bowl is the second highest food consumption day in the US, second to Thanksgiving.
7-11 stores report an 20% increase in the sales of antacids the day AFTER the Super Bowl.
If my stomach is the only thing that is hurting after this Super Bowl, then I will be a happy girl.I'll pray for Tommy like Giselle wants me to. I'll pray to anyone who will listen. Let's bring it home.
God speed boys, bring it home to mama. We will all be waiting.
