Super Bowl Sunday: The Cheeseheads vs. The Thieves

Which side are you on?  Or, are you riding the fence.   What side am I on?  Well, since you asked…

Disclosure: I have been a St. Louis Rams fan for years and intend to keep it that way – check out pictures below from their last home game this past season.  This is only a do or die answer, if I had to choose…

It’s really an obvious answer.  The Packers are “cheeseheads” from the cheese state of Wisconsin.  How do you make cheese?  From milk.  What do I love? Milk, the dairy industry and dairy farmers.  I’m also not a thief so there’s no chance of cheering on the “Stealers.”  LOL!

I know this probably sounds like I know NOTHING about football and I’m one of those chics who call touch-downs, home runs.  You couldn’t be more incorrect.  I’ve always loved football however, baseball is my absolute favorite.  After tomorrow there will be a void…no football, baseball or hunting.  Don’t worry it won’t last long.  Pre-season baseball games and turkey hunting will be here before we know it.

In honor of tomorrow’s festivities, I’ve collected a special Top Ten list for you.  These should be great conversation starters during those awkward parties when you don’t know many people – if they aren’t, please let me know.  Or, shock the pants off your family and friends as a know-it-all.

Top Ten Super Bowl Factoids: Get the Super Bowl Party Started (or, make people think you know what you are talking about)

1. The Pittsburg Steelers have played in seven Super Bowl games.

2. The Steelers have won six out of seven SB games

3.  Four of their wins were within six years.

4. This will be the Packers fifth time playing in a Super Bowl game.

5. The Super Bowl is being played in the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington, TX.

6. One of the highlights in the stadium is the largest plasma screen ever used in a game.

7. The screen alone, cost $40 million.

8. There will be seven officials and two alternates which has been appointed by the Commissioner’s office.

9. The winning players will each receive $83,000.  The losers will receive $42,000 per player.

10. The winning team will receive the Vince Lombardi Trophy.  The trophy is named after the late coach, Vince Lombardi, of the two-time Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers before the 1971 Super Bowl.

BONUS FACT: As of Tuesday morning the average price for a ticket to this year’s Super Bowl was $3,000 each.

Enjoy and most importantly have fun!!

 

We had fabulous seats!!

Decisions, decisions...RAMS WIN!!

It was a great Mama & Pickle time! After the game we visited the Arch which I'm completely obsessed with photographing. I'll have to do a post dedicated to this mind-blowing structure.
