Well that was a nail biter!
My voice is hoarse from cheering and screaming at the tv. I’m disappointed of course, but it was a really good game.
I’m a huge 49ers fan dating way back to the Montana days as a kid. They haven’t been to the SuperBowl for a while and the whole city has been so excited. I think this is the first Superbowl that I’ve been glued to the tv watching every play…normally I watch, hang out, eat, watch…repeat. This year, I pretty much just watched.
There were gooey slices of pizza…
I ate a lot of carrots and hummus…and then drowning my loss sorrows with brownies after the game. We’re on west coast time, so the game was over by 8 and Super Bowl isn’t really dinner time. Was so strange for me to get used to a nighttime Super Bowl when I was on the east coast…here it’s an afternoon thing.
Anyway- the game and party was great. At least 35 people were crammed into a little apartment..and 5 TVs were set up.
And despite the Niners’ loss, I’m so happy to have spent the day with friends…and so proud to be a San Franciscan…they were still great and exciting to watch this year. Thanks for the experience Niners! Until next year….
And now for two fun Super Bowl facts!
1) the average fan eats 1200 calories during the game. At first I thought that was a ton, but I guess if you’re with guys who are drinking a lot, the alcohol calories add up pretty fast.
2) A football player can burn 10,000 calories during the game. Yikes that’s a lot!
Do you think the 1200 calorie average is accurate? (Maybe not for you, but for other people at the party you were at? My party was pretty tame- the food was good and despite the pizza and desserts, the rest was healthy so I don’t think most people even came close to it.
-Where’d you watch? What was the best thing you ate? What percentage of the game did you actually watch?
