I am still full from yesterdayâ€¦the Super Bowl is kind of like Thanksgivingâ€¦lots of foodâ€¦only food at the Super Bowl is even more awesome because itâ€™s like appetizers from heavenâ€¦chicken wings, cheese dips, chili, and the all important devil eggs!!!!Â My buddy Vic & I were like Devil Egg junkiesâ€¦scarfing them down like addictsâ€¦.and weÂ both nearly cried when the last couple of eggs were thrown away before our cries of â€śWeâ€™ll eat themâ€ť were heard.Â The funny thing was that my lady had no idea how much I was eating, until she leaned back on me and realized that my gut had ballooned & it was rock hard!Â The game was awesomeâ€¦I was glad to see that the Saints won the Super Bowlâ€¦my reason wasnâ€™t because of the â€śIt would be good for their cityâ€ť mentality, my reason for being happy for them is that I love seeing teams win championships for the first time!Â
My lady & I contributed to the Super Bowl party by making a football shaped cake...she did a great job with the chocolate frosting, but left the vanilla frosting in my incapable hands...yes...I screwed up on the easiest part of the cake...it looks like Tim-May decorated the white lines.
Speaking of cakes, Duff Goldman from Ace of Cakes will be on the show tomorrow at 6:50 am!
The commercials this year were under-parâ€¦however, there were a couple good onesâ€¦like the Auto-Tune spot, the new Super Bowl Shuffle, the Dog Collar Doritos one, but my favorite was more of a promo than a commercialâ€¦it was the one for the Late Show with David Letterman:
For those that think that NBC is gonna be pissed at Leno for doing thisâ€¦donâ€™t worryâ€¦.NBC gave Jay permission to do this.Â Apparently Dave wrote this bit himselfâ€¦he just wanted to make a funny piece, and I have to say that Dave succeeded in that mission.
Double R had a fun event at Hooters for a Big Game partyâ€¦The Revâ€™s girlfriend made it to the party, but the Rev didnâ€™tâ€¦why you ask?Â Because he was busy watching The Puppy Bowl.Â You can watch clips from the Puppy Bowl here:
Here is a trailer of the Puppy Bowlâ€¦in case you donâ€™t wanna go to that link:
Double R & I went to the Alice In Chains show on Fridayâ€¦once again, another amazing show from the boys in AIC.Â Iâ€™d like to thank the fellas in Alice In Chains, as they played Junkheadâ€¦which is my favorite songâ€¦as well as my gals faveâ€¦and the whole ride there we kept hoping that they would play that song.Â Once I heard the 4 high hat hits to start the songâ€¦goose bumps popped out!Â They also played Nutshell, and dedicated the song to Layneâ€¦which was real cool.Â Props to William Duvall, who thanked the crowd for welcoming him into the bandâ€¦and that he appreciates the opportunity to celebrate the pastâ€¦and the future as well.Â My bud Mike Savoia once again took amazing photos at the showâ€¦check him out at http://www.savoiaphotography.com/
