I know I have been completely MIA for the past week (probably more). I have been swamped at work. I decided it was a good time to finish up my MA… so that is eating away at my nights, and every other spare moment I may have at one point had. Ironically, I have been writing so much for school, my personal writing has been suffering. I just reread an article I had written a few days ago and was completely horrified…. Did I seriously write this
? I apologize to anyone who read it.
Ducky has been terribly sick, and it was only a matter of time before I got terribly sick. Without further whining, let’s just say this has been an exceptionally yucky week, and hopefully next week will be better… hopefully…
I did at one point have a topic for this article, and it had to do with the Super Bowl. In my wildest dreams I never thought I would be excited about a football game. Honestly, I am not excited about the game, but I am ecstatic at the opportunity to see all the people I have not seen in a long time (we are hosting the Super Bowl party at our house, which is always fun).
If you too are hosting the game at your house, or are attending such a game, here is a great game we have played during the Super Bowl that gets everyone involved, even for those of you who are not football fans (myself included).
Everyone that is playing puts $1 into the cup.
The cup then rotates between players for every play from scrimmage (ie 1st down = player 1, 2nd down = player 2, etc).
If a score happens (TD, Field Goal, Safety) while holding the cup, that player takes the money in the cup.
Players shall get 2 plays to hold the cup if their 1st turn occurs during a kick off, if the rest of the kick off is a “touch back” (meaning the ball is downed in the end zone and no return was attempted).
We have been playing this game for a few years now, and it always is a crowd pleaser.
What are some of your favorite Super Bowl activities?
