Unfortunately my husband's team didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year (not even close) and since I don't really have a favorite team I didn't experience the same sense of loss. Admittedly, I tend to route for any team with an animal on their helmet - the cuter furry four legged variety prefered.
However, we are still looking forward to the game - more so from the postion of frolicking with friends. One doesn't hear the term frolicking used often, but as defined, meaning "to play and move about cheerfully, excitedly, or energetically" - it works for me and is sure to be our game day experience.
I really only watch for the commercials and I cannot wait to see the full Papa John's and Peyton Manning commercial - I have been seeing teasers all week - it looks outrageous.
Whatever game day weekend has in store for you - be sure to enjoy!
