Well, all my little American bloggy friends, I did try!! Try what, you might well ask?!
Superbowl 2011 was televised LIVE on BBC television here in England, so I thought I would sit and watch it, so that I could be there with all my friends from America.
First of all, may I say that the Stadium was Awesome! Then along came the players in their brightly coloured Lycra. What can I say - that sight was even more awesome! Didn't leave much to the imagination in many cases. Somehow, I can't imagine David Beckham running on to the pitch dressed like that. (Well, I can dream, can't I?!).
As the players were running out, I noticed that some of them had like little pieces of white material hanging down. Tell me, was that there to protect their modesty, or was it there for some other important reason? A girl likes to know these things, you know.
Anyway, it started here at 11 p.m. and television coverage was due to continue until 4 a.m. Apparently, the game was going to last for four hours (4 hours!). (Our football matches last for 90 minutes, and then they have a 15 minute interval). No wonder you all needed so many munchies and were talking about tables laden with home made guacamole dips, hot crab dips, pigs in blankets, veggie trays, potato skins, Italian sub cut into bite size pieces, cheese and crackers, wings, stuffed mushrooms, bruschetta, devilled eggs, fruit plate with dip, chocolate fondue ....... etc. etc. (and these were only some of the menus I saw being bandied about yesterday!).
I'm afraid that I could only make it until 11.30 p.m. when the game was about to commence, and I was so tired that I just had to go to bed. But I was with you in spirit, if not in body!!
Congratulations to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (you see, I know all about these things!!). I hope you all enjoyed the game and had a wonderful evening.
