I am about to KICK this OFF by BLINDSIDING you.
I do not FULLY BACK football.
I know this information is rather BLITZ-ing because last year roughly 115 million people (on that final Sunday of the football season) watched men ram into each other…
And the average number of people who yell at the TV screen during any one pigskin fumbling game is no less than 19 million (blame Google if these numbers are wrong).
Sure… A game with TIGHT ENDS should HOOK any heterosexual woman, which, by those statistics… It sounds like it does…
Look at that meaty booty goooo…
But this girl… I’m no ELIGIBLE RECEIVER.
It’s probably because I cannot sit in one place for more than 10 seconds… Dare I call my football “watching” ways a FALSE START?
Let me see if I can twist that football term into my football “watching” habits…
Here goes: I sit next to whoever is eagerly watching those thick and brawny dudes in tight pants, about to demolish one another purely to try and capture that “hot potato”... I then look at the TV screen… And realize… Ew. It’s the game where men basically ASK to be beaten up… And the second right before the
field goal kick off… I get up and leave.
I just can’t.
Another aspect that I “just can’t” with when it comes to this game…
Dare I say: I JUST CAN’T… EVEN?
Ohhh… Look at me throwing out more football lingo.
You’d think I were actually the biggest soccer fan ever…
Wait… Football is soccer in Europe. Soccer here is soccer. Ah. I f*cked this one up. Definitely didn’t score a HOME RUN in convincing all of you I know WTF I am talking about.
And… HOME RUNS are only in baseball.
Moving on to something I ACTUALLY know a thing or two about…
Yeah. The point I was trying to make earlier… Before my brain interrupted me with a tangent… Eating healthfully does NOT typically happen when these sorts of sporting events are watched/observed/yelled at.
No clue why… Oh wait, yes I do… The world has an unhealthy food addiction, DUH… I also know (after asking Google, but of course) that roughly 2,200 calories are consumed by the average football watcher… During ONE Superbowl… And that number INCREASES if the team said average watcher was rooting for… LOSES.
There is something else that LOSES during football games… Celery sticks. Carrot Sticks. Crudite platters.
Which is why the recipe I am PASSING your way (to hopefully SUBSTITUTE some of your current snacks)… Is nothing of the sort. Nope.
However… IT IS far healthier than cheeseburger crust pizza….
So now… I HAND OFF the recipe to you… So you yourself can score a TOUCHDOWN on Superbowl Sunday!
