Go Broncos!

Truth be told, I don’t really care that much about pro football or who wins the Super Bowl. I like to pretend that Tom Brady is my boyfriend a) because he is cute and b) because we have the same birthday. I also like to recall the spring breaks in high school that I spent in the vicinity of Peyton Manning, who I vaguely knew.

Oh and I love to watch the NFL bad lip reading bits on youtube. They are endlessly entertaining.

My fascination with the sport stops there, but what I love about the Super Bowl is the part about sitting around eating junk food. I don’t need it to be all football shaped and cutesy. Just gimme something greasy and cheesy with a cold beer and I will stare contentedly at the endless collisions and thank god I am on a couch and not in the freezing stadium watching it in person.

I Love Candy!

Specifically, cotton candy. I know it’s childish, but it’s making a serious reappearance in a myriad of grown-up settings. Apparently I’m not the only one who still loves to nibble on a fluffy, sugary puff ball.

I have to limit my cotton candy exposure to sporting events for fear of tooth rot and diabetic comas, but I take pleasure in knowing that I could own this darling machine if I wanted to make it a daily habit.

Or if you wanted to add a little something special to your next party, most good party rental companies have cotton candy machines to rent for around $75.

I really may need to decapitate a whisk and give that a try!
