It was this time last year, that I found myself in an Irish bar in the heart of Madrid watching the game with other ex-pats drinking crappy beer and eating non-chicken wing like Tapas. This year I predict will be about the same with the exception of both having a friend for company and being in the heart of Barcelona! WHooo oHOOOOO! Go TEAM! Who’s playing by the way? For me, it doesn’t really matter. It’s like voting. As an American, it’s my duty to participate regardless of who plays or where the game is. I know it’s nuts, but being a bit nuts makes life worth living.
Logically, you may be wondering why I’m talking about this on a wine blog? I was thinking about the fact that I’ll most likely be drinking Guinness tonight while watching the game. But back in the States, I found myself often turning to wine. In fact, I remember having a major brain storm a few years ago with my employees as to which wine paired well with Superbowl testosterone, and the foods that fuel it. It took a lot of work considering the foods that would be served, wives that might be joining husbands and overall testosterone level. Above all, we had to ponder the quantity factor: enormous amounts of beverages! But eventually, we came to a consensus as to which wine would would go with cheesy nachos: white. Here was our rational:
The other part of watching the game here in Europe, which most people don’t realize, is the fact that tonight’s game starts around 12 am! Maybe I’m nuts, maybe I’m just homesick, but either way come 5 in the morning tomorrow, I”ll be on the train home half asleep and happy. Dedication to the game? Nah. Dedication to the Event? Absolutely! Talk to you all soon…oh and let us know what wine your drinking for the big day!
