It ain’t a Super Bowl party until…

It ain’t a Super Bowl party until…

You see a St. Bernard in a Giants jersey.

Last night was a great party with fans in Giants, Patriots, Steelers, Packers and Lions jerseys.

My buddy Jack cooked up a storm with homemade jalapeno poppers and ranch, pulled pork sandwiches and anything else you could want to eat.

Only the big game can bring together people and dogs to watch football and shove their faces full of food.

Aside from the St. Bernard there were five other pups about the place.

It was a great game with great people and one painted face.

Jack is also a diehard Giants fan and I’m pretty sure he lost his voice rooting for his boys and celebrating the W.

So like any Super Bowl blog post, here’s the part where I post my favorite commercial:

I just want some more pulled pork sandwiches now…

Teach Me How To Bucky

Those who know me know how loyal I am to my home state, Wisconsin. Moreover I’m loyal to the University of Wisconsin athletics program.

Anyone who knows me well also knows I went to the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, not UW. But our D1 athletic programs at Green Bay are not nearly as impressive at those in Madison (I do cheer for the girls’ basketball every time they make the NCAA Tournament).

In fact UWGB doesn’t have a football team because Vince Lombardi gave the school $1 million at its inception in 1965 for the sole purpose of not creating a football team because “Green Bay is a one football team town,” said ol’ Vince.

So I am bubbling with joy over the fact that the Badger football team will smell the roses in Pasadena, Calif., on New Years Day, playing in their first Rose Bowl since 1999. Yes a BCS Championship game is all but all certainty for UW.

Students at the U are pretty darn creative too, as this video was made by students and has nearly 1,000.000 You Tube hits.

This video has a lot going for it, bashing the rest of the Big Ten, including Minnesota, while also glorifying how Wisconsin is the best in the conference this year (We did split the title, but UW is ranked the highest).

One thing Fighting Phoenix have going for it more than those Badgers is the fact that our football team hasn’t lost a game since 1965.

Go Badgers, or as they say around Camp Randall, Go Bucky!
