The Colts are going to the SuperBowl! The Colts are going to the SuperBowl! One exclamation point in the title for each touchdown they scored against the Patriots.
It’s funny, I’ve always *wanted* to give a damn about the SuperBowl, because it seems like a fun thing to get all riled up and rowdy about, but I’ve just never really felt it before. I never really understood football, or had a team I was rooting for, and when I was a kid I remember the Seahaws being a really crappy team so even though that has changed since then, I still can’t get over that first impression and root for my local team by defaut. So I’ve always been apathetic about the football.
But now, with a boyfriend from back east who was a fan of the Colts back when they were a Baltimore team, I’ve been getting football lessons and have developed something of a team spirit for the Colts. Peyton Manning rules. Addai Is Awesome. Go Reggie Wayne. I like those guys. But more than anything, I like an excuse to get all hardcore about sports – I sometimes feel like a fraud, since I rarely grasp what’s actually happening during any given play, but I still manage to cheer “touchdown” at appropriate times.
And the confections; oh, the confections. I made cupcakes with little Colts horseshoes on them for a previous game, complete with white nails on the blue frosted shoes. It’s time to step it up a notch. This is, after all, the SuperBowl. So I’ve been racking my brain about how to make fabulous, Colts-themed snacks. I have a few ideas, but I wouldn’t turn up my nose at more assistance. So if anyone out there has amazing SuperBowl-appropriate food ideas that can be made either blue and white or horseshoe-themed, bring ’em on! GO COLTS!!!!
