Congrats to my Giants for pulling out another nail biter of a Super Bowl victory! Those guys sure know to keep the audience hanging on until the very end!
Here's the outfit I wore yesterday in my G-men inspired colors. I did take these pics early in the day. And I did end up trading my heels in for some red flats by the time the game started though, since we were going to a friend's house and I didn't want to stomp around like Rumpelstiltskin whenever I got worked up over the game.
I did manage to have beer and pimento cheese on my shirt by half time and near the end of the fourth quarter I gave up all semblance of trying to look cute because I was alternating between hiding under a quilt on the couch or jumping up and down like a maniac due to the antics on the television. Yes, I am one of those annoying people who get worked up over the game and can't watch certain plays so I hide and yell instead.
As you've guessed by now, I am not one of those "cute" sporty girls with the perfect hair nursing my bottle of Michelob Ultra while I snack on grapes and whole wheat pita points - though I try! I am one of those girls who yell profanities at the television over every play with my mouth full of burger and beans. I am pretty sure by the start of the second quarter my lipstick was gone and my hair was relegated to a ponytail so as not to get in the way of my munching and trash talking.
Honestly though, I am not a huge sports fan typically and honestly I could care less about basketball, baseball (unless the Mets are in the World Series ... and I don't have to worry about that much), soccer, hockey or anything else. I'd much rather spend my Sunday afternoons watching Real Housewives reruns while I paint my nails. I watch college football occasionally if it is a group activity and only keep enough of an eye out on the rest of the NFL just to see who is leading. But my Giants ... I make exceptions for my boys in blue.
Are you a sports fan? Do you get riled up over certain games? Or if you don't like sports, what makes you jumping-on-the-couch-yelling-at-the-top-of-your-lungs fanatic?
