Please don't let this post confuse you - - - I'm still COLTS BLUE through and through.
But the Colts didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year, and the PACKERS did. Besides, I was a Packer Backer all through high school and I wasn't ABOUT to pull for those Steelers.
We watched the game with our friends over at Eloise and Bill's place. This was the upstairs, NOISY crew.
And this was the downstairs quiet and refined crew. I wasn't allowed down there not being of the quiet and refined ilk.
We had quite the party buffet - - - and this doesn't even include the stuff that was out in the kitchen!!
The first half of the game was a breeze - - - there was LOTS of cheering and even some shouting goin' on upstairs.
All was sedate and quiet below.
Second half turned into a nail biter - - - so I spent a lot of time "grazing" around the table. The hot wings chicken tenders were THE BOMB!
Finally - - - with just seconds to go - - - it became clear that the Pack was indeed BACK - - - and that they were going to win their fifth Super Bowl by six points.
There was riotous celebrating upstairs - - - including a little victory dance by Dane!
And the downstairs folk (bottom dwellers) broke into spontaneous, if silent, waves of joy.
Aaron Rodgers - - - you're THE MAN!
