(I’ll get back on track with our fall and winter updates soon, promise.)
For those who don’t know, I, Rachel, am a huge football fan–the Indianapolis Colts in particular. Robert played football in HS and is a fan, but not to the extent I am. Before we were married he was a Titans fan, but, as he tells people, now he’s “married in” to the Colts.
Needless to say, the TeamEv house was super (haha) excited for the Superbowl last Sunday. We’ve been following all season long, calculating who needed to win, who needed to lose, who’s injured, who’s stepping up, etc., and finally: This.Was.It. Everything fell into place perfectly and we made to the big game. What to do at the TeamEv abode? Why, bake blue and white desserts of course!
We had a few people over to watch the game. Robert made salsa and a shrimp dip. I made blue & white cupcakes and blue & white Oreo balls. We also had a few other finger foods, but these were the specialties. And yet, it was all for naught. Don’t get me wrong, it was fun, until about the 4th quarter. Then I needed to be alone, it really would have been better for everyone. I hated to see my boys falling so flat. So many opportunities that we couldn’t do anything with. It just wasn’t our day, and what a day to have a bad one.
Here are some pics of the festivities:
And yes, that is a horseshoe shaped pizza.
So onward ho Colts fans. Let’s look forward to the next year, which looks to be good. We aren’t losing any major players, and two of best ones (who’ve been out for the year) should be back from their injuries. As Coach Caldwell said: “Our heads may be bloodied, but unbowed.”
P.S. Well played New Orleans Saints, well played.
