Its no secret…I come from a family of football fans!
The Super Bowl is bittersweet…its the football game of all games, but its also the end of the season (What are we going to do after church on Sundays)?!??!!
In the words of my father…the holidays are Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and Super Bowl Sunday…YES its that big in our family! Its a major holiday, we have a party and everyone brings something, we eat, talk trash about the game and whoever is going for the underdog in the house (all in fun) and we have a good time!
And we celebrate Emma’s birthday because in true football fashion she was born the day before the Super Bowl in 2012 (Feb 4)!
My pick this year…
Honestly, I have no connection to either team! So usually in that case I have to dig a little to find a reason to go with that team. Reason #1-My Husband and Father are going with Seattle! Reason #2- the commercial with the Deaf player Derrick Coleman!
Coleman’s story really touched me! If you havent seen it…Duracell produced a commercial featuring the Seattle Seahawks player. Coleman had a successful career in both high school and college (UCLA), but he was not drafted his first year. But that did not stop him, he tried the following year and achieved his goal of playing in the NFL!!!
The commercial explains how Derrick Coleman went through many years of dealing with people picking on him and coaches that didn’t understand how to communicate with him!
Check it out…
I have always had a special place in my heart for the Deaf Community ever since I took American Sign Language in college. My father taught my sister and I to sign when we were young, and in college I decided to take that rather than take a foreign language and I learned so much! Sign language is also helping Emma who’s speech is developing a little slower than the average kid due to her being born with a Cleft Lip and Palate.
Beside the Game…
I dont know why I try to start eating right prior to the Super Bowl because it all goes out the window that day…but I wont get down on myself I will just enjoy the (as a cheat day) and get myself together on Monday!
My husband loves Bruno Mars…so I have been forced to listen to him on many occasions! LOL! He has some good music so I am very interested in seeing him for the Half-Time Show!!
And Last but not Least…
I cant wait to see this one on the big screen! I love the Cheerios Commercials…I don’t care that she is Bi-Racial…she is a CUTIE and I love the family aspect of the commercial!!!
