Super Bowl 55

This was one of the first sporting events that I’ve sat down and watched in quite awhile. I had been hearing about how huge of a matchup the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. the Kansas City Chiefs was going to be for Super Bowl LV. There was plenty of hype for the game and I also saw it as a great excuse to arrange a get together with my parents.

Brady dominated Mahomes

We only watched the first half of the game, but what I saw was pretty exciting. The Bucs #2 offense in the NFL were dominating and having no problem moving the ball. The Chiefs on the other hand struggled to get anything going, despite having the #1 offense in the league.

From what I watched Mahomes didn’t seem to be doing much special during this big game. Totally unlike what happened with last year’s Super Bowl victory, I didn’t see that one though. Brady may no longer be with the Patriots, but winning this game makes it pretty obvious that he is great no matter what team he is playing for. It seems as though so many of the Super Bowls that have been played since I’ve been alive have had Tok Brady winning them. He surely will go down as one of the all-time greatest quarterbacks ever. I feel like he’s such a competitor that he will continue playing for a few more years too.

The food and drinks

@flowerbaby and I drove over to my parents’ house Sunday afternoon. My mom spent a ton of time and money preparing some yummy food for us to feast on before and during the game. It was such a nice treat to have so many offerings available to us, my mom has always been great at preparing food.

Let’s take a look at everything that we ate:

Family Time

Although the game was exciting and the food was delicious, my favorite part was spending rime with my parents and girlfriend. Having them all together means a lot to me. We get along so well and always share so many laughs, I really am lucky to have such loving people close to me.

I wish my brother Chez and his fiancé Kristian could have been there with us too. At least they both were able to spend time together and eat some yummy food too while they watched the game in Pennsylvania.

I love you all!

Looks like a great time. I was disappointed in Mahomes performance as well but I also got a bit irritated at a few of the calls in the first half. I have family in Kansas so I am obligated by blood to root for them. When i sent a msg to a friend of mine who lives in USA about the calls he said something along the lines of "Refs love Brady, of course he gets those calls."

All in all it was a pretty exciting game although the score makes it look very one-sided. The Chiefs looked like they were going to pull it back in the 3rd but that just never happened.

BTW: Super jealous of those food options. Certainly that was too much food for your crew and you overdid it just a tad?

The best part of the day was being with family, the game and food were great too though.

It’s facts that Brady is treated like the human NFL trophy that he is. Don’t want to get no scratches on the precious little gem. Part of the reason he is still going so strong, that and his elite level of training and dedication.

Chiefs didn’t look awful, but it just never seemed to come together full for them during the game.

It was entirely too much food. I ate on that stuff for 3 days straight. My mom always provides more than enough. She’s the best!

That's awesome man. I normally go and visit my family every year but well, covid and all that. I won't fly out of the country I am currently in until I am 100% sure that I can get back into it.

My Super Bowl party was more public, at a bar with a lot more people that I thought would be at it because Americans constitute a rather small part of the expat population here. It was fun, but since it started at 7am and I refuse to watch the big dance without a beer, that day got a teensy bit messy.

That's wild, you are literally trapped right now.
That trip to the bar @7am sounds damn interesting. Is that a story you will be sharing on your blog?

i don't know, maybe. I suppose that would be interesting to some people but I didn't take many photos. Perhaps.

As far as being trapped here it is a pretty wonderful place to be trapped. Except for the countries that refused to ever lock down at all we probably have a ton more freedom than most places to live life as normal. I try not to flex on my friends about this too much, but it is the case.

I'd enjoy it, even without photos. As long as you can recall it all clearly.

I believe ya, probably still enjoying life.
My tiny little state of WV wasn't ever really super strict either. Still I'm sure other countries have it better. Especially with a more tropical vibe.

That's fantastic news, probably says something about your leadership. The people I know that live in urban areas are not very happy right now but I never really understood the allure or desire to live somewhere like NYC, Chicago, LA etc anyway. Those places seemed depressing to me even when you were allowed to go out and do stuff.

Family time is so precious. We just went into a new lockdown over here. It’s lonely time for at least a week. I’m glad I have a job I can still go in to and don’t have to sit at home.

The food looks lovely! Not a welcome sight when I didn’t have time for breakfast today. Three hours until lunch...

ANOTHER lockdown? Damn, that really sucks. I'm glad it hasn't happened again here. My job hasn't slowed down once even since the beginning of all of this stuff. Business as usual here.

Breakfast is essential for me now, without it I am starving by lunch and super hangry.

That looks like a really good time!

It really was such a good time. I had a blast and love my family.
