It’s College Bowl Time around here, and boy howdy, has it been fun!
The Aggies won, the Spartans won, the Raiders won (I will catch hades for this one), the Ducks won (and this one, too), so I’m a happy camper overall. Especially with the A&M- Duke game. But that’s my bias typing.
Anyway, one of the complaints heard from the Peanut Gallery was my lack of *ahem* hostess skills this time. When Draco was here visiting, I went out of my way to set out snacks and sandwiches for the guys while they watched football. Apparently my lack was noticed by some, since this time I decided to enjoy the games and let them fend for themselves. They weren’t raised by wolves, apparently.
Things One Should Never Skimp on Football Days
You’ll be on the edge of your seat, so best to have some backside support.
If you run out, you’ll get tasked to get some. Which means you’ll be missing the game.
#3– Throat lozenges
You’ll thank me for that. And avoid the cherry flavored ones. You’ll thank me for that, too.
#2– Snack foods
This goes without saying, I know.
Because not every team wins, and “moderation” is not in your vocabulary during a game.
Anyway, I’m off to shop for tonight’s game. The last thing I need is more Peanut Gallery musings while screaming at the TV 🙂

There should be a large container of K-Y lube set out for those whose teams are gettin’ butt-sext by the better teams. 😀

I think my Hokies needed some of that. That was ug-lee.

Do you have those little BBQ sausages? I like those. Little smokies I think?

My list has always included plenty of trailmix and beef jerky (cuz the best time to go hiking is when there’s a serious game on…most of the folks you meet are the non-sports-fanatic types…and female….). If at home, my preps include several movies, various video games, and/or books.
Yeah. I’m not much of a sports guy.

Oh, not a big fanatic myself, but it can be fun 🙂

What is wrong with cherry cough drops? I am very impressed by your sandwich stadium.
