Beyonce Bowl

I'm not a football fan.  Never have been.  I want to be because all of America is so obsessed with it and I tried but I just can't really get into it.  Five years ago I had no clue what a down was or what the hell they were throwing the ball and tumbling all over each other for.   I made it a point to figure it out so I could at least follow along.  It was that year the Patriots won like every game except the super bowl and because Tom Brady kept throwing the ball from down to down it finally clicked for me what was supposed to be happening.  For me Super Bowl Sunday is less about the game and more about watching the commercials, what gathering I'm going to and what food will be there.  Mj and I got invited to my girl friend's house where she had a nice spread of junky party food for me to stuff my face with.  There was that awesome zero calorie margarita mix that I mixed with Tequila.  Yes, zero calorie!  But I ate so many chips that even that couldn't save me.  I'll be paying for it at the gym tonight.  I sat there and watched the whole first half of the game but after that I got distracted.

I loved Jennifer Hudson's performance of America the Beautiful and Alicia Keys and her piano definitely did the National Anthem justice.  Beyonce's performance was AMAZING.  I wish I could move like her but all I got is the two step.  She dances and tosses that big hair around like no other.  The way she struts, that fierce look in her eye, that big voice and the way she rocks a leather leotard is mesmerizing.  She is so pretty and so talented that when I'm watching her I kinda wish I could be her for just a second to see what that feels like.  She puts her whole heart into a performance.  I've seem her perform live once and she's incredible.  I thought it was cool that she had Kelly and Michelle perform with her because I'm guessing she really didn't have to share the spotlight with them.  I loved hearing those old Destiny's Child songs and then she did Halo which is one of my all time fav love songs.  All those women stole the show. 

Then the power went out.  After this a lot of the girls at the party checked out.  My friend is totally obsessed with Beyonce.  The only reason she wanted a super bowl party in the first place was so she could watch the half time show with her friends so girls outnumbered the guys.  She made up all these Beyonce themed challenges so we could compete against each other for Mardi Gras beads.  The guys were like, WTF is going on, but I thought it was fun.  We were having a good old time chatting and carrying on for most of the 2nd half.  I understand that the 49ers did a good job of coming back and that it turned out to be a pretty exciting game.  Not that I saw a lot of it.  I was rooting for the Ravens to win because I wanted Ray Lewis to go out with a ring.  It doesn't bother me that he cries a lot before and after the game.  I think it's sexy that a big strong football player isn't afraid to show his emotions like that.  I'm glad they won but what I'll remember most about this superbowl is the awesomeness that is Beyonce and how bizarre it was that the power went out.

I used to be the same way about football and then I started playing Fantasy Football with my husband's family and I learned to love it. Now, it's one of my favorite things to watch! I'm not a huge Beyonce fan but I think she is classy and definitely puts her heart into her performances, she did awesome!

Oh my...I really cannot stand Beyonce. Never could, ever since I was a teen. But everyone has their own artists they like. I don't like football and didn't watch the Super Bowl. I find the hype surrounding it tiring. Just my $.02.

Ameena said...

I watched none of the Superbowl, I even missed the half time show! I had a sick kid on my hands so really, it wasn't my priority.

Just like Dealing with Money (above) I'm not a fan of Beyonce either. I admire her because she is SO talented but something about her just bothers me, not sure what?

I love Beyonce! I enjoy her music and she is such a great performer! I also love that she has a curvy body and is not the typical hollywood thin! I think she is a good role.

** a good role model :)

Hahaha...I'm totally with you on this--I was sad to be in the car driving home during the Super Bowl only because I was missing the commercials! :)

Sounds like you guys had fun! I'm not going to lie, I was mad that the power went out because it made the game drag one way later than it needed to--after 10pm I checked out. I thought Beyonce did great (duh) but the commercials were eh.

Haha I feel like "Beyonce Bowl" is totally appropriate. I didn't get to watch, but I need to find it online somewhere.
