Super Bowl Ⓥunday


Early explorers not following maps is how people need to follow recipes

In West Philadelphia born and raised, On the playground is where I spent most of my days. I am kidding. I was born in Denver, CO. However the playground situation is true as long as riding a bike and swimming counts, also. I did also grow up watching and idolizing John Elway, the amazing QB for the Denver Broncos between 1983-1999. The reason why number seven is my favorite and why my signature puposely contains a “7” is because of that man. And this Super Bowl, John gave Denver their third SB victory being the Denver Broncos GM and true Sheriff. I was happy to see Peyton Manning win. I was, however, more excited to feast on all kinds of VEGAN FOOD.


In the first quarter I had Nachos basically as an appetizer. And in the second quarter I enjoyed Potatoes. The third quarter I turned it up just a notch with baked beans. And nothing makes sports more enjoyable (other than beverages) than the ultimate comfort-food, the hot dog. I did pair all of these Vegan courses with different IPAs. I am not sure it could’ve been any better.


The commercials were mostly bad and at times, extremely mad. There was one about how much water you could save while brushing your teeth, although nothing about the amounts of water it takes to produce this worlds disgusting carnivorous habits. There was one for Heinz ketchup and mustard. And it involved “weiner” dogs running with hot dog buns as floaties. These dogs were supposed to be eaten by someone, I’m assuming. Also, Veggie or meat, no dawgs should be eaten with ketchup. Peyton Manning plugged for Budweiser. I later learned that he owns a brewery somewhere.
