Something TOM said ~~~~~~

“Super Bowl tonight... will you be a watching or…”

~~~Snacks ready. Beverage cool, TV warming up, ~~~
Draught beer (also known as draft beer or tap beer) has several related though slightly different understandings. The majority of references to draught beer are of filtered beer that has been served from a pressurised container, such as a keg or a widget can. A narrower meaning is beer that is served from a keg (or tap), but not from a can, bottle or cask, is also used. A more traditional definition is beer that is served from a large container, which could be either a keg or a cask. The different understandings may at times overlap and cause confusion. Some traditionalists object to the more modern use of the word when applied to canned beer. The slight usage differences of the term is due to the history and development of beer dispensing.

History of draught

Speaking of SNACKS… NOTE in the picture a SPOON, to halt Double DIPPERS! Food for thought? Check the Audio for this story: Double Dipping Spreads Germs with Ease
Weekend Edition Sunday, February 3, 2008 · Dipping the same chip into a bowl of dip more than once has always been a questionable practice. Now, a study done at Clemson University shows that double dipping does spread germs.
~~ Paul Dawson, a professor of food microbiology at Clemson, tells Liane Hansen that the idea for the study came from an episode of Seinfeld. The New England Patriots, looking to cap off a perfect season, make their fourth Super Bowl appearance in seven years. They face the New York Giants, led by quarterback Eli Manning, whose brother Peyton took the Indianapolis Colts to victory in last year's NFL championship game.

Funny Super Bowl TV Commercials Every year the Super Bowl of Advertising happens to be the advertising of the Super Bowl. Televised to huge audiences and glowing public awareness, sponsor placements have become the game's main sideshow event. So much so, ad agencies juice creativity at full tilt levels. The majority of these commercials, historically, are humorous and among a given year's fondly remembered chuckles.

I was for New England but secretly wanted NY to win so I won either way. It was an exciting last few minutes and I couldn't go to sleep for a long time afterwards. This food looks amazing and I bet it was delicious.

I too was for the Underdog…
But in a way I wanted the Patriots to have the undefeated total season…

Great game we sat on the edge of our seats for sure the 4th Quarter…

We were rather disappointed in the Commercials, in general, the two that I liked the best was the Anheuser-Busch parodied another 1970s film, “Rocky,” with a Clydesdale as Sylvester Stallone and a Dalmatian in the Burgess Meredith role.


Then with Super Tuesday looming tomorrow and all the political Hype I liked “The, commercial for Coca-Cola Classic by Wieden & Kennedy, which featured a familiar Republican, Bill Frist, and a prominent Democrat, James Carville, in a parody of the red-blue political divide — two days before Super Tuesday (a k a the Super Bowl of primaries).”

Be back After Our Super Tuesday… ;)
