Super Bowl Cheesecake Plus Other Critical Prep Activities

With the Super Bowl just a few days away, you need to get your things in order. Many of you know I live in Los Gatos – which is spitting distance from San Francisco – so you probably know which team I’ll be cheering for (if I make it back from the mall on time – seriously, I’m just kidding…or am I?) First, you’ll need to memorize a few facts to ensure you are the life of the party. Second, your game attire should be defined days in advance (I am catching you just under the wire). And finally, you need to figure out what you’ll take to the Super Bowl Party. Regardless of your team, I am serious about leading the charge on these three items starting with some quick facts.

#1: Super Bowl Facts you Must Memorize

  1. First venue: Memorial Coliseum, LA
  2. First MVP from the Losing Team (I’m not even sure how that’s possible) Chuck Howley, Dallas
  3. First team that failed to score a TD (Oh, for God’s sake) Miami Dolphins, Super Bowl VI
  4. First time a winning player said “I’m going to Disney World” (now this one will make you sound like a genius) Super Bowl XXI, Disney paid MVP Phil Simms $75,000 for an “impromptu statement” (I also hope they gave him a pass as they are quite expensive)
  5. First person to win the game as a player and a head coach: Mike Ditka

#2: Next, what to don during the big game??? What you wear is super important (And, I DO believe men think about this days in advance)  First, I would recommend wearing something loose to allow for “expansion-room” to help accommodate for the beer, wings, burgers, chips, beer and yes, double layer cheesecake you’ll eat. If anyone is too embarrassed to ask and are wondering what colors to wear – I’m here to help. First, if you don’t care which team wins, then please wear red/gold/black. If you have no idea which colors go with which team then pay special attention: 49ers: Red/gold/black. Ravens: Black/gold/red. 😉 Girls, I’ve just been informed that “loose” isn’t good so you’ll have to starve and wear something sassy.

#3: As for what to bring? (Always a bit stressful) Well stress no more! This year you should bring the double layer cheesecake which I’m going to teach you how to make. This has been passed down from one generation (my Mom) and it is killer. Not only can anyone make this, it will be the most amazing cheesecake you’ll ever eat.
