Let’s Play Ball… and Eat!February 2, 2019
It’s Super Bowl weekend, and you may be asking… who cares? Well, millions of people will tune in to watch the Rams vs. the Patriots tomorrow. And, as you may have heard some say, the commercials are often the talk of the whole game. (At least for those of us who aren’t that passionate about football.) But why wait for the big game to see the ads? Let’s play ball!
It turns out, you don’t have to wait! Each year, more and more companies are releasing ads early in hopes of getting some buzz going sooner, and I suppose to make the most of the roughly $5.1 to $5.3 million it costs to purchase a 30-second spot on the CBS broadcast.
Amongst the early-release ads are offerings from Norwegian Cruise Line, Mint Mobile, Audi, and Sprint. Best of all, you can watch them all right now, as Ad Age reports. No football needed!
Watch tomorrow’s soon-to-be most talked about commercials right now!
If you are entertaining in any capacity tomorrow, you need sips and nibbles, right? Let me let you in on a little secret… Shelly and I love a nice, neat martini, so consider cocktails checked off the list! 😉 We also love our popcorn, salted and lightly buttered, of course.
If you are looking for more complicated recipes for game day, HGTV’s round-up of super bowl snacks is a great read. Check it out here.
But, to be frank, I suspect the best game day recipes are in your kitchen… on a 3 x 5 card, or even simply saved in that bustling brain of yours. That’s why, today, on FACEBOOK, I am challenging you to share your best — and easiest — appetizer recipes. Get ’em out of that head of yours and into all of our tummies! Head over to my Facebook HoneyGood page and share now!
