Win it: Tickets to The NFL’s Super Bowl XLVII Party in Toronto (+ Why, Why, Manti? The Autotune)
Sunday, Sunday, Sunday… Sports, Sports, Sports… Football, Football, FOOTBALL!!!
Do you know how hard it was for me to find a sufficiently lulzy football gif just now?
Apparently, it’s not only Europeans (and people who pretend they’re European) that call soccer “football.” The Internet is rife with it. Living in Canada, I sometimes lose sight of the fact that America does not, in fact, control the world.
That said, if you do live in Canada, please heed this advice homies; Call anything in the world whatever you want to call it (Grumbleclap knows, I do) but if you want to avoid getting pegged as a deeb, you can really only get away with the whole “Oi, it’s cauwlled footy ih’ is!” thing if you’re a real European (as in the kind that actually lives or has lived in Europe for a period longer than your university exchange.)
And Superbowl Sunday happens to be a really big day for us here in the Western Hemisphere!
Last year, I made strawberry footballs that took about 3 hours to prepare and jumped around a lot during the half-time show.
This year, I’m hitting the NFL and Bud Light’s official Canadian Super Bowl XLVII Party in Toronto, where I won’t cook a thing but will still likely get really excited during the BEY-half-time show (and also the commercials.)
Here are the deets, straight from the presser because AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR TO BE CREATIVE RIGHT MEOW:
“You asked for it, Toronto! Due to popular demand the NFL and Bud Light are bringing back the legendary Official Super Bowl XLVII Parties, the most exciting and authentic way to experience Super Bowl in Canada. Don’t miss the ultimate viewing experience, complete with:

- A New Orleans-inspired Super Bowl spread
- And much more.
A video from last year’s party, if you will:
Who: You, me, lots of friends, some football guys (including Tim Brown, former Heisman Trophy winner and long-time Oakland Raider and Brian Westbrook, two-time Pro Bowl running back and Philadelphia Eagles all-time leader in yards from scrimmage) and some NFL Cheerleaders. Maybe they’ll do an outfit swap with me. I want one of those skirts.

Personally, I’m excited to see what goes down on the Queen Bey front.
Will Destiny’s Child Reunite? WILL THEY NOT? Will Kelly and Beyonce go Michelle-less? And if so, is it because they totally hate her and think she’s garbage, or because Michelle is just too busy that day?
Only time will tell. Poor Michelle. <;-- Tumblr of the month, btw. SO EFFING GOOD.
