Superbowl - almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea — LiveJournal
if I had to explain, you wouldn't understand
Yo, Wisonsin/Minnesota posse

So, this superbowl thing. No-one told me that Green Bay is like, totally in WI. I bet you're all having cool superbowl parties.


*glares at posse*

I'm afraid I do not speak your language. I have a large bowl for cooking requirements and am not really fond of the colour green.

I have tea.

My elbow hurts.

Will that boy just go to sleep already?

Me? Fine, fine...

You should come over. We're not having a party (since we're in WV), but Dr. Nick is watching the superbowl thing, adn I'm making snacks like guacamole and hummus and eventually, black-bean chili. And there's beer.

Me, I'm more into the Animal Planet PUPPY BOWL!

Minnesotans do not discuss Green Bay* unless forced to by the fact that they are the only team left playing from our division (our Division being Detroit, Chicago, Green Bay and Minnesota).

*No, I do not know why (and you may not have noticed this because there's no reason why you would) the Detroit Lions, the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers all go by city names, but the Minnesota Vikings are named after the entire state. ...oh, probably because we have two warring major cities right next to each other (Minneapolis/Saint Paul) and we'd never agree on which one to use.

Also, no cool party, just three friends, pizza, wine, and a neverending litany of how the two women think the Steelers quarterback, Ben Rothlisberger, looks weird. Fortunately the husband was on pain meds and couldn't stop us.

The good news is, starting today, the Minnesota Vikings are UNDEFEATED! .. for the upcoming season...

Seriously, I think I really ought to support them, given how many folks are in my Minnesotan Posse.

Wait. Minnesota is the state? I thought it was a city? Or is that Minneapolis? And Saint Paul?

*wanders off to google maps*

Minnesota is the state. Saint Paul is the capitol, but somehow Minneapolis managed to muscle in and get top billing. You always hear "Minneapolis/Saint Paul" to refer to the whole metro area, but not the other way around. And of course, the two are also referred to as the "Twin Cities", although it's clear they are fraternal twins and not identical ones. Saint Paul, despite its efforts, remains small and quaint, with a distinctly historic charm. Minneapolis is sleek and artsy, with a great reputation for performing and fine arts, not to mention design and advertising.

Our state motto is "Land of 10,000 Lakes" but it's really somewhere around 12,000. We have 90,000 miles of shoreline, and even though it's almost impossible not to be on a lake, lakefront property remains expensive. ... probably not as expensive as anywhere else, though.

...*blink* ... I don't know why I got all educatey, just there.

I like my state. My football team needs work, but I like them, too.

I love it when you get all educatey.

So. Vikings, not Packers. Yes?
boliviafang From: boliviafang Date: February 9th, 2011 12:50 am (UTC) (linky)
Vikings, yes.

Packers only if they get to the Superbowl. ... and only if I hate the other team more.
