Well the day has arrived! SuperBowl Sunday in Glendale, Arizona. Although I am not going, I am having a few friends over to enjoy some Paella and the game! Isabel and our good friend, Gicela, are off to New York this afternoon to do a little shopping for her store, Earth and Images. So I will be bachelor-ing it for a few days!
I am hoping for a better Super Bowl this year than the one I had to withstand last year being a diehard Denver Bronco fan. Seattle and New England - really you couldn't ask for two better teams to come to Arizona - both wonderful cities with amazing entrepreneur spirits and two of the wealthiest cities in the country. So I am happy they are bringing the dollars here to Arizona. I wish the weather was a bit better so we can truly showcase our beautiful city. How about the fog this morning.....geez - Really???
Its been fun to just be in the city and feel the electricity. Yesterday was my father's 80th birthday and so Friday we made it to the Super Bowl Breakfast where they honored Peyton Manning and then off to the Phoenix Open to get poured upon, so we escaped to the Spa for some massages and of course a martini, and finally capped the day off with dinner with the family. But what was great was all the people coming and going and the celebrities we saw all over town. What fun.
So no Super Bowl red carpet parties, didn't make the NFL Experience, and no ESPN Zone.....just a wonderful day with Dad and today I'll kick back and enjoy the game on my big screen with some good vino and good friends. I am proud of our city - what a great opportunity for us all! Let's all be gracious ambassadors and make this the best Super Bowl ever so the NFL has no choice but to come back. I think with all this fog and rain you would think Seattle.....but last year was the Year of the Horse and look what happened! So I am going with New England 27 - 24 in OT. So who do you think is going to win today????
