The Super Bowl Medley

Look at that face.  What an arsehole.  For some reason the X-Sister thinks this arsehole is cute.  I'm not into dudes or anything but I just don't get it.

But regardless of who thinks who is cute, this man is once again a loser.  Which means that America's team (and thank god that moniker doesn't go to the Cowboys for now) was victorious last night, 34-17.

Since this is a crossover post, I did not follow football much this year, and I was elbow deep in ground beef for much of the first half, I will spare you all of hardcore football analysis, especially since Phil Sims did such a good job explaining things during the game (oh, wait, that's the opposite of what he did; the Spot's 4 year old nephew would have brought just as much to the table as Sims did yesterday) and instead share a few basic insights:
  1. Thank heaven for Peyton Manning.  Since last June, Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez have shed their selfish loser images and gotten over the hump.  It's true that Peyton accomplished this three years ago when the Colts beat the Bears, but I think it's safe to say now that that season was the exception rather than the rule.  To have my three sports arch nemesises win the championship all in the same year would have made me feel like Peyton looks. 
  2. Sean Payton has some serious brass ones.  Alec Baldwin would be proud.  The onside kick was sexy.  Very sexy indeed.
  3. Why would any company ever buy a Super Bowl commercial?  Even huge companies like Budweiser (this is the only time you will ever hear me hint at a negative thing with the King).  So expensive.  Best case scenario people will laugh at the commercial and remember it for a couple weeks, but usually not remember the brand.  Worst case scenario it leaves no imprint and nobody talks about you at all.  $3 Million down the tube.  There's gotta be a better way to spend your money.  Like maybe free beer for everyone!!!
  4. The commercials themselves this year were nothing special I thought.  Too much naked dude.  Don't get me wrong, showing skin is one of my go to jokes, a trademark even.  But it's kind of ridiculous when probably 5 different commercials are all using the exact same joke.  The Betty White commercial was my favorite.  That broad must have some agent.  Star of a show about 4 retired old women over 20 years ago and she is still relevant.  Bravo Betty.
Onto the food, this is a Burger Blog right?

Well the Super Bowl is one of our country's unofficial holidays like Arbor Day and Flag Day.  If Obama was really the sports president he would do the right thing and give us Monday off, but that's another post for another blog.  But like all good holidays, the Super Bowl is a great day for food.  Wings.  Chips.  Dip.  Beer.  Sausages.  Burgers.

Mostly it's about a big spread of wicked healthy, clean food, appetizer style.  So the Sexy Burger Six decided it was best to stick to this format for Sexy Burger Sunday.  We created the Super Bowl Medley (at least it will be called that until the NFL shuts us down for copyright infringement, those basterds).  A collection of six delicious and adorable sliders with a Super Bowl Sunday app theme.

  • French Onion Dip and Potato Chips:  Even though the French are the most Un-American things in the world and I hate onions, this was a really good burger topping.  Condiment man approved.
  • Creamy Spinach Dip and Potato Chips:  If Popeye were alive today (in 2005 his forearms burst from too much spinach and he bled out) he would be alllllll about this burger.  That is if Whimpy didn't get to them first.
  • Salsa, Guac, Cheese, Tortilla Chips:  A mini South of the Border.  What more can I say?
  • Chili, Cheese, Tortilla Chips:  This was my favorite.  I love chili.  If only it loved me more I would eat it every day.  And if Matt Travis is reading this, GET YOUR DAD OUR INFO!!! I WANT TO DO THE OFFICIAL CHILI BURGER WITH THE OFFICIAL MASSACHUSETTS KING OF CHILI!!!  Hormel is pretty good though if you would rather spend 2 minutes on your chili instead of 2 hours.
  • BBQ: Honey Chipotle BBQ sauce slathered all over our tiny friends.  Spicy and sweet just like Jennifer Lopez, Charo, and Enrique Iglesias.
  • Buffalo and blue cheese dressing:  The master of the Super Bowl appetizers.  We were lazy enough to wait until the day of to go shopping only to find our favorite Stop and Shop all out of our favorite buffalo sauce.  That's when we were saved by an old friend, my good buddy Texas Pete.  If you've ever had Pete you know what I am talking about.
All in all a pretty damn good Super Bowl.  As good as can be without the Pats and the Golden Boy playing.  Inspiring story.  Betty White.  Peyton "Manning Face" Manning showing his stripes. Tiny, beefy, slices of pure burger heaven.

See you next burger!
