If you have read my previous blog post on the Denver Broncos, then my predictions are still on the right track. It’s time for Peyton Manning to finally win another Big Game! The Broncos and the Seahawks are the perfect matchup this year, and I could not be more excited. The number one defense is going up against the number one offense, and this Sunday is going to be filled with GREAT football. Peyton Manning has truly made his mark this season with 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards, and it will be no surprise when he comes out strong from start to finish. After reading his responses from Media Day this past week, it only makes him that much more likable on his modesty about his legacy.
I’m also quite a fan of the Seattle Seahawks. My grandma used to work at USC when I was younger, and we would always get free tickets to watch their football games at the Coliseum. Pete Carroll was the head coach at the time and it was very exciting to watch his dynasty of leaders, including Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush. Those days were so thrilling, and looking at him now only shows that he is the best at what he does. Everyone at the MetLife Stadium will have their adrenaline pumping and will be shouting with excitement every second. Wishing I had tickets is an understatement. It must be an awesome feeling to be there. If you plan on attending, please share your experience with me! I want to live vicariously through you, and I’m also looking forward to hear what Richard Sherman has to say next!
I cannot wait for Sunday’s festivities to being, and to celebrate a Bronco win. This game only comes once a year, and of course I use it as an excuse to throw a party. It would be un-American of me. In my other blog post, I also mentioned that one of the most important items to have this Sunday was an ice maker. Specifically, I’d like to recommend Luma Comfort’s Stainless Steel Portable Ice Maker. Why? Because your life would suck without it. Your party and reputation are on the line if you run out of ice.
I’ve put more thought about how this product can be incorporated into a party atmosphere, and I thought it deserved it’s own blog post. Without this ice maker, your party will be lame because nobody wants a warm drink in their hand. With the pounds of ice it makes throughout the day, you’ll have plenty on site and you won’t have to worry about making those extra trips to the grocery store to buy more bags. It’s compact so you’ll have more room to place your keg near guests, but just don’t put it next to a lot of liquid where the Justin Biebers at your party can ruin it. You’ll need it for future parties to celebrate different occasions, like Valentine’s Day and St. Patty’s Day.
Speaking of Justin Bieber, it’s good to have tons of alcohol at your party, but you don’t want anyone getting hurt. Drunk driving, especially at a high speed, is very dangerous and friends of mine have been killed because of it. I would love to sign the petition to deport Justin Bieber back to Canada. It looks like he is about to have an immigration case on his hands with over 118,000 signatures on it’s way to the White House. I am really interested to watch what the White House does, and I’m eagerly waiting to see if he receives any special treatment for being a celebrity. He is a horrible role model and bad influence for all of his teenybopper fans. He’s also not newsworthy! Our country is so obsessed with pop culture that we don’t listen to what else is really going on in the world. Did you know that the US government was found guilty of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination? Did you also know vitamin B17 destroys cancer cells, but is banned by the FDA? Did you know that the US government was caught helping the drug cartel smuggle drugs into the US? No, but you knew Justin Bieber was arrested in minutes.
I love the advice that Vanilla Ice gave him though. He told the young singer to turn in the liquor for some coffee, which gave me a great idea. I began vigorously searching for ice cube recipes on Pinterest that would be a great fit for my football party on Sunday. Although it’s not recommended to use other liquid than distilled water for this product, I just couldn’t help myself.
My first recipe is a tasty alcohol and coffee combination. It’s great for a party, but not strong enough to send someone over the edge. It’s also a great energy booster:
- 2 ox of Baileys Irish Cream
- 6 oz vanilla vodka or milk
- Coffee ice cubes
I’ve also been thinking about how I can create orange and blue ice cubes, and I found the perfect solution. Koolaid! You’re probably wondering why I didn’t choose orange juice. Orange juice is more of a yellow color and that wouldn’t match my Bronco decorations. I also heard running Vodka through a Brita filter will improve the taste and that it did!
Therefore, my second recipe is completely different. As the ice melts, the flavor of your drink changes:
- 6-8 oz of Sprite
- 2 shots of vodka
- Berry Blue Kool-Aid Ice Cubes
- Orange Kool-Aid Ice Cubes
I saw other ice cube recipes on Pinterest with flowers or bits of fruit in them, but I haven’t tried those yet. These two options of flavored ice will fulfill the different taste buds that people may have at your party. I would recommend that you first make the water ice cubes before making the flavored ones. Just make sure to really clean your ice maker afterwards, so it doesn’t stop working correctly.
