Super Bowl and ORANGE BLIZZARD!

29 Jan

Is there a signature drink for the Super Bowl? A cursory search says no which is kind of difficult to believe. The NFL sells just about all aspects of the game so why not an official cocktail? Can you believe they sell tickets to media day  for $32? That’s where Joe Fan gets to watch journalists ask questions of the players.

Beer appears to be the refreshment most consumed during the Super Bowl and the many pre-game festivities. The event is just too long for the consumption of hard liquor. Colonial Liquor has always had better business on the Sunday of the Daytona 500 vs Super Bowl Sunday.

As to the game itself we like Peyton Manning to complete his dream season with a victory, easier than most think, let’s call it 31-21. Smart guys tell me Seattle will move him out of the pocket and change his game but Denver must know that. I’ll take Denver Coach Fox over his counterpart Carroll in any game. Seattle will need their defense to set up at least one score. Denver must avoid the costly turnover. Pretty simple. And Manning announces his retirement soon after the result is official.

Duke visits the Syracuse Dome on Saturday and we’ll be sponsoring the 3rd annual Orange Blizzard at Flaherty’s in Honeoye Falls. 16 local businesses will be awarding prizes at halftime (6:30 tip off). All one has to do is wear some orange to Flaherty’s and collect their free raffle tickets at the door. WARNING: The place will be packed. As in not-a-seat-to-be-had-90-minutes-before-tip-off-packed. We believe the Orange will keep their undefeated record intact against the improving Blue Devils.

It’s been a terrific year of college hoops. At this juncture I see about 15 teams that could win the NCAA Tourney and six of those play in the Big Ten.
