Our boys didn’t make it to the Big Game this year (go Patriots!), but we’ll still be tuning in come Sunday. Hey, who are we to deny buffalo chicken dip?

1. If you need us, we’ll be hibernating in the man cave all day.

2. We wouldn’t dream of missing the Puppy Bowl. These cuties have been training all year, too.

3. Chicken fajita pizza. Avocado fries. Spicy Asian hot wings. We’ll be rolling off the couch after eating all these snacks.

4. Let’s hope the 2014 commercials bring it like the 2013 ones did.

5. Bruno Mars is owning the halftime show this year. And we’re expecting big things.

There’s no denying the power of social media and its ability to get people talking. And now, we can see just which topics had Facebook users chatting. The site “has tapped its data from 2013 and released its version” of the most buzzed-about headlines from the past 12 months. Among them? The Conjuring  the year’s most-discussed movie. And the U.S.’s top topics: football’s Big Game and and the government shutdown. See the full list here.

Born and raised in a staunch sports town (ever the underdogs), it’s difficult for me to admit that I’m not all that much of a fanatic. In fact, if professional sports were indefinitely disbanded, I may not even notice (sorry, Dad). On the other hand, if beer and taco dip were wiped from the earth, I would definitely have a bone to pick – you know, with the junk-food gods. I’m all for the celebrating that surrounds Sunday football – the people, the snacks, the yelling uncontrollably at the TV – and if it’s my turn to host, we’re going all out.

Starting with these completely adorable utensil holders. They’re so easy and fun, and you can put them aside for football seasons to come.

Leftover construction paper? Use cardboard and twine to create football drink tags (for beer cocktails) or green coasters painted with yard lines. I found these green food containers and acrylic paint at a craft store. Fill them with game-day favorites like a zesty snack mix or a football-themed dessert.
