Whose ready for Super Bowl 119! Yeah I have no idea what number super bowl it is, I don’t get why it has to be in that numeral thingy. What I do know is…are you ready for this? Its in Minnesota! Whats the big deal? I live in Minnesota. yes I am in that frozen tundra right now!
I am not kidding you when I say my normal paying job is literally 3 blocks away from the stadium. Talk about Super Bowl Pandemonium going on all week. I am lucky enough to get to work from home during this time. They have all the streets around the stadium closed off and there are activities going on 11 days prior to the big game.
What to expect if you plan on coming to Super Bowl 220? Its going to be cold. Like single digits cold. if you plan on driving while here…get ready for some black ice on the roads, if you will be walking around, yep there is dirty black ice on the sidewalks too. Now if you have no idea what black ice is, its those chunks of ice on the streets that will be there until summer, and you don’t see it and it causes you to slip and fall which ,makes the chiropractors filthy rich or you end up driving into walls on the freeways. But fear not…because Minnesota is not only known for its cold ass winters, but we are known for our skyways!
You can take the skyway all the way through all the activities and even walk all the way to the stadium all without stepping outside. What else can you expect, don’t come here with your little outfits and a light jacket. You will need full winter gear people. I am talking hats that cover your ears, gloves to keep your hands warm and from getting frost bite, a really good heavy jacket. Good sturdy, walking boots that will keep your tootsies warm. And you will need at least 10 minutes before going anywhere just to put on all that clothes!
For you brave drivers, there will be no parking anywhere close to the stadium. if you happen to find a parking meter or a ramp with parking be prepared to pay at least an arm, a leg and maybe a kidney for 1 hour. That is not an exaggeration.
Restaurants…we have great food here, just don’t expect to get into any restaurant without booking it like a year ago.
Want to take in the actives, good news we will have everything ice and cold related. After all we are a frozen state. We will have ice sculptures, ice skating, ice fishing, some kind of ice skiing thing down the middle of the street and last but not least, concerts out in the fresh, cold, frozen open air! YAY!!!
Lastly, please don’t expect us to be saying things like “sure”, yah betcha, or anything like that Fargo TV Show. We do not speak like that!
Now if you are like me and planning on hunkering down in the comfort of your home, in front of your big screen TV to watch the big game, do I have a recipe to share with you. Donuts. Not just any old donut recipe, these are the best darn Copycat Krispy Kreme Donuts this side of MN.
