Curtain up! Light the lights!
You’ve got nothing to hit but the heights!
(Noticing that all of your eyes just rolled in unison) What? I know that’s a theater reference. Duh, it’s from Gypsy. What am I … an idiot? (pregnant pause, as in third trimester) Well, actually, I kind of am. At least when it comes to football. But we’ll just keep that between us. That’s why I had a little fun last year on Superbowl Sunday while at a friend’s football viewing party by hosting my own private #FootballForWomen party on Twitter. Actually, it was how I first got to know my friend Mel that I’m always writing about here at ODNT. Plus a whole mess of other
certifiably crazy delightfully funny people, too. It was a small group but we laughed our asses off that day.
So I’m doing it again … this time with Mel as my co-host! (‘Cause she’s way better at making those fancy napkin sculptures.)
This year, we rented extra chairs and I’m doubling our hot wings order. Plus, I heard Mel’s bringing a chocolate fountain. So we’re hoping to see lots of new faces at the party. Anyone and everyone is invited. Even the boys. It’s the one place you can be this Sunday where you can make fun of a player’s haircut or the way he puts his hand on his hip every time he stands on the sidelines.
So, like I said last February, “If you’re on Twitter and you’re sitting around Sunday confused … or bored … or just seeking a laugh between plays, look for us on #FootballForWomen. It’s sort of like #shitgirlssay, football-style. And don’t be afraid to put in your (Kick it through the thing!! Kick it through the thing!!) two cents.”
GOOOOOO, FOOTBALL GUYS!
My favorite part of all of this was our texts about using football terms in the invite. We’re a good pair. Now let’s get our facemasks on and get ready for the curtain call….errrr… the coin toss. 🙂
Go ahead, Mel. Feel free to quote my stupidity so people know who they’re really dealing with here. 🙂
I’ll be tweeting but I’m such a huge 49er fan that I might not have time to tweet about haircuts and such. But maybe…
We accept serious comments, too. That’s where Mel at AccordingToMags comes in. 🙂
See you tomorrow!
I’m planning on throwing my sick self down a ski slope tomorrow,but look forward to checking out the hashtag after.
