|Sunday, February 5, 2012: In preparation for the Super Bowl XLVI (46), Chef Paula was in the Grand Galley at Gilbert Lodge preparing one of her specialty pizzas. She made the dough in a bread machine before spreading it out on a pizza pan. She used corn meal to give it a nice crunch and make the pizza interesting.|
|Meanwhile, the game started and was shown next to the
Grand Fireplace on a flat screen television.
GE (General Electric) had the best commercials because they were the most heart warming. Chevy had good commercials too as did Chrysler, with actor Clint Eastwood. Coca-Cola and Budweiser did well too.
The Madonna Half Time Show was well staged and performed.
|The pizza was ready at the end of the first quarter.
It was a cross between thin-crust and thick-crust. This one was a
pepperoni with olives and cheese.
Yes, beer and pizza were the specialty of the house that night.
The game was close right up to the end when the the New York Giants were victorious over the New England Patriots by a score of 21 to 17.
Even non-sports fans watched the Super Bowl.
|February 7, 2012 e-mail: Hi Mark - I just checked in on the GL blog, and looked over the February 5th Super Bowl posting. Very nice! What really amused me was your comment at the end of the page - "Never say kick-off to an old person." That was pretty funny! Keep up the great work - I always enjoy following the exploits of "Team Persons!" Doug in Wadena, MN.|
