Did I mention that it’s game week?

You may have noticed that we are pretty excited around here for game week. I’m sure you are too.

There is so much unknown and so much to look forward too. I can’t wait for Saturday to get a look at what this team can do.

I’m really trying to prep myself for all things needed for game day. I’ve got the gear and the channel ready to stream, but now I’ve got to figure out the food.

Little smokies are a must for my children, but I can’t figure out what else I want to have. This is important. I can’t properly do my job as a fan and yell at the tv if I don’t have the right foods.

What do you have to have for game day?

On to the flakes.
