Football fun in the midst of the mania

Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

Who doesn't know that tomorrow, Sunday February 2, 2020 is Super Bowl Sunday? Many parties are planned, including two here on Active Rain -- join Anna Banana's costume party then head over for tasty recipe treats at Carol Williams' Food Fest.

A couple of weeks prior to Super Bowl, the Vikings and 49ers played a qualifying game, and fun abounded then, too. Our good friend Sally, of team Sally K. & David L. Hanson, suggested she and I have a friendly bet. If the 49ers won, she'd send me a sample of Wisconsin cheese; if the Vikings won, I'd send her a California wine. Luckily for me, the 49ers were victorious and are playing tomorrow.

Wheel of Wisconsin baby Swiss cheese

One of the benefits of living at Pacifc Place in San Francisco is our security team. They receive our packages, notify us of their arrival and keep them for us until we can pick them you.

You can imagine my delight when I found the notice tucked in my mailbox. Even more delight when my husband and I opened the box to find a very generous wheel of fine Wisconsin baby Swiss cheese.

We've enjoyed it; shared it with our granddaughter (who had some for breakfast this morning!) and will take some to share with friends tomorrow at a Chinese New Year party. It will go well with dim sum, and blending of cultures!

Sorry, Sally, no wine is heading your way, but some San Francisco trinkets are.

Playing, having fun and cementing friendships works on Active Rain, just as it does in our "real world."

May both teams play good football tomorrow, and may we all have fun with it.

Have you tried organic and/or biodynamic California wines, Nina Hollander - lack of pesticides might make all the difference. Of course, there are plenty of other choices, so you're not terribly deprived.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson - it's hard to re-write half a post, but this one about you was worth the effort!

Hi Lottie Kendall - I knew you had a bet going. Looks like a beautiful wheel of cheese.  By the time Sally tried to get me to bet on the game between the Packers and the Seahawks, the writing was on the wall. No cheese from the Pacific Northwest. :) Go 49ers!

I wish that I could count on my team to win me some cheese, but I am sure that if I had a bet with Sally K. & David L. Hanson I would have to be sending something to Wisconsin each and every year, haha.

Lottie Kendall hi Lottie.. it's the tannin in the wines that gave me migraine-like headaches. And at this point... doesn't matter much... I pretty much gave up drinking alcohol 10 years ago except for the occasional glass of champagne.

An occasional glass of champagne or prosecco is a nice way to celebrate Nina Hollander

Hello Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - the Pacific Northwest might not have a lot of cheese, but you sure have fabulous smoked salmon! And blueberries!

Hi Brian England - most years I would be sending out the treats; this one happens to be the 49er's year-first time since the glory days of Montana/Rice/Clark, Young, Walsh, Seifert....

Kathy Streib - I agree, Sally is a wonderful ambassador for Wisconsin!

That cheese looks wonderful, Lottie.  I remember a few years ago, a relative who lives in Tillamook, Oregon, brought me cheese from their area.  It was amazing!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - on a car trip to the Pacific Northwest when I was a child, I discovered Tillimook blue cheese and have loved it ever since. So many delicious cheeses from all sorts of areas.

Lottie, your team did very well yesterday and thankfully was a good game versus a blowout on either side.

Thanks, Joan Cox - a game like yesterday's is what I always hope for in the Super Bowl, whether or not that happens is another story. The Chiefs had a great come-from-behind surge and are to be congratulated.
