Super Bowl Sunday: Links, Ads, Food, and Bingo

Super Bowl Sunday is finally here. The Super Bowl is the most-watched annual sporting event in the world, and across the country, people are making bets on who will win, getting food ready, stocking up on beer, and preparing for a good party. Read on for all the Super Bowl goods, from Super Bowl ads and commercial Bingo, great recipes for Super Bowl Sunday, and more.

First, the food.

One of my favorite recipes comes from Frank’s Red Hot sauce: Buffalo Chicken Dip.

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup FRANK’S® REDHOT® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce or FRANK’S® REDHOT® Buffalo Wings Sauce
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch dressing
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken.
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or your favorite shredded cheese

    PREHEAT oven to 350°F.

    COMBINE all ingredients in a 1-quart baking dish.

    BAKE 20 min. or until mixture is heated through; stir. Serve with crackers or vegetables.

    For the Win has a Classic Buffalo Wing recipe — fried, guys, not baked.

  • 12 whole chicken wings, cleaned and cut into flats and drums
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce
    Celery salt (optional)

  • Oil for frying
  • Blue cheese or ranch dressing

    In a deep-fryer, dutch oven or large pot, heat the oil to about 375 degrees or medium-high heat.

    Fry wings in oil until golden brown and cooked through, about 12-15 minutes depending on size.

    While the wings are frying, melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add hot sauce and stir. Add celery salt or lemon pepper to taste, if desired. For spicier wings, up the ratio of hot sauce to butter. For milder wings, do the opposite.

    When the wings are done, transfer them to a plate covered with paper towels to drain off excess oil. Then toss them in the wing sauce and serve with blue cheese or ranch.

    Life in Yellow has Super Bowl sandwiches, coined Crack Sandwiches on Pinterest:

  • 1 package Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
  • 1 package thin sliced deli ham
  • 1 package sliced swiss cheese
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 3 Tbsp dijon or spicy brown mustard
  • 1 Tbsp worchestershire sauce
  • 3 tsp poppy seeds

    Without pulling the rolls apart, cut the whole sheet of them down the middle (so you have a sheet of “tops” and a sheet of “bottoms”). Line a 9×13 pyrex dish with foil and place the bottoms in the pan.

    Melt the butter in the microwave and whisk in all other ingredients (minus the ham/cheese). Pour HALF of the mixture over the bottoms of the rolls in the pan.

    Layer the ham across the rolls, then the cheese slices. Put the tops on the sandwiches and drizzle the other half of the butter mixture on top.

    Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 20 mins. (You can make these a few hours ahead, drizzled and all, and refridgerate until time to bake…then I just add a couple minutes’ bake time to compensate for how cold they are). Cut apart after uncovering from foil and serve HOT!

    And finally, from Spoonful, Pizza Pinwheels!

  • Flour for dusting dough
  • 1 pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce, plus more for serving
  • 1 cup fontina or mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup cooked ground sausage or hamburger
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

    Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper for even baking and easy cleanup.

    Dust a work surface with flour. Place room temperature dough on the flour and flip it to coat both sides. Roll the dough into a 13″ wide circle or rectangle.

    Spoon sauce evenly over the entire pizza dough. Top with cheese, cooked sausage, and oregano.

    Using your hands, roll the dough starting from the bottom and working up forming a roll. With a serrated knife, slice the dough into 1″ sections. Place each section on the baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until firm and lightly golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving and serve with additional marinara or ranch dressing for dipping.

    The Federalist has 5 stupid myths you’ll probably hear at your Super Bowl party.

    The Wall Street Journal calls Peyton Manning “Mr. Annoying”. Ouch.

    An ape says the Seahawks will win.

    In typical fashion, Obama has to find a way to make Super Bowl Sunday all about him.

    Live Action’s Lila Rose penned a depressing, but important, column about how the entertainment world condones abuse:

    Your pre-game event options in the New York area include performances by Grammy-nominated singer Robin Thicke and Grammy-winner Jay-Z.

    Yes, that’s the Robin Thicke, who joins Jay-Z in making themes of violence and rape into catchy tunes. Thicke has been under fire recently for his own “rapey” lyrics from hit song “Blurred Lines,” singing, “I hate these blurred lines” and “I know you want it.” Critics complain that in the song, Thicke’s fictional female sex target is being told she wants hair-pulling, spanking, and anal sex – though she never consents to it. Recently, a group of sexual assault survivors at Project Unbreakable came out with an online photo essay exhibit, demonstrating that Thicke’s lyrics Thicke’s chosen lyrics are hauntingly the same words used by their rapists.

    And at the famed halftime show, while Peyton Manning and Richard Sherman (and over 80,000 of their rival fans) are thawing before the final half, Bruno Mars will take the stage.

    He has his own “rape” song he’s become famous for: “Gorilla,” a man singing about rough sex with a woman who he claims, like Thicke, “wants it.” Mars adds in, “She can’t run.”
