Give me a book of football trivia and a fake fire, and I'm yours.

Nate sent me this article today. Now, I am not the target audience--I actually enjoy watching football (I'm normally reading at the same time, though), and I am a huge proponent of the accompanying drinking/eating (for some reason, I always want Miller Light--I know, bad beer!--and nachos during the game).

Just this past weekend in Vegas, I had a great time watching the Pats game (during which I drank Miller Light and ate chips and salsa).

But even as someone who likes football, I cannot imagine how anyone could possibly take this article's advice seriously. This is my absolute favorite part:

Have a special "date night." Start off with a romantic candlelight dinner, followed by sitting by the fire and sharing a football book. If you don't have a fireplace, you can download a fireplace onto your computer monitor and have it crackling away while you read the book to each other. After you have gone over a chapter, have a Q&A. For every answer one of you gets correct, you two kiss... you get the picture, don't you?

I REALLY want to see what happens when someone suggests this "date night." (Quotation marks indicate heavy irony.) Who needs a restaurant or a movie when you've got a crackling e-fire and a romantic book of football minutiae?

HILARIOUS!! If I remember correctly, you are also a fan of baking brownies for football games. Or at least you did for a certain superbowl party senior year.

On a totally different note, can you email me if you have any good vegetarian recipes? I'd like to cook for one in the near future.

Wait...I made brownies? I seriously don't remember that at all. Where did we watch the game?

And I will email you some recipes. Who is this vegetarian you're cooking for, hmmm???

Thank you ahead of time for the recipes!
And you and Joanna definitely baked something. Since the Giants were in the superbowl we had a little get together at my house. You don't recall this at all?
