Super Bowl Blogs

Besides Celebrity Foods employees and past employees, it seems that A LOT of America is blogging about the upcoming Super Bowl XL. I thought I’d share with you the “official” and “semi-official” Super Bowl XL Blogs.
 
 
Backay’s Xtra Large Blog
 
Actor, writer, and comedian Nick Bakay’s blog, “Backay’s Xtra Large Blog” is hilarious.
His description on his Super Bowl experience says it all.
 
“I’m not in Detroit, I’m just like most of you: Sitting on a couch in my lucky gamederpants”.
 
Check out his blog at:

My favorite post excerpts from it so far:
 
On the NFL Network’s running promotions –
 
“Is the collective weight of the Rolling Stones over or under one of Jerome Bettis’ thighs?””Am I allowed to start eating all day now, or do I have to wait until Sunday?”
 
 

SuperBowl.com Super Blog


Live Super Bowl XL through the blogging of NFL.com writers like Gill Brandt, who writes about visiting with past players and coaches, Pat Kirwan, who shares his conversations he’s had with nearly at least one person from every NFL-related nitch of people, and Vic Carucci, who reflects on the emotions and personal experiences had during the day by him and many.
