#30: Football food 🥨
This week, we're watching some throwback TV and eating dip. Also, some romcoms for your movie radar and a Black History Month quiz.
My dad is the biggest Philadelphia Eagles fan I know. In fact, if you know someone who’s an Eagles fan, they are probably obnoxiously obsessed with the Eagles. Something about the chemistry of Philly creates seriously dedicated football fans.
Needless to say, my whole family is anxiously awaiting this Sunday, when the Eagles and the Chiefs play in the Super Bowl. I don’t care about the Super Bowl, but I really care about my dad getting to see another Eagles Super Bowl win.
It’s funny how we can care about things through the people we love. Even though we don’t derive joy from something, we can easily generate an opinion because we know it will make a loved one happy.
So if you need me Sunday night, I will be sitting in front of the TV, downing some Buffalo chicken dip, anxiously picking my cuticles in hopes that the Eagles pull another win.
