Super Souper Bowl “How-To”

super souper bowl

Super Souper Bowl Sunday

Game on for Falcon & Patriot fans – as well as football followers across the country! Many have plans to gather with family and friends to share good food, laughs, and perhaps a bit of opposing team rivalry. While some are focused on the traditional model of super bowl – others will take a bit different track and spend efforts on the souper bowl of caring. Some will do both!

Everyone loves a fun time. We find reasons to celebrate centered around our interests, passions, culture and heritage. Not to be a downer in the midst of frivolity, but there is another side to this particular picture. It includes those who are not wondering which team might win the game, but rather from where their next meal might come.

That’s the end game for which this post is headed  – with a little rhyme in the middle for fun effect – and a totally unscientific poll at then end – because really, life is a mish-mosh most days, and occasionally RhymeLovingWriter™ goes with the flow.

Super Bowl

What I know about football could fit into a thimble. What I know about the Falcons and the Patriots could fit into about half of a thimble (well, maybe two-thirds since Inflategate). Never fear though readers, I count on you to leave comments below with your opinions and preferences to fill in details (civility appreciated).

Although my son-in-law doesn’t have a dog in this fight, I should have had him write up some statistics because he is a walking encyclopedia of sports knowledge. One day I plan to be linking to HIS blog. Then you’ll see.

Just to keep it magnanimous at this point – may the best team win! You can weigh in by taking the poll at the end of this post (please do)! For now though – how about a rhyming interlude?

I’ve fashioned this rhyming with sweet double-timing
while nodding to industry built on a sport
each side runs for tackles, still others raise hackles
when their team is losing, bent all out of sorts
~ ~ ~ ~
we watch teams while playing to background ‘hurraying’
and winners earn trophies to wear as fine rings,
still poor-folk left wanting with hunger so daunting
give chance to remember some important things
~ ~ ~ ~
while leisure holds ‘funning’, disparity stunning
arouses to action for neighbor and friend
donate if you’re able to some empty table
as keeper of brother you’d like to attend
~ ~ ~ ~
it isn’t or/either (though some prefer neither)
give dollars to sport or give dollars to poor
do both as your choosing so no one’s left losing
when none are left hungry – a win/win for sure

Souper Bowl of Caring

This was my goal (post in site) – to share about a movement near and dear to my heart. No preaching, but some facts to highlight a worthy cause. If you’ve already heard of the Souper Bowl of Caring, you get a chance to weigh in on that below!

Actually, everything you need or want to know about them can be found here, at their web site. The mission, their history, the annual donation totals – for your purview and response. My most favorite thing about the program is that money collected is distributed locally to a charity chosen by the people making the donations (with intent to end hunger uppermost).
