getting ready for game day.

The lovely Melisa at the Feather Report has put together a fabulous outfit for one of her readers, Sarah. Lucky Miss Sarah is heading to the Championship NCAA Football Game in beautiful Pasadena, CA! Not only is the outfit awesome (as they always are Melisa) everything is under $100 - TOUCH DOWN FEATHER REPORT!!!

Sarah is a lucky, lucky girl to be going to this game. I'm jealous! I'd love to be there to watch the mayhem unfold. #1 University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE) vs. #2 University of Texas Longhorns. As you all know I'm a fan of the University of Alabama but I bet this is going to be a game for the masses. There is so much hype around this game that a local car dealership is actually offering a chance to get a car for FREE through the outcome of this game. If Alabama holds Texas to scoring ZERO points in the game - you get your car for free!!! I wonder how many yahoos will take this chance - I bet there is no "return" policy on this. I for one am not a gambling woman so I would NOT take this chance. We shall see. I don't know if we can hold TX to zero points, Colt McCoy and his Longhorns are a really good team, but I hope we have what it takes to make a win happen for Alabama. We have a great, great legacy to uphold. Let's hope Coach Paul Bear Bryant is up there pushing us along!

In similar news... Hold on to your seats this is going to be a Jerry Springer explanation: M's brother's girlfriend's parents are heading to the Championship Game (told you) - we were all so jealous to hear this. Not only are they hitting up the game but they also took a week to go to Vegas and other spots along the way. His girlfriend currently attends the University of Alabama and they have gone to many games this year, again LUCKY!  I should have added this to my list of goals for 2010 - that I WANT TO ATTEND AN ALABAMA HOME GAME THIS YEAR! We have been discussing going to their first home game which I believe is against Penn State. I would be so excited to witness this. And take it all in.

I guess it's time for me to start thinking about what Tailgate treat I want to make for the game Thursday night. Not sure what it will be, but it will be good! Maybe some Mac N' Cheese with a fun something on the grill - then again the weather here has been FREEZING so I don't know that I want to do that to M. He's the grill master.

So if you're into the NCAA who are you rooting for in the National Championship?? Texas or Alabama? I'm a huge fan of the SEC and happy to see most of the teams did well this year! It makes us all look great!

So here's to the Championship game - all I can say is ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!!!!

Pin It!

Well if it was UK vs. Alabama, I would have to say C-A-T-S, Cats, Cats, Cats!! But since we just lost in the most boring game EVER to Clemson (and then our coach quit), I am ALL for Alabama. BFF went there for her master's and so I do have a soft spot for them. Here's to hoping they have Longhorn for dinner!!
And how are you going to have a football tailgate without chicken wings in the crockpot?? C'mon now.. :D

totally cheering for bama!! unless it's florida, this UGA girl has got to cheer for the SEC =)

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

YAYYYY! Thank you ladies!

Allyson - trust me I've had wings SO much in this past year (there is a blog about the food I've made) Wings, wing flavored dip, wing flavored pizza... etc! I was trying to switch it up. (That being said I may dump some wings sauce in my mac n' cheese SO tasty!). SO many coaches are just deserting their teams this year.. it's crazy! I guess money talks and BS walks!

I will say my fave SEC teams are AL, Arkansas and UGA!

Thanks for the support ladies!!!

Hey! Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for becoming a follower!!! I just started following you too.

(Hope that doesn't sound weird, sometimes the term follower creeps me out)

Beverly @ The Buzz said...

We're big UT Vols fans, but root for the SEC whenever Tennessee's not playing. It's hard to actually make the words come out of my mouth, but Roll Tide!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

That's the way you have to do it Bev :)

Allyson said...

You've got a little something on my blog to get you in the spirit for game day.

If I were a sculptor and I had to build the Statue of Liberty, I think I'd know the perfect model.


Beautiful blog, Sagi girl.

You are hysterical with your love of all things wings, Kelly! I feel this way about the Giants. Except maybe not this season. This season it didn't bother me that I didn't get to go to any games. I hope you get to go to an Alabama game next season...tailgating is so much fun!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Melisa - I adore the Manning brothers so I do like the Giants as well. There aren't too many teams I could say that I out right HATE but there are quite a few I will talk smack about (mostly because their fans talk smack about my favorite teams). Girl... I adore wings, if I could legally marry a chicken wing M might have some competition. Thankfully we can all play nice together on a regular basis! Wings and PIzza are my life and diet downfall!

Beth said...

I would love to go to that game! But I don't like either of those teams. Go Hogs!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Beth - you're an SEC fan now... you're supposed to root for us!!! ;) If one team looks good - we all look good!
