Thanks to Grammy and Papa, all the little Slaviks were decked out in their NY Giants finest for the Superbowl on Sunday. Nate pulled out an oldie-but-goody to wear - his #10 Eli Manning jersey (thanks Oma). Luke was more excited about the fact that Daddy was wearing his favorite number than anything else!
We were so happy to be able to share the Superbowl with some other northern (non-New England!) transplants. But because the game starts so late and our kids are in bed usually by 8p, we stayed at the party until halftime, drove home, did the fastest baths on record, got the boys in bed by 9p, and then watched the rest of the Superbowl on DVR. We turned off all the phones and computers so we wouldn't be tempted to peek or be reachable to victory revelers before we'd reached the end of the game on our time!
True, when watching the Superbowl on DVR, you miss the all-important commercials. But it was a small price to pay to see Nate as quietly estatic as he could be when the Giants pulled off the victory.
So now we hit that sports lull when football ends, lacrosse hasn't quite begun, and baseball is a couple of months away. Good time to cheer for high school wrestling! Good luck this week to my Coach brother and the Meade (MD) High School varsity team as they head into the end of their regular season ranked #19 in the state!
