Super Bowl: \"Super Bowl Sunday is
such a prominent part of the American cultural landscape that maybe
only a few egghead historians (or a Mormon) would even stop to wonder
how in the world 'Sunday' and 'Super Bowl' ever wound up in the same
phrase at all.\" But this blogger (and he actually wrote an entire book
on the subject) does stop to wonder about
\"Putting the Sunday in the Super Bowl.\" It wasn't just a day to fill,
he instead postulates that \"sport itself was made sacred.\" And
regarding Mormons: \"... they may not cheer quite as loudly on Sunday as
some other people. At least until Austin Collie catches a pass.\"
Sunday sports: \"What is it we should tell our young
members of the church when they ask if it's OK to play sports on
Sunday?\" So provocatively asks this post in regards to
\"Sports on Sunday.\" And the answers are varied, as illustrated by the
comments with some wondering if it constitutes work and some even
wondering where the Sabbath on Sunday originated. Interesting thoughts!
Super food: Whether you're having a Super Bowl party or just want to enjoy some snack food, here are some recipes for
\"Superbowl Party Fun Food\" using a slow cooker! Try the cocktail
meatballs, the chicken artichoke dip and even the chocolate chip cookie
football, all made in slow cooker fashion. Yum!
