VTIM Super Bowl Week: Need Your Q's

Alright folks. The time has come for the biggest sporting event of the year. This little sports fan has got herself a doozy of a week lined up, posts already written and auto scheduled ready to go for you next week. 

You know I'm totally lying, I'm so unorganized that my 2nd grade teacher would hold parent teacher conferences monthly to discuss how messy my desk was. While other students got praised for good grades, congeniality and polished desks. I was consistently nagged and reprimanded for nothing but my desk. It had pencil shavings, granola crumbs and 49 pieces of looseleaf shoved in there without a care. 






Dear Miss Watkins, learn to accept students and try cultivating their creativity once in a while. You shoulda stuck that desk in the Louvre, it was a work of art, ya jerk. 
  
Ok so no, I don't actually have posts already written and scheduled. But I do have ideas written down for each day of the week, and for me that is quite the achievement. Next week I shall dub, VTIM Super Bowl Week (crazy original, I know). 









VTIM Super Bowl Week will include everything you need to know from the players, to the teams, to the drinking, to the rules for Super Bowl XLVIII. For the record, that is Super Bowl 48, I wish we would get rid of this roman numeral crap. Same with Celsius instead of Fahrenheit. Sorry Canadians, but I was confused the whole time I was in Toronto. 

Next week will also include a special Fan Friday: Super Bowl edition linkup, complete with a pretty sweet blogger co-host I adore and I know you do too. 

So with all of that said, I've got a request for you. Some of my favorite comments left on Fan Friday are when y'all ask me sports-related questions. For example, Carissa asked a few weeks ago... 

Q: What does that mean when the announcers say "pick 6"
A: A pick 6 is when the defense intercepts the quarterback’s throw, and runs it all the way back for a touchdown and gets 6 points. Just a pick is when the other team intercepts the ball but doesn’t manage to get in for the touchdown!



So that is what I want from you today. I want your questions. What do you not understand during football games. There is no dumb question, I promise. I will answer them for you next Friday, in a special Q&A session of Fan Friday! Maybe in VLOG form, but maybe not. It depends how fat my face looks when I sit down in front of the camera. 



Linking up with Whitney
I heard this song on Canada's Top 20 Countdown, yet can't find it on iTunes here in America... Luckily it was on Grooveshark! Hope you like it as much as I did.

  1. Oh oh oh I've got one! Can the Super Bowl end in a tie? I'm guessing not, but what are the OT rules for the big game?

  2. Think you need to do who started the 12th man Seattle or Texas A&M lol. Funny I was actually thinking of doing bunch of super bowl post next week. Reading your post sparked some ideas for me.

  4. ok i'm so excited for next week!!! i need to think of a question i know i have probably 10000. my question is what do you think goes on in the players heads before a game? I guess you can't personally answer that. Why are football games so long? no im serious.

  7. I am so excited that I stumbled across this blog just in time for the Super Bowl! I'm even more excited that so many ladies are so excited to learn about the game as my friends filed their names during the last Super Bowl party I attended. I mean.. c'mon. I can't wait for next week and I am definitely linking up because next friday I am posting my favorite game day recipes!

  8. I've listened to your song 3 times in a row now. Aka, I like it a lot :) Also, I'm looking forward to a super bowl party this year where I can actually know what I'm talking about!

  9. we had a pick-six in the Rose Bowl this year and it was so exciting..... and then we lost. :(

  10. Question: How many types of "backers" are there? Or is there only one, and different teams make up different names for "backers" depending on what schemes they run? For example: I thought you could only be a linebacker, but I've heard the term Devilbacker, SAMbacker, Spur linebacker, Will backer...and so on and so forth. Yay for Q&A!!!

  11. My enthusiasm for the Super Bowl waned a little bit after my team lost, but let's face it, I'm still excited. Can't wait to see what you come up with for Super Bowl Week!

  12. How do I get rid of Erin Andrews and/or Pam Oliver and take their job? TBH though, I'm pretty well versed in football so I understand the game. I know several of the penalty signals, but maybe a post on those?

  13. I have the hardest time differentiating a "holding" call or a "pass interference" call vs. normal contact. Is there an easy way for spotting them? Something about if the defender touches the receiver and doesn't look at the ball or something? I get confused...

  14. I see "Super Bowl" and I just wanna scream go hawks!!! 12th man loud and proud! I'm a diehard fan... Obviously :)

  15. Do people other than Christians actually like the Broncos? What meds is Sherman supposed to take, but clearly forgets to take them everyday? When was the last time each team won the SB?
    Can we call the game the big soup bowl (a student called it that once it was my fav)

    ReplyDelete
  16. my question is... is Richard Sherman the best? and should or should I not talk about him?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Can't wait to see your Super Bowl Week posts. Especially the part about the drinking. I need a good SB drinking game. Hook a girl up ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Cant wait to see what you have for next week posts. Have a great weekend

  19. Is it just me or have the announcers been saying "pick six" a lot more this year than they have in the past?

    ReplyDelete
  20. My first question is how the Seahawks played like such crap in the Championships, but still won *cough Wilson sucked cough*. My second question is - what is a two point conversion? I don't always understand the points...
