Since the favorite football team thread was getting so long, I thought I'd start a Super Bowl one. We know who the teams are, so I'm going with the Pats to win it. How about y'all? Then after the game's over, let's see what the favorite commercial is. My all-time favorite is the Mean Joe Green one, Bud has come up with some great ones-I loved the Clydesdales and the lizzards. I wonder how many people will be at sea when the game is played...sure wish I was one of them

I will be getting on the Navigator of the Seas Saturday for my 6th Superbowl cruise. I went on my first one in 2003 by accident when I saw a good deal on a 3nt NCL cruise. Not realizing it was Superbowl weekend. They showed the game and had tailgating food in the lounge. The next year my husband and I tried Superbowl weekend on a Carnival cruise 3nt. They showed the Superbowl in the main show lounge on big screen and brought in lots of tailgaiting food into the lounge. This year we have 20 of us going. I think it would be fun sometime to do it on one of the ships that has the big screens by the pool. Whether it's Princess, Carnival, or Disney.

That's a great idea, I think I'll try it for next year's super bowl.

Too bad we couldn't have done this for what has become the cruise-chat staff cruise!

I love the idea of a Superbowl cruise! The ultimate tailgate party, big screen, lots of fellow fans -- it's almost like being there, but better.

I'm already planning next years on the Grandeur of The Seas. Be happy to have you join us.

Dave-- We would have had the same problem of people with school kids. It always amazes me though how many people do take kids out of school. I was just reading an article though by a Travel Agent who struggled with whether she should take her children out of school. She decided the educational things they learned on the cruise was worth it. As a matter of fact--the article was in the Feb Cruise Travel magazine.

Give the kids a lesson on democracy; let them vote on it.

Penny, I already saw the winning commerical. It's the Bud lite for sure. My best cruising buddy sent it to me via e-mail. It's about two dogs. I hope it airs because.

One thing I am happy about is Fox is not allowing any political commercials for the Super Bowl, and that is all I'm going to say about that.

I always like the Bud commercials, probably because I am usually drinking a Bud product while watching the game. I am making Chicago-style Italian Beef sandwiches for the game. I even got some giardiniera made by Il Primo delivered today to use as the traditional garnish. I'll make my own Italian rolls too.

I always work superbowl Sunday. You'd be surprised how many wives are trying to get away from hubby's football buddies and ruckus. They go get on the computer and book cruises! I get to ask what the score is and get an update from clients. Never get to see it myself anymore.

Cheers, Neil

Neil, you definitely need to take a break, not that booking cruises wouldn't be a ball.
