    Wow! Those numbers are insane! We didn’t have guac or wings but we sure contributed to the beer and popcorn numbers!

    Congrats on the win! If my Colts had to lose to anyone, I’m happy it was the Saints.

    Great looking food Ryan!

    Now you know THIS southern gal is in that number!!! Of course, it’s been totally WILD down here for 2 weeks with the Who Dat Nation anyway, of whom this family has been a proud part of only all of our lives… BUT a win was just icing on the king cake!!

    Who Dat? BELIEVE DAT! Wooohoooo!

    Super Bowl is the 2nd biggest food consumption day – 2nd only to Thanksgiving – can y’all believe that? With a record viewing on this Super Bowl, the food consumed this year might have even surpassed TG!
