    Post what you're doing or cooking or whatever.

    I am pulling for the Ravens and some good commercials. And food. Can't forget that.

    I posted this in the Cooking Thread before this was started, but here's what I'll be making for Sunday.

    Oven Roasted Carnitas

    4lb Boston Butt/Shoulder Roast
    1 Medium White Onion
    1 Whole Cinnamon Stick
    1 Bay Leaf
    3-4 Cloves of Garlic

    Rub
    1Tbsp Spicy Seasoned Salt
    1Tbsp Black Pepper
    1Tbsp Oregano
    1Tbsp Chili Powder
    1Tbsp Cumin

    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350*
    Cut pork into 5-6 large chunks.
    Combine all rub ingredients and rub all over the meat.
    Place the meat in a large, heavy pot (I use this heavy duty cast iron combo cooker) with the cinnamon stick, bay leaf, garlic and onion. Ideally, the pot is large enough so that the meat is in a single layer. Add enough water to almost, but not entirely, cover the meat.

    Put the pot in the oven, uncovered, and braise for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Stir the meat just a few times while it cooks. You’ll know the pork is done when it’s really tender, slightly browned and most of the liquid is gone
    Remove the pork from the oven. Put the meat on a cutting board and cut or shred it with your hands into thin strips.
    Remove the cinnamon stick and bay leaf from the pot. Add the shredded meat back to the pot and return it to the oven.
    Roast the meat, mixing occasionally, until the meat is as dark and crispy as you like it.

    I called Baltimore, but picked Green Bay for NFC. Whatevs. I'm going to my friends house in the middle of Lower Asscrackylvania to watch it, making sweet potato chips which are to die for. I'm still too hurt to play in the game, good riddance it's fucking cold and hideous outside right now. Let them be stupid and freeze their hands into claws for a week.

    I'd prefer the 49ers to win, but I've got a feeling the Ravens might spring an upset.

    My buddy hosts an American themed party for the game. Red cups and Budweiser (it's basically the only available beer over here) with hot dogs and pizza. Unfortunately I might have to miss out due to my return to work.

    I hope both teams get nuked before they play because my FB is 50% people from the Bay Area, 20% NOVA, so my feed will be exploding.

    Also, just to get this off my chest: People who proudly say they "only watch the Superbowl for the commercials" are everything that is wrong with humanity.

    I just want to see Ray Lewis use his body like a battering ram the entire game and destroy people. What's he got to lose? If he injures himself, he goes into retirement and he can just chill (from '93 till...).

    We watched a very cool fireworks display from the front porch last night. Say what you want about the NFL, but they do put on a hell of a show.

    My girlfriend and I are headed to my sister's bf's house for the game. He has a theater room with a huge projector screen and surround sound so it is a kick ass place to watch a game.

    I'm making these: Alton Brown's Buffalo Wings

    Hell yes.

    I don't care who wins, I just want to eat a ton of wings and drink some beer and NOT watch the shitty overhyped commercials.

    Speaking of lots of wings and beer, they should move President's Day to the Monday after Superbowl.

    Or just move the Super Bowl to a Saturday? Why don't they do that?

    A three day weekend is always better, though.

    My son has a baseball skills assessment Sunday at 2 pm. It's for the draft. I love my son. I don't much love football, but I enjoy the Super Bowl. Yes I am a bit torn.

    I'll make bacon wrapped jalapeños for the day. And drink.

    The game doesn't even start until 6:30. Does his assessment last for more than 4 hours?

    I hope he dies on the field. He's a piece of shit, potentially responsible for the deaths of two people, and at the very least initially covering it up, hiding evidence, then snitching when he was caught. Hence, not a Ray Lewis fan, and hence not a Baltimore fan.

    I haven't decided if the Superbowl is my last sport's hurrah, or if my personal ban on sports has already started.

    Spaghetti that night, once I get home from work.

    This is a terrific idea.


    I have no plans for the game, although since I am on Reserve duty this weekend I can stay on base and watch it there. 50 bucks for food and keg beer...although I don't really want to shell out money being on a tight budget for the moment.

    Pulling for San Fran of course. I loathe the Ravens ever since that jerk off Art Modell dicked us over and moved the Browns to Baltimore. Still can't believe the talk of him getting into the Hall of Fame...same goes for Ozzie Newsome for telling us to just get over it already. So it's a bit personal I guess.

    It wasn't just Modell's fault. The city refused to give him any money for a new stadium. He was going bankrupt. So he moved the team to an area that would support him. Art is litterally the reason you can watch games on TV today. And that's why he should be in the hall of fame. It has nothing to do with him moving a team out of one of the shittiest city in the US. How old were you when the team moved? Like 6? Build a bridge, get over it, and stop being bitter over a business decision that you had 0 part in. The three years without a team had to be much more peaceful than watching the current train wreck that happens every Sunday there now.

    Would you mind sharing the recipe you use? Those sound delicious.
