    I don't know enough NFL fans to put together a decent superbowl party nor do I know anyone who's having one.

    I will probably subject Mrs. Tranplanner to the event...she can always knit or something

    Small get together with family....nothing too big. I'll be at my parents rooting for "those damn Patriots." Such a long way from the days of rooting for the Pats when they were terrible, lucky to win a couple of games a year....

    And Wes says "agahh, pfffts."

    Which translated, is GO PATS!

    The last few years, I've participated in the Ski 4 Women. It's a local ski event to raise funds for a women's shelter. It's more of a social event than ski race. Your costume is a lot more important than your results.

    This year, I'm not sure what I'm doing as we don't have enough snow to hold the event and I'm not interested in running the course.

    I don't think it will be a party, but plenty of pizza and beer will be on hand.

    I don't care all that much about this game. However, I will be cheering for the Patriots mainly because their attitude and demeanor remind me a lot of my beloved San Antonio Spurs. The coaches are even a little similar in their style, although Popovich is more prone to getting pissed-off and ejected.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    No party, just my son and wife maybe at my in-laws house. GO PATS. I still remember when Sports Illustrated referred to them as the PATSY'S on the front cover so it is sweet to see them on top. However, I can understand some of the other football city concerns. Can you believe of the 39 Superbowls we will actually have been in 5 of them!

    Fly Eagles, Fly! (Gotta go for the underdog)

    I will be working the federal operations center this week as part of my super bowl duties. Otherwise, I am just staying out of the way of downtown since the game will be going on and will be insane. I had thought about volunteering and being at the game, but I didn't want to deal with the out-of-towners. The town is super bowl crazy here so maybe I will go to some the NFL sanctioned events.

    I'll probably be in an airplane coming home from Montreal. Might make it home in time to see the end of the game.

    This Steeler fan is cheering for the Patriots. I have a lot of respect for this franchise. I dig their QB (University of Michigan) Tom Brady.

    We Steelers plan to catch and pass the Pats next year. Until then......

    (Interesting fact: Back in the 1940's the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles formed a single team....."Steagles".....I think because of a lack of players due to WWII.)

    Terrell Owens is mouthy and good. I want to see him shut up. I do like Donovan McNabb.

    Exciting party at Bear's den, with Bear huddling in blanket, drinking soda pop or water. Yum.

    Good lord. Superbowl is almost more important that Christmas to my husband's family. Every sits with their pool sheets spread in a semi circle around them so they can check them periodically. And then the talk during the most important part - the commercials! sigh.

    A co-worker is having a party... I am bringing a dish to pass and a date. The Eagles will win this year... it will happen, and it will be great. (did I mention that this co-worker will have the hot tub open, and warmed up with a TV set up outside so we can watch the game)

    (yes, a guilty secret comes out of the closet )

    No big plans for SB -- most likely watch it at a friend's place (big TV!) but don't really care about either team....except the commercials!

    Has anyone heard about what types of ads we can expect to see?

    Shoo-fly Pie:

    Shoo Fly pie is extremely popular in our area. In fact, it's probably the most popular icon of the PA Dutch area. Everyone has their own little secret, use this molasses, that butter, etc. The trick to a good pie is definitely in the molasses. These are the recipes I came up with. I have not tried them all, see what you think.

    Crust

    2 C. flour
    1 tbsp. salt
    2/3 C. Butter Flavored Crisco,divided
    5-7 tbsp. Ice water
    1 egg
    Crumbs

    4 C.flour
    2 C. sugar
    1 tbsp. baking soda
    1 C. butter or margarine
    Filling

    2 C. unsulphured molasses
    2 c. warm water
    1 egg
    2 tsp. baking soda
    Heat oven to 400 degrees.

    Crust: Combine flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in 1/3 c. Butter Flavor Crisco using pastry blender (or 2 knives) until flour blends into fine crumbs. Cut in remaining 1/3 c. Crisco until coarse crumbs form.

    Stir in egg.

    Sprinkle with water, one tbsp.. at a time. Toss lightly with fork until dough forms a ball. Press between hands to form two 5-6 in. "pancakes".

    Flour rolling surface and rolling pin lightly. Roll one "pancake" Into circle. Trim 1 in. larger than upside-down 9-inch pie plate. Fold into quarters. Unfold and press into pie plate. Flute. repeat for second pie shell.

    Crumbs: Combine flour, sugar and baking soda in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender (or 2 knives) until crumbs form. Set aside.

    Filling: Combine molasses, water, egg and baking soda in large bowl.

    Beat at low speed of electric mixer until blended. Add half the crumb mixture to filling. Beat at low speed just until blended. Pour into unbaked pie shells, filling a little over half full (you may not use all the filling). Sprinkle remaining crumbs over both pies.

    Bake at 400 degrees for 10 min. Reduce oven to 375'F. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on cooling rack. Place each pie inside separate plastic bag. Fasten open end with twistie. Cool completely on counter. Makes two 9-inch pies.
    You probably don't want the details on Scrapple But it is yummy, in a different kind of way.

    A gathering with:

    My wife, brother, brother's gal (Pats fan ), dog, some beers, a grill and some food for that grill.

    ... I really do not care who wins since my team(s) are out.

    You definitely DON'T want to read the ingredients on a package of scrapple (it refers to "snouts") but believe it or not, it is delish! I spent the first 12 years of my life in Baltimore and it was really popular there.
