So I thought I’d do some recommendations for those of us who aren’t watching the Super Bowl but who are stuck where everyone else is- or just recommendations period for a Winter Sunday. Then it sort of turned into a Super Bowl themed tag and includes books, movies, shows.
The whole nine years… which is a football thing right? Or golf? I don’t remember.
Pregame: When You Realize this Thing is Gonna Go all Day
There are a couple of good options for a movie binge that will last about the same time. The original Star Wars movies are a good bet. Plus they are bright and fun. Or heck even check back in on the prequels.
Patriots: You like them & People don’t even try to hide judging you
I enjoyed this story about a cursed girl who must win her way into a magical school. But there is a sense of with some people, “Now you’re reading middle-grade,” and “Aren’t you a little old for this?”
Rams: A book on your shelf that you know next to nothing about
The only thing I know about this book is that I need to control myself during the Book of the Month selections. Breath. You don’t need to get all three every month.
the Ref: Does football call them Umpires? No. It’s Ref’s and whose better at that than…
The Punisher. Season 2 is currently streaming on Netflix and while I’m still behind 🙁 He would definitely make any sporting game more interesting!
The Commercials: the Star of the Show
Never understood why people watched the game for commercials. They’ll be on-line and much discussed not long after or in most cases before but anyway…
I’m racing through this now and I can’t decide whose POV I’m enjoying more Nikolai, Nina or Zoya! Which was such a nice surprise for me that Zoya gets a POV. And I’m kind of borderline shipping her and Nikolai now 🙂 So I don’t know whose going to be the standout in the end. I love them all!
Half-Time Show: Oh my God! It’s not Over Yet
When you need a pick me up to get through the rest…
Switch to Derry Girls on Netflix. It’s a fast comedy absolutely full of energy that will make time absolutely fly!
The Replay: When you’re weirdly nostalgic and want to watch something about sports this weekend that’s not really about sports…
Ah, Jerry Macguire it’s technically about sports in that he’s an agent and his only client is a football star. Plus it’s got enough catch phrases for one hell of a drinking game 🙂 And if people ask you if you watched football this weekend you can still technically say yes as there’s some games in here!
MVP: Besides you for not killing anyone today?
Vasilisa Petronova because she’s generally awesome.
This whole series (including The Bear and the Nightingale and Winter of the Witch) is complete. The first 2 were 5 star reads for me and finishing it is my goal this weekend 🙂 It’s also a great winter read considering the setting and the role it plays in the series.
Bonus Drinking Games:
Take a drink every time Han calls Luke “kid.”
Every time Frank kills someone… (bonus every time Frank is hot!)
Every time Nikolai is charming or Nina mentions Matthias…
Every time Michelle swears in Derry Girls or you learn an Irish slang word!
Every time anyone says “Show me the Money!”
Caution you could definitely wind up the most drunk 🙂
Either way whatever you do or don’t do have a wonderful and safe time!

I’m so not into the game this year, for some reason. So these are helpful. 🙂 I think a Star Wars binge sounds SOOO much more fun! And yeah I don’t get watching for the commercials either. I mean, I hate commercials lol.
Derry Girls looks fun. And oh a good Star Wars drinking game (or Punisher for that matter) would so liven up an otherwise boring Sunday!
You can find most of the big commercials on-line before the game anyway so I never saw the point 🙂 Though I do love the movie trailers! Maybe we’ll get a Stranger Things or Star Wars 9? Fingers crossed!
Drink every time Frank moodily kills someone. Or just looks all moody! You might end up worse off that anybody else!
This is awesome 😂😂 I usually don’t mind watching the superbowl but I have no interest in either team this year!! I will probably bring a book and read during the game and then watch the commercials haha
My dogs hate how noisy everyone gets during the game so I’ll probably watch a loud movie or show with them! Have fun 🙂
Ha, i’m glad superbowl is not a thing over here, but your recommendations will defo come handy on any football week 😀 (Not sure when that is, but i’ll be prepared) 😀
Hahaha.. Love, love, love this!❤️❤️
Ha ha! I wish I HADN’T watched the game… What a huge disappointment… Just, all of it. Wish I’d seen this post first. I probably would have had a way better night! 😂
P. S. I love the Rams book being “something you know next to nothing about” SO TRUE! 😂😂 … But, I was still cheering for them! 😉
I kept planning on putting it on at some point but then I kept getting texts from friends and family complaining about the game I kind of figured it wasn’t going to be worth it. Then the usual text from my father disowning me 😉 and I knew the Patriots had won!
😂😂😂😂😂 Your father is a smart man. 😉🤣🤣
I swear half my liking the Patriots is because its such an easy way to annoy everyone I know!
Well, I can’t argue with that!…. I ALMOST hit unfollow… 😉😂😂
heheh I don’t care if I’m too old for it, I love the sound of nevermoor 😉
I think there’s been a lot of great middle-grade recently. I don’t care what people say though never to old to enjoy any book!
Very much agree!!
