Super Bowl Step 3: Super Bowl food and predictions:

Before we get into predictions Ravens fans, let’s talk grub. Super Bowl Sunday is a great day to hang around with the family (Covid-safely) and enjoy the food you shouldn’t have on your new year’s diet. You have to get this right.

I’m going over to my Dad’s this year. He’s making buffalo wings and ribs. Mom is bringing the world’s best macaroni and cheese and crack dip. To quote Barney Stinson, it’s going to be “Legend-wait for it-dary.” That’s just one idea, so get your grub on.

Other good ideas are cheesesteaks, brats and, pizza never really fails. If you want to get a little Baltimore in the Super Bowl, crab dip or crab nachos is always a winner. Time everything out well. Hang out before the game with your dips and chips.

During the seemingly endless pre-game get that appetizer going. Dinner at halftime is a good call. If you’re going to cram all the gooey good stuff into your stomach, spacing it out is a good idea. Spacing it out is a good idea for your beverages as well. The Super Bowl halftime show is always a spectacle so it makes it good for dinner.

Now you know who to root for, what to watch for and how to do your Super Bowl spread. It’s officially prediction time ladies and gentlemen. I’m rolling with the Chiefs. I think the Buccaneers are the team best suited to take Kansas City down, and I almost talked myself into picking Tampa Bay.

In the end, Mahomes is just too good. Going against Mahomes in the Super Bowl feels like a bad call, even against a quarterback who has won six Super Bowls. I think that tells you something. I expect this one to be close. Give me the Chiefs 31-28. If I can’t have the Ravens in the Super Bowl, just give me a game that we’ll never forget.
