And The Jets WIN!

by Courtney on January 16, 2011

I might be a little excited right now…




My parents house is definitely filled with some very happy people right now!

We headed over here earlier for an evening of football and food. As always, the food was plentiful…





And the Jets gear was definitely out in full force!


My family isn’t full of die-hard Jets fans or anything… ;)




Isn’t my parents’ bar top the coolest??


Years ago, my parents, brother, and I made this bar top completely out of pennies. Believe it or not, it actually took longer to get the pennies from the bank then it did to lay them all out for the bar top…

That’s over $38.00 in pennies! :)


So the last few hours of my life have been outrageously intense. I can’t believe how nervous this darn game was making me! The nerves definitely led to some nervous munching throughout the game. Even still, I enjoyed a little bit of everything, and don’t feel overly stuffed.

Overall, it was a GREAT game…


and we’re still celebrating!! :-D

Question for the Evening:

Have you been watching football? Who are YOU routing for?

(I promise, I won’t judge) ;)

YAY JETS! My family was going nuts too. I tried to call my boyfriend in Boston and rub it in but mysteriously he wouldn’t pick up the phone hahaha

We’re cheering for both the Jets and the Packers… Dan did spend his first 23 years in Wisconsin, after all!

Your team beat mine :0( But it was a good game.

Next week I’m torn. I don’t like either team…but I’m a fan of the game so I’ll be watching.

I don’t think I’ll have a voice after todays’ game and all the screaming.


4 Krysten January 16, 2011 at 9:23 pm

I was rooting for the Pats :( SO depressed right now, but the victory went to the better team. Congrats on the win!


5 Amy B @ Second City Randomness January 16, 2011 at 9:27 pm

Well… you know I’m a Bears fan, so I may not be so nice about your team in a couple weeks, but was totally cheering you guys on today. I mean seriously- who actually likes the Patriots??? :p

10 Molly January 16, 2011 at 10:25 pm

GO JETS!!! I was also quite excited about the win. I’m a Beas Fan, but spent a good portion of my life in NJ, so today was my football dream come true. I can’t wait to see what happens next week.


11 Autumn @ Good Eats Girl January 16, 2011 at 10:28 pm

Love the bar! I had 10$ of rolled pennies once. Instead of going to the bank to change them, I gave them to a charity that was doing door-to-door :).

26 Marg January 17, 2011 at 10:34 am

Congrats, We were rooting for the Jets yesterday. Sorry as much as I don’t want to, I’ll be rooting for the Steelers for the next game! That’s my boyfriends team, but kinda don’t want him rubbing it in if they make it to the Superbowl, since my team, Saints, are out :( So I may secretly be happy if the Jets win, haha.


27 Beth @ Give a girl the right shoes January 17, 2011 at 10:44 am

I love the Packers! I know how exciting it is to see your team win though! Hopefully next weekend both teams play great! :)


28 Dani January 17, 2011 at 10:56 am

E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!!!!! Love Love my birds and my bf’s team is the ravens who I’ll also cheer for( I’ve actually become quite acclimated with the city of Baltimore). I was cheering for the Jets, but its still kind of hard to like the jets because living in Queens and working in the City I am surrounded by Jets and cross over from the giants jets fans and boy are the obnoxious! WHen the Yankees beat the Phillies 2 yrs ago THey wallpapered my desk with newspaper articles about the Yankees…..for this reason I cannot like NY teams -_- but anything is better then Pittsburgh( try living in Penn State with all those crazies)! So go Jets!

Love the bar!

IF you moved to say ……I don’t know Green Bay would you change teams or stay loyal, or route for both?

I now will be rooting for the Jets to go all the way…”anybody but the Steelers”!
