This weekend we're celebrating one of our favorite U.S. writing holidays...
The New Orleans Saints VS. The Indianapolis Colts
Here's how it works:
Prepare the menu. Samples may be found here and here. Do not skim. If you run out of food and beverages, yes the apocalypse will occur.
Turn on the tube just in time for the pre-game festivities.
As everyone hunkers down for Super Bowl XLIV ...
Run to your office.
Lock the door.
Stay there for 4-6 hours.
You can always sneak a peak at the famous Super Bowl commercials here.
