Every year, about a dozen close friends attend Brian’s super Super Bowl party in Kalihi. It has become a tradition that we all look forward to. And as much as we love football, we just enjoy getting together. I believe that this has been my 12th Super Bowl here at the Kalihi house.
It starts at about noon. Brian prints a commemorative t-shirt each year and passes them out upon arrival. Then the grilling begins. We try to eat before kickoff, which is usually around 1:30pm (HST.). Then comes the lengthy explanation of the game sheet that we’re playing. I’m always pretty bad at this. My excuse is that I’m actually trying to watch the game. Brian always comes up with amazing prizes. Today’s grand prize was a Joe Montana autographed mini-helmet. Finishing in last place, I won a package of nori and a movie pass. Still, that’s pretty terrific. Every one wins something.
I truly appreciate this time. It’s all about having your own traditions. Already looking forward to next year’s party. It was a super Sunday….
