OneWed’s Local Flavor: Big Game Day

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

It’s easy to avoid picking the Super Bowl for your wedding date. What’s harder is predicting whether your favorite team makes the playoffs or semi-finals and plays said game on your wedding day. You may be thinking, “Sweet, now I’ll have something to do during the rehearsal dinner and we can serve hot wings & dogs.”

A bit of advice, resist the urge to sneak away to the nearest TV to watch the game with your groomsmen. Unless your bride-to-be is an avid sports fan and you’re having a Cardinals-themed wedding, resist, resist, resist. To satisfy you and your sports-loving guests’ needs, announce the score at the reception or even at the ceremony (only if she’s game).  But be mindful that your bride will likely get upset if folks are watching the game during the wedding. Politely ask your friends to return to the festivities. Give her this one night…you’ll have a lifetime of game nights to come.

The Man Registry’s Super Bowl XLIII Pick

Friday, January 30th, 2009

The Arizona Cardinals were 40-1 odds to win the Super Bowl before the season began. In week 16, they went to New England and were trounced by the Patriots 47-7. Only in the NFL could this team now be playing for a shot at being world champions. Parity has made predicting what’s going to happen during the season and playoffs downright impossible – but we’re going to take our best shot.

Arizona Cardinals 23 Pittsburgh Steelers 20

Hey, who are we to bet against an underdog?  We think Kurt Warner has just a little more magic left and he’ll call it a career after his Cardinals take down the Steelers. He tends to play close games in Super Bowls, and we think this one will be no different.  Arizona is just flat-out a fun team to watch. The Steelers are solid, but by no means unbeatable….and their injury questions do raise some concern.

Also, we’ve gotta mention Larry Fitzgerald. Here is his stat line for the three playoff games that the Cardinals have played so far:

23 catches. 419 yards. 5 touchdowns = RIDICULOUS!

App Day: A New American Tradition

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

appetizer-day

By Jimmy Horner, Co-Founder of TheManRegistry.com

Today, I’m proposing a new American tradition, hereby dubbed: App Day. This tradition should be treated as every other holiday in this grand country, either by taking the day off work, or to make it even easier to receive approval from the federal holiday commission, it could even be held on a Sunday every year. On second thought, maybe easiest of all would be to collocate it with another existing time-honored and manly tradition — Super Bowl Sunday.

Now that we have the day carefully chosen, let’s expand upon the concept. First off, every citizen (or guest) will be tasked, no — honored, with bringing at least two appetizers to the occasion (read: party). One stipulation: one of the food items must be fried. I know what you’re thinking health-conscious America, “That can’t possibly be on my new 2009 diet!” But fear not, there are multiple ways to thoroughly enjoy this holiday, even with lighter fare. On the healthier side, appetizers could include fried mushrooms, zucchini, ochre, squash or fish. On the more traditional end, dishes could focus on fried chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, sausages, you get the idea. The key to this holiday is to think outside the box — don’t just let your imagination wane. Think chili, little smokies, quesadillas, fried pickles…the possibilities are virtually endless.

If you already have another tradition in place for Super Bowl Sunday that simply can’t be broken, this is a perfect opportunity to extend this holiday to a groom-to-be’s man shower instead. “Man Showers” have become extremely popular in the last several years as men are getting more involved with weddings. I personally can’t think of a better way to celebrate a man’s impending nuptials than by downing plate after plate of fried foods chased by cold beer with close friends and family. So find a day that works for your buddy and get started.

TIP: If you don’t already have one, I’d recommend picking up a deep fryer ASAP because this day will soon become one of the great American holidays citizens look forward to each and every year, so the investment will be well worth it — cheers!
