What better way to enjoy the sports games than sharing that time with good food and good friends. It doesn’t matter if you are all rooting for the same teams or not, that just makes the results a little more exciting. Imagine being on different sides how the static in the air will be charged with enthusiasm for your own home team.

While all the yelling, cheering and booing is happening in front of the big screen television remember you are surrounded with your best friends and no matter the outcome your friendship will stay in tack. There may be a little kidding for the next day or two but that is par for the course.

During the time the game is on there should be lots of goodies to munch on while everyone is watching and talking with each other. Many dishes, appetizers, sandwiches and dips go well during the occasion and we want to share a few with you that just might make the time spent eating just as remarkable as the outcome of the game being watched.
