Behind the scenes with a Super Bowl tradition
Super Bowl has become a family tradition for my family and this year “Brady Babbby” is in town – Houston that is.
Every year, especially when the New England Patriots are playing, it is special. This year is no different.
My mother celebrates her birthday Super Bowl Sunday. So, it’s a dual celebration – her birthday party and Super Bowl LI will be celebrated in our Houston household.
My mom is also a big Tom Brady fan and she can’t wait to see what he does this year as he works for a record win for him and the Patriots.
We expect a host of family members to gather and discuss everything from the plays on the field to the halftime shoe. Already, they’re on the phone and texting what they’re going to bring and where everyone is going to celebrate.
This year we are really pumped for Super Bowl, because Houston will be hosting. We’re from Houston and the city is going to be lit up.
My mother is planning a Super Bowl/ Roaring 20s party, for her birthday.
I know my mom is beyond excited for her birthday since it’s her day and she’s that much closer to Tom
Brady. The day starts with every television in the house on and watching ESPN highlights and commercials leading up to the final countdown.
My mom usually screams “Brady Babbbby. . . ” every time she sees Brady and we expect her to do the same when the game is about to start or when he makes a big play.
“Brady Babbbby. . . ”
My family and I turn up the music and start the party. The Super Bowl really should be a holiday. Everyone tends to get pretty settled in when they celebrate football with my mom. Toward the start of the game we all place a collective bets. Once all bets are placed and money is secured, those who won the bet divide up the funds amongst each other.
As for my mom, she is usually on another level when she is celebrating. This year is special – Brady Babby is in town for her birthday.
My mother will make sure she has an epic time. I can feel it already that she’s going to make everyone go against her beloved Rom Brady. Over all I want my mom too have a great time and to enjoy herself for her birthday with her dream guy just down the freeway at NRG Stadium for Super Bowl LI.
