Yeah, that little bugger was a lot of trouble!

It is a lot of fun to do an adults only trip, but sometimes I think there's a whoe grass is greener thing going on, because I am soooo looking forward to going with my niece and nephew in July.

Day 2 - Sunday Feb. 6, 2011 - Wait, I think there's a football game on.......

So we left off at the Animal Kingdom having rescued the Yeti. Naughty little bugger!

So, we had pretty much done everything we wanted to at the Animal Kingdom at that point. So now what?

How about some shopping!!!!????? I love me some shopping. You don't have to tell me twice.

So, Jason and I decided to leave Animal Kingdom and go to Downtown Disney. We were there in no time, and parked. I loved the Cube, because it was so easy to park! On the way, we spotted this and had to take a pic. Love the Mickey bobblehead.



Our mission was clear....Earl of Sandwich! On the way though, Jason had to say hi to Buzz...



Okay, at that point I had to pull Jason away from Buzz. I wanted to get to my sandwich. I ran over to the Earl. Along the way unfortunately, I did slip a little on my drool. I couldn't help it, that's what happens when I think about those sandwiches.....

I got myself....The Full Montagu



Jason got....The Italian



OMG, it was all so good! I love, love, love that place!

We wandered around a little while after that. We visited the Lego store and TrenD. I'm not gonna lie, I was so tempted to buy myself some Harry Potter legos, but I resisted. I love legos. I have no children, but I would totally buy them just to have for myself.

After that, we figured we would stop at Ghiradelli. Who doesn't love it there!

I got the dark espresso one



And Jason got a dark chocolate one and added peanut butter.



So we're sitting there, enjoying ourselves, when this lady at the table next to us looks at us and says.

"A house divided, huh?"


That was the face I gave her. I had no idea what she was talking about. And she just looks at me expectantly So I say......


.




.




.



.


"yeeaaaaahhhhhhh." In a very slow drawl.

Apparently, this lady doesn't know her team logos, and somehow convinced herself that just because Jason was wearing a black hat, it was a Steelers hat........with a GIANT G ON IT!

We finished our sundaes, and the lady said something about good luck with the game on the way out. She was

So after this, we headed back to the resort to get a little freshened up and head over to the ESPN club. I mean, the game was just about to start! In 5 hours!!!!!! We had to get there fast!

So we get over to the restaurant and there is a small line to get in. As we were waiting in line, we started talking to the two ladies behind us. They were visiting for a conference at the Yacht Club. One was a Packer fan (yay!), the other was rooting for the Steelers, but was really a Vikings fan (boo!).

Had to take some pics before going in....













Cont. in next post

Day 2 - Sunday Feb. 6, 2011 - Wait, I think there's a football game on.......

So, we got to the podium, and we were told that because most tables held four people, since we were a party of two, we were going to be seated with two others eventually. We figured to make it easier we would sit with the two ladies that were waiting behind us. I guess I could sit with a Vikings fan for one day......

Once inside....





We were in the main room, with the big screen tv....and it was mostly Steelers fans. I'm not gonna lie, I totally felt like the minority. I believe all of the Packer fans were in the bar area. How appropriate is that!

We decided to eat later, and just get some soda to drink. Didn't want to get drunk too early.

The guys that work at the ESPN Club were lots of fun, and made the time we had to spend waiting so much quicker. We had to do some rooting and cheering to prove we were great fans. The Packer fans were loudest (wonder why....). The announcer was too funny, because he said that he felt the Steelers fans were filled with hubris. And had to point out that since he figured the Steelers fans didn't know what that was, it meant they were over confident. All in all though, it was all in good fun.

So at about 4:30pm we ordered our first pitcher of Blue Moon (soon, the meaning of my title will come). Had to take a few more pictures outside. Things were starting to get busy..











It was a really good thing that we got there early, because there were so many people outside already too!

And then, boom! It was kickoff!

Obviously, we know that the game started well for the Pack! We were getting totally excited. There were two Packer tables right behind us, and we were high fiving and having a good time.

Well, we're sitting at the table, and all of a sudden, I feel warmth on my leg......okay, I'm not so drunk yet that I've peed myself?!!!

Nope. The server spilled coffee allllll over Jason and it ran on to me! Not a great way to start the game! Apparently the server wasn't ready for our tablemate to get excited and throw her hand in the air.

So what was my solution to that? Order another pitcher! Oh, and some food. I was starting to get hungry. I ordered some teriyaki dingers (chicken nuggets), and Jason ordered a burger.

Our team was doing well. There were lots of people around!









Our team was still doing well, but we were starting to get kind of nervous. Jason had faith though.



We were both pretty happy



By this time we were about three pitchers in. So what better to do? Order a fourth pitcher in the fourth quarter!

And take a picture for no reason!



We were happy there was a Chicago fan in the room...



Just hope he's not a Bears fan!

Then we won! And I have no pictures of that. Why you ask?

So here we were, high fiving everyone! We were all so happy. There were lots of awesome fans there, Steelers and Packers alike. We chatted up some great Steelers fans, and I told them that I had so much respect for their team. They said the same and it was very nice.

Well.....not so much about the other Steelers table. I went over there, to honestly tell them that I had so much respect for their team, and the guy looks at me and tells me to 'eff off! Seriously! Sore loser much? I'm not that kind of fan. If the Steelers had won, to me it would have been greatly deserved.

I was so drunk at this point, that I had no response for him. I just walked away......

Here's another interesting thing about the night. In the third quarter, two huge tables of Steelers fans that had been there longer then I had left. Just left! Seriously, I'm not leaving someplace that I've been at for almost 8 hours!

So Jason went into the bar with some other wayward Packer fans....and did a celebratory shot. Silly Jason! I was left behind to clean up the bill. $126 dollars! Um, a little more then I anticipated! I was seriously going to have to rebalance what our food spend for the rest of the trip was going to be.

After I collected my shot taking brother, we started walking back to the resort. Was my logic not awesome with picking this resort?

So Jason leans over to me and says as we're walking:

"Wanna zzeee how I cun geta hotgurl toooo huga me?"

"Huh?"

"Watch dis...."

So he marches up to this hot girl, WITH HER BOYFRIEND. Oh man, I'm having bad images, thinking "crap, I can't drive right now.....he's going to need a hospital......geez, oh geez......"

And he just says to the girl "my team jus' won da sup'bowl, gimme a huga!" And she totally hugged him! No joke.

Then there was no stopping him. Indian businessmen, Japanese businessmen, people in our lobby, they all got hugged.

It was now time for bed though. We clambered into the room and Jason just fell on the bed and turned on the TV.....and I.................got sick. Very, very unlike me. After that, I climbed into bed. And passed out. Then, in the hazy distance, I hear....

"Spencer!"

"Spencer!"

"You never listen to me Spencer!"

"Shut up Heidi!"

"Oh my God, Spencer!"

Why the heck was Jason watching The Hills? Do they even show The Hills on TV anymore?

So I fell out of bed.....and realized that it was 3am, and Jason was not watching The Hills.....he had simply fallen asleep on the remote......

And that was my night!


End scene

HAHA your Super Bowl day was hilarious! How cool to have been able to watch it at ESPN with so many other fans. Very cool. I watched the game for the commercials only in the comfort of my living room. I couldn't cheer for the Packers as I am a Vikings fan, and a bitter one at that

Uh oh, a Vikings fan.....LOL.

I love the commercials! I just don't remember all of them......My favorite one hands down was the little Darth Vader though. Priceless!

Hilarious update. I am not a fan of either team but I could not find myself rooting for the Steelers so I was pulling for the Packers. They were the better team. The scary thing is that it seems like they will be just as good if not better next year.

Sounds like you had a great time! Love the picture of the Volkswagen with the Mickey in it. You sure choose my kind of snacks...those sundae pics had me drooling again!

Am afraid I don't know much about the game but at those fans telling you to eff off...that wasn't very sportsman like. So that's how to get a hug from a complete stranger...will have to try it sometime!!

I know what it's like to have teams in the Superbowl that aren't yours. Sometimes it's hard to make a choice who to root for....and other times its' not so hard.

I'm trying not to be too overly confident about next year. You just never know. I'm happy with winning the Superbowl this year!

I know, right? That's my whole thing. Just take it like a man!

Yeah, we're talking different football, huh?

Oh, definitely put Ghirardelli on your list, or, one of my favorites, Beaches and Cream at the Beach Club. You can't make reservations, so it's best to dine at odd times, but the No Way Jose sundae? Crazy good!

Exactly! If you can't take it you shouldn't be watching the sport.

Sure are...ask me anything about English Football and I could probably go on for ages but when it comes to Superbowl do not have a clue!

And the list grows and grows! Will definitely be adding Ghiradelli but may have to leave B&C this time...choices, choices!

hahaha sounds like you had a memorable Super Bowl in more ways than one! That's cool for the most part everyone was gracious except the one guy. Guess there's always going to be someone like that.

I like the girl in the background of the picture of your brother...looks like she had had enough. LOL!

YAY Packers! I'm still so jealous you were there.

Hi, I'm all caught up and loving your trip report!

That was a lot of pitchers! and a sneaky shot too! but sounds like you had a great day/evening made much sweeter by victory I'm sure! That was very kind of you to go and speak with the other team, and boo to your man for being a poor sport! we have watched gaelic games in the irish bar on i drive and loved the atmosphere, I am hoping to get DBF a NFL vest/shirt for our next trip, he would prob like something with an irish connection, any ideas?

The pictures from Expedition Everest are hilarious, combined wiith your storytelling and the facial expressions being pulled I was having a good laugh reading thru it!

and thanks for the great earl of sandwich pic's! looking forward to reading more!
