Happy New Year, football fans! In a year that we all thought would be about rebuilding, the Eagles won the NFC East (again) and are going to the playoffs as the #3 seed. Time to celebrate, because they aren't going to beat the Cowboys on Sunday, what with the almost certain resting the starters and all that.
1 pm: Panthers/Falcons and Bucs/Saints
4 pm: Eagles/Cowboys, Giants/Redskins and Bears/Packers (No, we do not currently have the capacity to watch 3 games at once. But we'll figure it out.)
8 pm: Rams at Seahawks
Menu: I just asked Chef Spouse and (I quote) "I still haven't thought about Food Lab: Hors D'Oeuvres (our planned New Year's Eve afternoon activity). I have NO idea." But I'm planning to make some homemade pretzels, since I haven't done that yet this year. So maybe brats? It is traditional in my family to eat pork and sauerkraut on New Year's to ensure good luck. And January 2 is practically New Year's...
