Super Bowl, But Not Super Food

I was lucky enough to have been there — in person — at Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa. The weather was great, and so was the football game.

But the food? It was very, very ordinary. Maybe even below the quality of what you'd normally find in a major sports stadium.

The soft pretzels at Raymond James Stadium were the usual bland variety that you find at pro sports events. The hot dogs were below par, and there was no brown or spicy mustard as an option — just the usual bright-yellow French's mustard. There was no tray or container with diced onion available. The only option was to squeeze minced onions out of one of those plastic, rectangular-shaped packets.

Oh well. I didn't go there to eat. I went there to watch football, and it was a fantastic game.
