Deflated Footballs – these chocolate shaped footballs are great served by themselves, and as a cupcake or cake topper for this year’s Superbowl party and you’re guests will enjoy that you’re up-to-date with the sports news.
You’ve heard the rumors…
Unless you cut yourself off from the outside world this past week.
Is it true, is it not true? Did that team from New England purposely deflate 11 of the game balls so that they would have an edge over the Indianapolis Colts in last Sunday’s AFC Championship game?
DEFLATEGATE, people! It’s a first world problem when you come right down to it.
People are starving in America. There’s domestic violence. Children are being abused. Innocent people are murdered every day.
Yet this latest hype about brown things that grown men get paid to play with and if they’re filled with the correct amount of air to their sufficient capacity has changed our focus.
While I am an avid Patriot’s fan, born and bred (for the most part) in Rhode Island, and remember the days of Steve Grogan, I would of course like to think “they” didn’t do it, but I also know that there probably isn’t one person living on the face of God’s green earth who hasn’t lied, cheated or stealed. No, I know… stolen – stealed just sounded better in the sentence.
I, for one, can’t say I haven’t done any of those and I’ll be the first to admit it.
What was it momma said, “those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” and “always make sure you have clean underwear on when you go out”?
Wait, the latter one really has nothing to do with this topic, unless…oh, never mind.
So, I don’t know and frankly, I don’t care. I wasn’t present in the locker room, the equipment room, on the field, the sidelines, Kraft’s luxury box or anywhere else in Gillette Stadium where I would have been privy to any information regarding ball inflating, deflating or what kind of hot dogs were being served that day. Although I would have liked to have been.
Yes, if cheating was involved then actions need to be taken to reprimand those involved. After all, the youth of America idolizes these players (as do some of us adults). Many of them are held in high esteem, and on pedestals, so it can be earth shattering when they fall from grace.
I know. I lived it. I was devastated when everything went (and at times, continues to go) down with Lindsay Lohan.
Ok, I digress. No judgement will I make. Now I sound like Yoda.
I know there are a bunch of you Patriot haters out there, so go on and hate. We can take it – New England sports fans are used to it. Now I’ve got Taylor Swift singing in my head, “and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate”. I’m starting to ramble…
Anywho, now for some fun.
Hold on to your hats, folks, we’re going to pipe some chocolate!
First, we’ll need to start by drawing a football pattern.
Next, we’re going place the wax paper over the pattern and pipe the chocolate. It doesn’t have to be perfect. The more wonky they are, the more deflated they’ll look!
After they’ve cooled in the fridge, you’ll remove them from the paper, turn them over and pipe on the laces.
Ta da!! Don’t they look great?!
I found these over at Craftibilites, but of course, I had to change the name.
These deflated footballs are going to be the talk of your Superbowl party. They’re going to be great on top of some cupcakes, a cake or just served by themselves.
Oh, make some really funny lookin’ ones and tell everyone that those were “Gronked”!
Oh, and what else was it momma said…
“Opinions and a$$holes, everyone’s got one.”
That’s it for my snarky post today. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written, so I had to make up for lost time.
But… I’m BACK!!!! 😉
And if you like these Deflated Footballs, you’ll love my…
