A Giants-Themed Man Cave

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

I'm sure you're all geared up with the party food, big-screen television, and optimal surround-sound system, and I officially say...may the best team win!

In yesterday's post, I confessed to not being a huge sports-fan myself...but don't get me wrong, I still enjoy a good compitition every now-and-then.  Plus, I've found that I may have some sort of gift when it comes to predicting the winner of the Super Bowl.

You see, last year, I didn't plan any type of post for Super Bowl Sunday, but before the game started I decided it would be fun to make an inspiration board for each of the teams playing.  I figured it would be my way of acknowledging the American tradition that is the Super Bowl.

I started on a board for the Green Bay Packers, and it wound up taking me longer than I thought it would.  About half-way through, I found myself actually rooting for the Packers to win so that I wouldn't have to make another board for the opposing team.  I figured if they won, then everyone would think that I planned the inspiration board around the winning team.

Well...as we all know, the Packers took the game, and I was lucky enough to have my un-planned plan look like I actually planned it!

So this year becomes my test to see if I truly have an inspiration board psychic ability.  

If the New York Giants win the Super Bowl this year, then I guess you all know where to come next year for the winning predictions, right?  ha!

I don't count on me being right, but I did mention yesterday that the Giants will be the team I am rooting on this year...but only because the Patriots beat my Cardinals a few years back.

...and so, I've created an inspiration board for all of you die-hard Giants fans out there.  Or, if you're not the die-hard fan, perhaps you have a husband, son, brother, uncle, or cousin that has been begging you for permission to turn the garage into a man cave.  Well, here you go.
