Neither Greg or I have ever been to a Super Bowl Party. Are we totally lame? Yes. Are we terrible at committing to events/fun things more than a few hours in advance? Absolutely.
But this year, we went big! We heard last minute about the Super Bowl party scheduled at Pinche Gringo BBQ and we knew we had to be a part of this celebration!
A few months ago there was an NFL game here in Mexico City and while we did not go to the actual game, we did go to the Fan Experience celebration in the Zocalo and there we realized something we did not yet know about Mexico—>people here are crazy about American football! It was a lot of fun to see the excitement throughout the entire city in the days leading up to that game.
The Super Bowl was no different–people were CRAZY excited. The game itself was an awesome one too complete tons of back and forth momentum and missed extra points and other excitement. The best part was that we got to experience the game with a few hundred of our closest amigos and it was SO cool.
If we learned one thing it is this: Mexicans are passionate about American football. Some may argue it is on the same level as futbol. What do you guys think? Is American football big here in Mexico?
Also, Pinche Gringo makes some incredible, traditional BBQ that we used to eat in Texas! Here’s more info on the restaurant:
