Eating Your Way Through Superbowl XLVI: A Round-Up
svetlana | Feb 3, 2012 | 10:30AM |

Rumor has it,  there are two teams playing against each other this Sunday, in a game involving the ol’ leather pigskin. Perhaps you’ve heard of it: Super Bowl XLVI, or Super Bowl 46, if you don’t remember your Roman numerals. Supposedly, it’s to be a match of epic proportions. Or something.

Now, those two teams this year are The Patriots (who are, it seems, in the Super Bowl always and make the whole thing a little less thrilling from a sports-viewing perspective) and NY Giants (who I don’t have an opinion on, really). The game is taking place in Indianapolis. None of these facts spell for particular culinary excitement, unless we were to go with the imaginary scenario that Indianapolis is a mere 45 (fantasy) min or so away from Pawnee, Indiana (the home of “Parks & Rec”) but even I know this is sort of reaching. Still, here is Ron Swanson eating to get this going:

Now, food is really what SUPER BOWL is all about. Food and commercials. Only no one cares about the commercials anymore because they’ve been leaking all over the youtubes faster than a Lana Del Rey album. So–food it is. Courtesy of some nice blogs around town, here are some suggestions on how to keep things fresher and more flavorful come this Sunday. YAY!

  • First of all, you may as well admit defeat now, because there is no way your spread is beating THIS:

This is an 18+ event. ~~~~ About Jon Dore: Named one of “10 comics to watch” by Variety, Ottawa-born comedian, host and actor Jon Dore is renowned for his offbeat humour and unique bait-and-switch style. Dore is a favourite on the comedy club and festival circuit in Canada and the United States. He has hosted the Just for Laughs Festival Homegrown Comedy Competition on a number of occasions and has enjoyed sold-out runs at the Festival’s Montreal and Toronto locations, at comedy festivals in Halifax, Vancouver, Portland and Washington, DC, and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. From his humble beginnings as the co-host of the cable talk show Daytime Ottawa (Rogers Television) and the irreverent roving reporter on Canadian Idol (CTV), Dore recently starred in the critically acclaimed ABC-TV series How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) opposite Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. Dore is the host of HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell, a series showcasing bold and uncensored comedy from the fastest rising comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, currently shooting its fourth season. He is the star of his own award-winning ‘mockumentary’ series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life’s challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network. Dore starred in the stand-up specials Comedy Central Presents...Jon Dore and Comedy Now! (CTV/The Comedy Network); appeared on a number Comedy Central’s specials including Live At Gotham, CC: Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience and Mash Up; made guest-starring turns on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) and Scare Tactics (Syfy); and was the lead in the CBS pilot My Life As An Experiment. A regular on late night talk shows, Dore has the honor of being the first stand-up to appear on Conan (TBS). Dore's feature film credits include the indie drama Gus opposite Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III) and the comedy Stag, with Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Eva Amurri (Californication), which picked up two awards - Best Ensemble and Excellence in Filmmaking - at the LA Comedy Film Festival. TV Guide Canada called Dore one of the “rising stars of the future” and Toronto weekly NOW Magazine named him Best Male Stand-up. He is the recipient of four Canadian Comedy Awards including: Best Taped Live Performance (2010) for Just for Laughs; Best Performance by a Male in a Television Show (2009) for The Jon Dore Television Show; Best Writing on a Series (2008) for The Jon Dore Television Show; and Best Stand-up Newcomer (2006). He is also a two-time Gemini nominee (2008 & 2009) for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for The Jon Dore Television Show. ~~~ Thanks to our sponsor: More Bentzen Ball shows available at: Stay informed:
