Memoir Writing Prompt: What memories does Super Bowl hold for you?

Super Bowl LII has come and gone. And what a game it was! Even I was cheering for the Eagles. As I was growing up, football was not an item in our home. When I reached high school, football became a social event. My parents left me off at the school with $1.00 and a blanket. The money went for two cups of hot chocolate and the blanket kept me semi-warm in the frigid snowstorms and plunging temperatures that frequented our north Pennsylvania nights. But I braved it all to have a few hours of fun with my girlfriends. I married a man who loves any sport that has a round or oval sphere to chase around a court or field—especially football. And because Dad loved sports so much, our two boys did too. So year after year, Thanksgiving Day and Super Bowl Sunday tended to be revered in our home—as was any day or night that the Spurs played basketball or the Cowboys (or any other team) played football.
