Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) This week's Saturday 9 has a football theme because there's a big game Sunday. Will you be watching? YES! I am a Kansas City Chiefs fan, I lived in Kansas City for a little while too after college. I have always been a Chiefs fan though, so GO CHIEFS. I love watching the commercials and halftime too. I even like the team we are playing the 49ers. Here is our quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He is such a great guy.
2) The Super Bowl is a big day for food consumption in the US, second only to Thanksgiving. What's on your menu this weekend? We are planning to smoke some meat Saturday and make nachos with cheese and BBQ meat and some kind of pizza. We had meatball sliders for the playoffs.
3) The NFL has decreed that the Super Bowl will never be played in a city that has a median February temperature of less than 50º. Would your hometown qualify for the Big Game? no, Kansas City will never have a Superbowl because we do not have a dome...but it is supposed to be near 70º in Missouri on Superbowl Sunday! It has also snowed a few times already this season in Kansas City. They cannot take that chance. Arrowhead is a great stadium though!
4) This version of the NFL theme song mentions the Steelers and the Broncos. During the regular season, which team do you root for? How did they do in 2019? Kansas City Chiefs!
5) This version of the Sunday Night Football song is by Faith Hill. She also has ties to the MLB, since her husband is Tim McGraw, son of the Mets' pitcher Tug McGraw. Which sport do you prefer -- baseball or football? Well, I love them both. I have been a fan of football longer than baseball. However, I have been to more baseball games in person. I really think I love them equally. I mean with Mahomes with the Chiefs and the St. Louis Cardinals always decent as a team....I enjoy them both. Before Patrick Mahomes I would have said baseball easy. The Chiefs were not very good and they were hard to watch. It has been 50 years since we have been to the Superbowl! Baseball was my passion for so many years and I always watched the Chiefs, but they just didn't win. It is easy to love the Cardinals, they almost always compete. So currently I will say a tie. Here is Yadi though.
6) Faith has performed live at more than one The Super Bowl in the past, performing both "America, the Beautiful" and "The Star Spangled Banner." What's your favorite patriotic song? I love them all. I love this country and I know it has a questionable history, but it is good to remember that and try to better ourselves.
7) She has a perfume line with Coty that was a big seller at CVS during Christmas 2018. What's the last item you bought at a drugstore? medicine.
8) Faith Hill is the producer of a talk show on CMT called Pickler and Ben. Is the TV on as you answer these questions? If so, what are you watching? It is Thursday night and I am watching the news.
9) Random question: You've got a chip in your hand and three dips to choose from -- guacamole, salsa, and onion. Where does your chip get dipped? what kind of chip? It really does depend for me...so tortilla type chips I would choose salsa, but most other chips I would choose French onion.
