Saturday 9- Waiting All Day for Sunday Night


Saturday 9: Waiting All Day for Sunday Night (2012)

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 tortilla type chips I would choose salsa, but most other chips I would choose French onion.


  1. I'd wish you luck in the Super Bowl, but since I'm a 49er fan, I can't do that!

  2. I'm so lonely for baseball, I was even excited to see #4, that Cub killer Yadier Molina! :)

  3. You are really excited for the game! I don't think I've ever seen you give a longer answer to a question. lol I hope your Chiefs to well. Since it's been 50 years since they were last in the game, I will declare myself a Chief's fan for the weekend. I do love an underdog story. Have a great day, Lori!

  4. I use French Onion dip for scrambled eggs, instead of milk I use a teaspoon of dip.

  5. The chips do matter! I hope you enjoy the game and your Chiefs win big.

  6. OUr country's hsitory is no moe questionable than any other.. slavery was all over the world before it came here... not that that makes it ok.. but political hacks want us to believe there is nothing of worth about our nation!

  7. I'm fussy about chips. But I do like a homemade guac.

  8. I agree about the chips! My Joe wants SF to win but I think I'm leaning toward KC just because it has been 50 years since their last SB. I enjoyed your answers and agree with Stacy that these answers are the longest I've seen you write!

  9. Chips don't make a lot of difference to me -- guacamole is great on potato chips! Loved all your answers, and I hope your team does well in the big game.
