Hey friends! Being real right now.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I don’t watch many sports.
Ok, I maaaaay watch figure skating during the Olympics and there was this *one* time I got a little excited when the Toronto Maple Leafs were in the playoffs (yeah, that was a let down), but on the norm, I’m not a sports watching girl.
The food that goes along with it, though?
I say BRING IT!!
I will happily put on ma little game day face. Heck, I’ll even wear a ‘GO TEAM’ shirt…..*if* you feed me.
So, without further adieu and in the spirit of the season, I’ve rounded up 20 epic dips for game day! Sound good?
