Superbowl Moments

Here's some photos of our Superbowl Socktravaganza. I had a vested interest in the results of this game since I had chosen the Saints banana just hours earlier. Sorry Peyton, I didn't realize how much power my choice would have. You can go to Disney World another year, man.

Sock monkey wanna-be Laura and Gunther are ecstatic over another Saints touchdown!

Our party guests, from left to right: Scarlet, Ben Socklisberger, Gunther, me, Laura, Simon, Troy Monkamalu and Jarvis

Karl couldn't resist joining the couch potatoes, although he struggled to keep his eyes open.

Karl is fast asleep, I'm sitting on his back, and Saints fans everywhere are celebrating!

Dear SoCk mONkEy QuEeN,

I think knitting is probably too difficult and time consuming for Laura, so it's good that there's plenty of talented folks in the world to sell us their crafts. I've seen a lot of sock monkey hats on www.etsy.com lately if you want to check it out.

Your Pal,
Big Monkey

P.S. Did you see the Kia commercial during the Superbowl with the sock monkey?

I will check it out... and yes both S'morey and I saw the superbowl commercial.. we were so thrilled. :)

I love your hat also. I'm a knitter so maybe I should give it a try. I'm so jealous of your Walmart Sock Monkeys. How I missed it at Christmas is beyond me. If you ever see one available somewhere please let me know. Love the Kia Commercial. I've watched it over and over. Did you see you can buy the official monkey at foxsox.com?

Hi Itsy,

You should try to knit the hat. It is really cool! The one we have is lined with fleece so it's not itchy. I haven't seen the Walmart sock monkeys since Xmas. Then again, our Walmart is being renovated so I don't go there as much as usual. I'll let you know if I see him anywhere else. I've already purchased the official Kia Joy Ride Dream sock monkey from the maker herself at www.imodstudio.com It's the same monkey being offered on foxsox (same price too).

Your Pal,
Big Monkey

Hi, Big Monkey!

Wow!! You had quite a crowd at your house for the Superbowl! You are lucky that Laura likes football. We had to watch the Kia commercial on Dad's computer, because Mom did not want to watch the game.

Love, Noah

Hi Noah,

At least she can watch it on the computer. Have you seen the shortened version on t.v. that they're showing post-Superbowl?

I was wondering why you don't have any pictures of your monkey with the biggest monkey of all, BARACK OBONGO.

One term president.....YES!

Hey BM, are you into the Olympics? Which sport is your favorite? I'll bet you'd like to Ice Dance with one of your media ladies!

Hi Willis,

I love the Olympics! It's hard to pick which sport is my favorite, but I would like to ice skate in a sparkly costume. It might be fun to snowboard alongside the Flying Tomato too.
