Host a Watch Party for the “Big Dance”

Host a Watch Party Sliders

It’s the perfect time to host a watch party!

Any excuse is a good one if it involves gathering friends and serving great food!

Cheer on your favorite teams as they find out who will go to the “Big Dance.” Have fun with your food selections by using a basketball theme.

Try serving steakburgers with cheese shaped like basketballs. And cupcakes are fun to easily decorate to mimic a basketball – they’re already round!

Anything ball-shaped can quickly fit into your hoops-themed party. Cake balls become basket-cake-balls. Cookies are easy to decorate. And so is pizza! Just use pepperonis to create the distinctive lines of the basketball.

Not feeling that creative? Serve your favorite foods (like steak) on basketball-themed plates and napkins. Your fans will be just as appreciative!

Happy hosting!

Highlights of Our Beef and Basketball Posts Past

Over the years, we’ve talked a lot about steak and a lot about basketball. Because, well, you’ve gotta munch on something while you watch some hoops!

And it SHOULD be something beef-related.

We’ve discussed recipes for basketball-watching parties, a Meat Madness bracket and basketball players fueling up on steak for the big game among other things.

Let’s take a trip down Memory Lane and relive all those wonderful, beefy basketball moments, shall we? Just click here to see them all.

And make some of these recipes while you’re watching the Final Four in action – enjoy!

Basketball Players Need Steak!

In this article, the University of Kentucky’s men’s basketball coach laments his team’s restrictions on food put on them by the NCAA.

The team – and all NCAA teams – must adhere to the strict three meals a day rule and no more. His players are going hungry!

Imagine burning 2,500 calories a pop and not being able to refuel your body if it’s not a set mealtime. Elite athletes don’t work this way!

Folks, we can’t change the NCAA rules but we can eat for our teams, right?

That’s how I look at it. As I watch the NCAA Tournament games this weekend I’ll be fueling up for those guys.

It’s the least I can do. But, really, I wish I could send them a big Porterhouse (see above). Surely that would get them through!

But, apparently, that would be like buying them a car according to the rules. Don’t want to violate any rules.

What do you think? Should the rules be changed to allow players to eat when their bodies need it? They’re starving!
