PELHAM, N.Y. The Super Bowl is watched around the world by millions of people, but some viewers prefer the commercials or the food to the actual game.
No matter what side of the Super Bowl experience they fall on, Pelham residents have a surfeit of choices to make Super Bowl XLVI extra enjoyable. The game features New York's own Giants against the New England Patriots, and one local food merchant not only has a groaning board of food choices for the big game, but also a trivia game for those whose love for the actual game melds with the party element the Super Bowl has come to mean all over the United States.
Dave Katz, owner of the Depot Market and a lifelong Giants fan, will be offering catering options for Super Bowl parties at discounted rates if you know your Big Blue history.
The contest is to try to invoke a little bit of Giants spirit into the game this week, said Katz. Those of us who are Giant fanatics and know our Giant history, we figure if you can answer a Giant question, you can get anywhere from 5, 10, and 15 percent off of your order for the Super Bowl.
The three levels of the questions are easy, medium, and hard, and the percentage off your tab corresponds to the ease or difficulty of the question. The tougher the question, the greater the discount, Katz explained.
Katz decided to start the contest this year after having thought about it many times in the past. The self-proclaimed Giant fanatic stated that it will not be easy.
You better know your stuff if youre coming in, said the Pelham resident.
Sharif Shelton, a Depot Market worker and fellow Giants fan, plans on answering a few questions, but he is unsure of how well he will perform.
I plan on taking a couple of questions, said Shelton. Hes been running questions by me all day and I havent gotten any of them right yet. Theyre pretty tough. Im not gonna lie, they are pretty tough.
If you are a Giants fan and know the history of the team well, Katz will be starting the contest on Monday.
