?Here's hoping they never come in style.Anyhow, I present two wine-and-football-related links for your viewing pleasure:Link #1: Bud Light's marketing department must be a sight to behold - they pull out all the stops, typically running numerous ads during the Super Bowl. I'll have to pick myself up a box of that Chablis...Bud Light Wine and Cheese Super Bowl ad
Link #2: Springfield, New Jersey's Gary Vaynerchuk (of retail outlet Wine Library
) is a die-hard New York Jets fan (note his spit bucket), but many of his staff are true-blue Giants fans. On yesterday's episode of his video blog (his 400th), he let some of his staff bask in the glory of the Giants' victory.If you've never seen an episode of Wine Library TV (or, as Gary calls it, "The Thunder Show"), I urge you to check it out. Vaynerchuk's enthusiasm for wine bubbles up five times a week on his daily video blog, and has been the inspiration for some of my own writing. In this episode, he actually tastes through three vodkas in a tip of the hat to his Belarus heritage.Wine Library TV episode #400
