Super Bowl LII is taking place right in our own backyard this year! This week, Minneapolis has become Super Bowl central, filling up with fans of the Patriots, Eagles, and football alike. In honor of this (and inspired by The Future Boys & Girls "Coats, Hats, and Gloves" video, featured in our January newsletter), we've been asking our students for some of their best advice to Minnesota's Super Bowl guests (including the players themselves!). Here's what they have to say:
- No moving around for no reason.
- Put your hair up because your hair can get in your face.
- Make sure you bring your jacket and your boots.
- Don't fall on the ice.
- When you get the ball, throw it as high as you can.
- Follow the rules of the law and don't fight.
- Minnesota has nice people, it it good to live in.
- Why are you here?
- Just be prepared.
- Minnesota is safe (most of the time).
- You need to beat the Eagles.
- You need to have bigger pads.
- You should eat waffles every day.
- Come to the MOI Library. [Captain's note: this wasn't us!]
- Be nice to the Vikings fans and people from Minnesota.
These pieces of advice are compiled from our Writers' Table. Each day after students at After-School Homework Help finish their homework, they go to work on their writing with our Writer in Residence, Ellen. This week, we've been discussing advice for people visiting Minnesota for the Super Bowl! What advice would you give people visiting your hometown for a weekend? Share it with us on social media!
