Heinz-sight: Super Sunday

Sunday will undoubtedly be a time for friends and family to gather in Northern California to root the San Francisco 49ers on to a Super Bowl victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Especially exciting is the emergence of quarterback Colin Kaepernick from Turlock, not exactly from our backyard but still, pretty close.

Here’s a fun fact: In February 2006, Pitman High, featuring Kaepernick, visited El Dorado Hills for a first-round Division II playoff basketball game and lost 75-65 to the Trojans. Kaepernick, a senior, scored 31 points but was upstaged by Ryan Anderson who dropped in 50.

Without getting into the nuts and bolts of Sunday’s matchup, several things came across my desk I’d like to share …

*Enjoy the snow, and then watch the Super Bowl all at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort. Sierra is celebrating the 49ers’ success by offering the ultimate value on Super Bowl Sunday with $49 tickets. The ski resort will recognize guests dressed in 49er jerseys, jackets, and hoodies by offering a discounted full-day lift ticket.

Sierra Resort wants to give skiers and riders the opportunity to enjoy a day on the mountain and stay to watch the Super Bowl. What is better than shredding Sierra Resort then kicking back to watch the Harbaugh brothers battle it out for the Super Bowl?

Sierra Resort will have contests, games, giveaways, and of course every television tuned into the big game throughout the day. In the main lodge, the Sierra Pub will offer food and drink specials including 49-cent fries, chicken wings, tacos, and more! Contests and games will be held throughout halftime keeping everyone entertained. For more information, visit SierraAtTahoe.com or call 530-659-7453.

*Have fun at the parties, be safe but act responsibly too. Wast Management has put out tips on reducing the carbon footprint to reduce the generated waste and recyclables.

1) Carpool. Encourage ride sharing.
2) Buy in bulk. Go for less packaging.
3) Finger foods mean fewer plates and utensils. If needed, use silverware and the china.
4) Two-Container (or 3) System. One for trash, one for bottles/cans, one for food waste (compost pile?)
5) Buy local. From microbrew to homemade salsa to reduce carbon emissions.
6) TV Reuse — If you’ve upgraded to the big screen, donate the old one to charity or a college student in need. Recycle the carbon box.

Enjoy the game and enjoy the commercials.
