I can't speak for everyone watching The Super Bowl on Sunday, but I can tell you that everyone at our house was unanimous in the fact that Super Bowl 53 will go down in history as the most boring game yet. Ha! We were all on the edge of our seats two weeks prior, when the Chiefs played the Patriots hoping that the Chiefs would defeat the dreaded New England team. Sadly, when that didn't happen, all of our hearts sank that night and we knew that this year's Super Bowl wasn't going to be what we all hoped for. However, even though the Chiefs didn't make it to the big game there is a silver lining. What's that? If it's Super Bowl Sunday at The Layne House that means that it's time for our annual Wing Off! One of my favorite days of the year! I start looking forward to Wing Off months in advance knowing that everyone will be participating with delicious wings and creative displays to serve them. As always, it was another great year and successful competition. I'm always so impressed with the unique flavors of wings that everyone creates year after year. Not only the wings, but their presentations as well. This year was very exciting because not only did we have TWO winners for Best Presentation, but it was also one of the winners first time competing. Mr. Colin Henley has been coming to Wing Off for years, however, this year he came up with his own flavor of wings and display for his presentation. He did an awesome job! His display was very creative and if your not a fan of the Patriots you will definitely get a kick out of it. Also winning Best Presentation was Justan Layne with a great display of his Chipotle Lime Wings at "Wing Field". Well done gentlemen, well done!
As Super Bowl 53 was coming to an end so was our party. The wings had been eaten, the votes had been tallied, and the results were in. Everyone’s hard work had not been in vain. Congratulations to all of the winners!

Here are a few of my favorite images from a very memorable evening. I’m already counting down the days until next year and we will hopefully be cheering on our Kansas City Chiefs! Enjoy and Happy Tuesday!
