Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching and with the big game comes the pressure of Super Bowl parties. However, like the players, a full season of football games should have prepared fans for the big day. Again, like the players, it is good to have a game plan in place so nothing is over looked. So as a big sports fan myself I am here to offer my tips to a great Super Bowl party.
First off, in case you need some partying guidelines, this video gives really good advice on what not to do at a Super Bowl party.
Super Bowl Food: Like the holiday season this is a day when a diet can take the back seat. There can never be too much food for game day with finger food being a must. With food such as chips and dip, popcorn and wings you need to have something available from the Pregame to the Postgame. For a more filling option around kickoff after half time I recommend barbeque. It’s a staple with fans from every tailgate around the country and it also offers a variety of options ranging from hot dogs, burgers, and brats to stake and ribs.
Pregame Games: Like barbeque bringing some tailgate games to the party is a great way to kill time and spark conversations leading up to kickoff. For hardcore fans it is a daylong celebration so discussing the matchup among friends over games is better than 10 hours of TV pregame shows. My favorite games include beer pong, beanbag toss, bolo toss and washer toss.
TV Game Plan: Tivo is a great invention and great for sports fans with the option to go back a look at plays on their own but during such a big event as the Super Bowl I am of the firm belief that it is not to be used. Normally you can get back to live TV before having the score ruined for you during the commercials. Problem is the Super Bowl commercials are just as important as the game so there is no catching up if you fall behind. All it takes is one glance at the smart phone to ruin a key play so to be safe, no Tivo on the Super Bowl.
Friends: The last and most important tip is to watch the game with friends and or family. Looking at the history of the Super Bowl games, some have been less than thrilling. So if the worst should happen and the game is bad you can just continue to party with friends.
