SuperBowl Sunday

IT'S HERE!!!!!

.....That doesn't even make sense

So it's Superbowl Sunday and people are going wild.

No....not as wild as usual because there is one minor difference...


For all of you who are not Patriot's fans, I am sorry that you had to be subjected to that kind of abuse. But I go to a state college in Massachusetts.....making 95% of the population here Patriot's fans.


That is not to say that

  • people aren't excited,
  • food isn't being gathered, and
  • Superbowl showings aren't being held around the campus

.....Because they are

I myself am not THAT excited about Superbowl Sunday...mainly because I'm not a fan of either of the teams. So I'll be cheering on for a different reason....

....How sad does that sound??

Now it is safe to say that the Superbowl commercials have gotten worse and worse

- To the point that there is usually only 1 or 2 really good commercials.
But Hey.
I can enjoy them if I want to.

Especially since Halftime Shows have begun to get so bad that I actually bring extra spoons to the Superbowl viewing so that when the half time show comes on....

I can beginning ripping out my eardrums.

For those of you who don't know...there are a few MAN rules about the Superbowl that must be abided by. If these generalities are not followed, then horrible consequences may occur.

Because I am such a kind and loving individual, I've decided to make up a list of some of these "formalities" that need to be followed.

#1: Nobody should ever enter a viewing of the Superbowl without a bowl of something that contains extreme amounts of either fat, cheese, or dipping sauce. And don't forget that this has to be brought in the proper serving.....Meaning it must be more food than anyone could ever eat in a lifetime.

#2: An individual who has no knowledge of the game, teams, or etiquette will need to sit in the back of the room. Other than during the commercials, this person HAS to stay quiet during the entire event...mainly for risk of being punched by the people who know what they are doing.

#3: If you even think of crossing in front of the TV during the game, you should expect to yelled at along with being pelted by any food items that are around the current vicinity. That's non-negotiable.

#4: Snack runs are important because if the group runs out of snacks during an important part of the game...this can be devestating. Therefore snack runs are done by the people who know the game THE LEAST. Basically, if you don't know what a cover two defense is...I hope you can serve a great taco.

#5: Nobody leaves early............NOBODY

Of course there are many more rules, but I'll let the people who do not know them figure those out for themselves. And if you have any fun ones, you can always leave them in a comment.

So remember...Stay safe and have fun.

I don't want to see any of you running through the streets naked or jumping up and down on an overturned car.

Talk to ya Later!

I love your rules. The superbowl was a letdown for me too this year.
