Must-Haves for the Super Bowl

Must-Haves for the Super Bowl

Know Your Stuff. Nothing is worse than going to a Super Bowl party and someone asking, “so who is playing?” To spare you the embarrassment, these are the need-to-knows:

  • The New York Giants are playing against the New England Patriots.
  • The game is in Indianapolis.
  • Madonna is performing during the halftime show.

Choose a Side and Stay There. Even if your team is not in the game, or especially if you have no interest in the game at all, I guarantee watching the game will be infinitely more enjoyable if you have a team to root for. Unfortunately, my Chicago Bears were plagued with injuries (and bad plays) this season, so I can’t cheer them on. Luckily for me, I have enough pent up hatred for the Patriots that rooting for the Giants will sufficiently fill that void. Whether you choose the underdog or the one with the best colors, support the team and treat them as your own for the day.

Control your Bladder. Some of the best parts of the Super Bowl are the commercials. So with the riveting game, funny commercials and exciting halftime show, there is too much can’t-miss content for breaks. I say either get DVR, hire an actor to reenact the moments you miss, or hold it.

Forget the Diet. If you’re on a health kick this year, lose it for a day–because nothing goes better with the big game than gourmet nachos and spicy wings.

    Totally with you on not dieting for special occasions – it’s exactly that kind of mentality that makes dieting impossible to maintain! Instead, just healthify your superbowl food!

    -Serve your wings with the sauce on the side so you can go easy on the Buffolo/Barbeque sauce
    -Serve whole grain tortilla chips with nutritious and fresh guacamole
    -Use creative and healthy dip recipes like these: http://ohsheglows.com/2012/02/01/easy-super-bowl-recipe-black-bean-chili-dip/
    -Make a fruit salad instead of a pasta salad laden with mayo

    I’m puzzled how Madonna got the halftime show over John Mellencamp.

    Um, possibly its a matter of Grammy awards.. Madonna’s 9 to J. Cougar’s measly ONE (and that was for “hurts so good”, just sayin’). Or is it her fashion sense vs his lack there of. Or popularity… Staying power? Being born in Indianapolis should not automatically default you to Half Time status my friend…respectfully, of course… Megan ;)
