Signs You Might Be Hosting A Super Bowl Party

by Gina Valley

Are you wondering what sort of mayhem has beseeched your home?  Perhaps you’re hosting a Super Bowl party.

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if on Saturday your son sits down on your sofa, and the thing breaks. Collapses.  No warning – just kerplunk (I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a sofa breaking before. I’m not sure I would’ve believed it now if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes).

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if your garbage disposer and your oven are making the same groany, angry, near-death noise.

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if your “sports crazy, always-watches-the-game-with-you, his favorite team is playing” teen, decides that he should stay out all night Saturday night for a marathon video game session with friends, insuring he’ll be exhausted and grumpy during the game.  And, he forgets to ask permission to go.  And, he forgets to mention he is leaving.  And, he forgets to mention he’s borrowing your car (insuring that you’ll be exhausted and grumpy during the game, too).

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if, for the first time in the history of the world, CostCo is out of sour cream.  This might also be a sign that the world is coming to an end, so I recommend that you pick up some extra cases of water bottles while you’re there.

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if your 15 year old daughter announces she has just become a strict vegan.  If you missed the announcement, don’t worry, she’ll re-announce it to every person who enters your home or eats something for the next 3 months. Your 11 year old son will help to make it a smooth transition for her by announcing to her “Mmmm.  Animal parts!” every time he eats any non-vegetable item.

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if someone has tried to flush that stupid stuffed toy seal you picked up in Nova Scotia, again, and the guest bathroom toilet is so clogged that the pipes are shaking.

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if your dog decides that, since it is so cold outside, the dining room table’s leg is a tree.  As are, apparently in his opinion, most of the chairs.

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if your family’s meals for the day center around chips, dip, hot wings, chili, and antacid tablets.

You might be hosting a Super Bowl party if you know when your husband says, “Hey Baby, I’ve got something big for you!” he’s talking about the new 72” HDTV he bought on the way home from work “so everyone can see the game clearly.”   He’s a giver like that.

Laugh Out Loud!

Do you plan to watch the Super Bowl?  Are you getting together with friends or family, or do you prefer to go solo so you have complete control of the remote?

I am so glad I got to share a laugh with you, Susan! I hope you have a great time, even though you are hosting again! 🙂

I think one of the main reasons I like to host parties is because it forces us to clean the house thoroughly. It’s amazing how much easier it is to get everyone to help for that, as opposed to just cleaning for our own good. I wish we could have a party everyday!

I used to be a superbowl party guy but now I’m a solo guy ever since I let my wife invite some friends over for a superbowl party at our house one year. The things is that NONE of them liked football and they talked the whole time until Bruce Springstein got on stage for the halftime show. Now while I probably made more attention to Beyonce than I did to the game this year, I was interested in the actual result once they made a game out of it!

I totally understand. I like to wear my “Shhh! Mommy is watching the game!” shirt.
I like to watch and hear the game, so we have 2 rooms. One is for the football people. The other is for the chatters. There is a TV in both. The food is in the middle. We can all meet up at halftime and after the game.
The game surprised me this year. I thought the 49ers would carry it by at least 7 point. I was so wrong!
