…famously stated by Hank Williams, Jr. on Monday night football.
For those of you who are football fans, we are approaching the BIG GAME of the year. According to the Huffington Post Americans Eat 1,083,333 Football Fields Worth of Wings on Super Bowl Sunday and Other Fun Facts. Gasp. That is causing us indigestion already. And we thought it was all about the commercials!
Let’s face it, for a lot of us the Super Bowl is all about the food. Well, food and friends.
This takes a game plan strategy of our own.
- Is your tv in the best room for viewing by a crowd? Maybe you have to move the tv from one room to a bigger room. You might consider having more than one television on. Don’t want to miss a single play!
- Who are the most fun people to invite? If you really like to watch the game, don’t invite an army. Nothing is worse than not being able to actually hear the recap of why the ref just called that ridiculous 15 yard penalty that cost you the first quarter $$$ in the office pool. And you want to hear the best commercials too, because you have to be ready to discuss the merits of the commercials Monday morning at the office.
- How much food to have? When do I serve it? Do I set it all out at once, or do we work up to those delicious bbq ribs for half-time? And what about dessert? You have to have dessert.
- What is everyone else bringing?
- Should I buy that football platter or the football shaped chips and salsa dish? Maybe both. Yes, both.
- Which Fork Do I Use? has a valuable Buffet page that illustrates how to set up a buffet, beverage and dessert table along with a separate page listing all the details you may not have thought about.
- Don’t forget the football napkins. You’re going to need lots of them for all those chicken wings.
P. S. A jaw-dropping 7 million folks won’t show up for work on Monday following the Super Bowl.
