With the AFC and NFC Championships this weekend, Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner! Here are some tips to help you get ready.
Get Your Gear On – While a team jersey is one way to show your spirit, another is to sport your team colors. This can be harder than you think, especially when trying to outfit your entire family. Rock Bottom T-Shirts is here to help! The styles below are available in great team colors including Purple for the Vikings, Kelly for the Jets, Royal for the Colts and Black or Gold for the Saints.

To Host or Not To Host? – Now that you have your gear, where do you go from here? First you must decide if you are going to host a party, go to a party, go to a sports bar or watch the game at home. Hosting a party is great fun and a way to make sure you are with your favorite people as your favorite team plays! Having a big screen TV is a must, along with a relaxed attitude about how clean your guests will keep your house.
Also, think hard about food. While hot dogs and hamburgers are party favorites, do you really want to be away from the screen cooking while the game is going? Consider doing a huge spread of “finger foods” you can prepare beforehand and your guests can eat while they watch the game. For some recipe and party ideas visit, Spotbowl and Fine Cooking.
If catching every moment of the game is important, you may want to consider going elsewhere for a party rather than hosting. Sports bars and friend’s parties are fun; just don’t forget they are loud and boisterous. For me, this is what makes the Super Bowl fun, “whooping” it up with your friends. If the loud crowd isn’t for you, you can always watch from home (sporting your team colors, of course) and still have plenty to talk about around the water cooler tomorrow!
Commercials – We all know someone who actually likes the commercials more than the game (and I have been that person from time to time). There are a ton of websites out there that will post the commercials and let you rate them during the game. Check out Spotbowl, which has a planned commercial line up and a blog with commercial rumors; SuperBowl-Ads where you can view a great archive of ads along with some previews for 2010; and SuperBowl Commercials, which also has great archives and has a new supposedly better-than-ever site for 2010.
Have a great Super Bowl Sunday February 7, and may your favorite team win!!
