5 Ways to Maximize Your Super Bowl Experience This Weekend


We all know how important the Super Bowl is and we’d all give just about anything to be in the stadium with the players, fans and noise. The reality is, tickets are expensive and next to impossible to come­ by. Guess what that means? Men and women, fans and families have to find a way to bring that Super Bowl energy into their homes. It’s completely possible to recreate the experience and here are 5 tips on how to maximize your Super Bowl experience from the comfort of your own home.

  1. Get your gear on – 

    You’d never want to be caught inside the stadium without some legit team apparel. In order to do this, you’re going to have to choose a team. No one likes a flip-­flopper. Make a decision and stick with your gut, even if you choose to root for the underdog. Once you know who you are cheering for, go all out! ­ paint your face, color your hair, put on a jersey and pull out that giant foam finger. You won’t regret it and everyone will consider you the life of the party!

  2. Food – 


    Food, food, food ­ what more really needs to be said? Bring on the cheese ball, queso dip, ribs, soda and more. Turn on that grill and cook up whatever your tailgating heart {or stomach} desires. If you’re needing to feed a crowd, grab a fruit or veggies tray, but don’t forget those Super Bowl favorites. If you’re needing a great chicken wing recipe, click {here}.

  3. Entertain your kids- 


    If you have kids at home and are watching the Super Bowl at home, you’ll need to find a way to distract your kiddos so you can fully enjoy every single second of football heaven. You can always turn on a movie upstairs, pull out a few puzzles, or put together some football activities. Planning activities not your thing? All you have to do is put up a couple pieces of tape, grab some candy and print out a Bingo card. They’ll be ready to go and entertained for hours!

  4. Do your research – 


    If you aren’t that #1 Superfan, spend some time learning how the teams got to the Super Bowl ­ know how the Seahawks beat the Packers {sorry Packer fans} and know the story behind the Patriot’s deflated footballs. It’ll go a long way with your buddies, plus you’ll be able to catch on to the game day commentary with a little background knowledge.

  5. Prepare in advance


    Did you know that TV sales spike during the days prior to the Super Bowl? They do. If you’re itching to get a newer, larger flat screen, then do it ahead of time. You don’t want to be stuck buying your second option. You may also want to check your surround sound, speakers and DVR to make sure they are working properly. And obviously, don’t forget to buy some team apparel, marinate those chicken wings, set up the kids activities and read up on the team themselves.
