Super Bowl Snacks, Commercials, and The Half Time Show

Everyone gets excited about Super Bowl Sunday. People have parties at their house even though it’s a Sunday and everyone gets to cheer on their favorite or preferred team.  However, the game isn’t the only part of Superbowl Sunday that people get excited or anxious about. The Super Bowl food, commercials, and halftime show are a tradition when it comes to most Super Bowl parties.

My favorite football team has never made it to the Super Bowl in my lifetime so I’m always just picking a team at random to support for the Super Bowl game. That being said, I still get excited and look forward to all of the food that will be made or ordered for Super Bowl Sunday. Wings, dips, chili, chips, cupcakes, and whatever other savory foods will be at Super Bowl parties around the country. I look forward to not only eating the food but making it as well.  It’s nice to make a bunch of food with your good friends and sit around on a Sunday night relaxing and stuffing your face. The football game is pretty entertaining too, I suppose.

Another part of the Super Bowl Sunday besides the actual game and the snacks is the commercials. Everyone knows that new and iconic commercials are premiered at the Super Bowl. This has always been mine and my mom’s favorite part of Super Bowl Sunday.  We mainly pay attention to this part the most because we like to judge the best from the worst and make fun of the cheesy commercials. The commercials play a huge role in the Super Bowl and it wouldn’t be as entertaining without them.

The halftime show is something that everyone gets pumped up for as well.  People want to judge the singers and performers and see an amazing and hype halftime show.  Most people, like the food enthusiasts and commercial watchers, only like to see the halftime show and don’t pay much attention to the game.  That’s not a big problem though, because they are still contributing to ratings and watching the game somewhat.  The food, commercials, and halftime show help make the Super Bowl a fun time for everyone and not just football fanatics.

Weekly Time Wasters: Super Bowl special

The Super Bowl is this Sunday, but you should already know that. In case you’ve managed to live in this football-obsessed society without knowing the basic dynamics of the game, here’s a brief guide.

 

Now that you know the basics of the game, listen to what football players aren’t saying.

 

Richard Sherman is possibly the biggest hothead in the NFL.

 

After Sherman caught an interception to end the game and send the Seahawks to the Super Bowl, he had this to say.

 

And now, because we all know kids are impressionable…

 

With all this talk about Sherman, lets not forget about Peyton Manning; he’s an action toy!

 

The Manning brothers tell us that we can get football on our phones!

Weekly Time Wasters: The best and worst commercials

You might be kicking yourself for choosing 8 a.m. classes this semester, but Twizzlers don’t have that problem.

I believe Old Spice has finally surpassed Doritos for the best commercials on television, at least until the Super Bowl rolls around. This new commercial mixes their trademark absurdity with an almost uncomfortably catchy jingle.
