• Football has become a national obsession in the United States. Baseball may be the national pastime, but football has been crowned as the most popular sport in the country since the mid-1960s. There's no doubt that the most celebrated day is Super Bowl Sunday. It seems that everyone stops what they are doing and watches the game and that football fans love to host and/or attend Super Bowl parties.

    Big-Screen and Hi-Def TV

    It's a Super Bowl party, so you better make sure you give a great presentation of the game. You need to show it on a big-screen, high-definition television so you can see all the big hits and great plays in super sharp focus. Not only will it give you access to the action on the field, you'll be able to see every grimace and every line of worry on the coach's face as he contemplates what he sees going on in the game. This will give you and your guests greater insight into what the coaches and players are thinking and doing than many of the fans in attendance.

    Food and Drink

    This is the time to break out the mini-smorgasbord. People love to eat before the game, during the game and after the game. Start off with some chicken wings, meatballs, a tray full of vegetables (healthy), and chips and dip. Once the game starts, have a huge submarine sandwich that your guests can easily slice and take with them as they return to the family room to watch the game. You might want to offer the traditional ball park food---hot dogs---as well. Have cakes, cookies, candy and other desserts available as the game hits the fourth quarter. Make sure you have beer, wine and harder drinks available as well as soda, water and healthy juices.

    Gambling Games

    Having a few betting opportunities for your guests can make the game even more enjoyable, especially if the Super Bowl turns into a blowout. They don't have to be for big money. Bet on who will score the first touchdown. Pick a square in the final score pool. Or pick the longest touchdown, and it will make a big day that much more interesting.
