Let me first just tell you how big of a fan of the Super Bowl I am. I remember when I was just 8 years old, begging my parents to let me stay up to watch the ending of the Super Bowl. They were having a Super Bowl party and invited a bunch of friends. Even at 8 years old, I knew everything about football. I knew how the scoring system worked, and before the game started, I would always read as much as I could about the two teams and their quarterbacks. So I begged and begged my parents to let me stay up with them until the party was over. They agreed, and this led to the beginning of my Super Bowl party obsession.
As I grew older, the Super Bowl became more of a thing that people wanted to party to. My parents let me have my first official Super Bowl party when I was 14. I invited a bunch of buddies over, grilled some burgers, fried some wings, and had an awesome time. As the years went on, I was the person known to throw the best Super Bowl parties. People from my school would literally wait for invitations just so they could come. Every year, my theme was basically the same (centered around football obviously), along with food and activities. For some reason, it worked out and became almost like a tradition. The party would start early, and we would divide the guests into two teams to play touch football. My parents had a huge backyard, so people would bring layers of clothing and we would play football outside. After our game, I would grill burgers and hotdogs as well as make fried chicken wings. Some years we would also order pizza depending on how many people came (everyone). We would eat just before the game started, and then when the game actually came on, I would bring out the guacamole and other assortments of appetizers and easy finger food.
Each year was always a success, so as I grew older, the party would get bigger. I’ve started this blog to half help, half document the craziness that happens at my Super Bowl parties.
