Who's having one and how many people are coming?


Etiquette question...do you invite couples or just the guys? I've always kept it an all guy event. I figured if the wives come, it doubles the people, it's harder for people to get a baby sitter and they certainly can't bring their kids over. Only drawback is some people won't come without their wives. It’s Tradeoff that’s worked out so far….but I’m thinking of changing.

NICE!


But you're cutting it kinda close with the time, dont'cha think? I'd be inviting people over starting at 5:00 to give them the HD Pregame Preview!


And Beer should be mandatory!:D

Where'd you grab the Super Bowl logo? I looked for one this weekend to do this years invitations but couldn't find one readily copy/pastable online anywhere. Looks great btw...

I'm not having a superbowl party, but I am looking forward to seeing it in HDTV. I invited my dad over to watch since he's never seen HDTV programming before. We used to have superbowl parties every year but since having a baby, I haven't had big parties in a while.

At the risk of being politically incorrect....


I would just invite the guys. In my experience the women who are not into football but come to be social start talking about non football things in the middle of the game. Very distracting.


On the other hand, if they are into football then come on down!!!

Right now I have 10 people coming over, half of which are women. I don't see any problems. 3 of the women are in football pots, so there will atleast be some interest in the game from them.


Also, I will be PPV the Lingerie Bowl, so for that time, who cares what the women talk about :)


And someone has to bring the food, right? :)

On the other hand, if *your* wife or significant other is not into football, she can entertain all the guests who are not really into football. That's the way it works at my place. Wife has the "non-football" people upstairs and I entertain the guys (and some football gals) downstairs!

Now, if you REALLY want to have some fun, do this:


Go to your local supermarket about 45 minutes before kickoff. Go watch the express checkout lines. They are filled with men, ages 20-50 or so, all buying the same stuff - chips, beer, drinks, dip, etc... And ALL are angrily looking at their watches, the long lines, the SLOOWWW checkout teller and all the other "idiots" in line ahead of them.


IOW, a great place to observe type "A" behavior. :)

I invited all guys (8) and it starts at 5:00. If they ask about their wives I say "sure bring them, my wife will be home". Otherwise, I just sent the invites to the guys.

Anybody have any good ideas to share about making a Superbowl party better? Anything related to food, drinks, decorations, activities, etc.?


One thing I will be doing is having a second smaller TV off to the side that gets it's signal off Tivo. I will keep it at about a 10 second delay from the main screen. That way anything that you miss on the main big TV can be watched as you wish on the side one. FFing, RWing, etc.

Yep. Same deal here. We set up a bunch of card tables in our family room, (the 56" is in the living room), and the wives bring over all their (everyone groan together now ;) ) scrapbooking stuff. We hire a baby sitter to just make sure the little ones aren't beating each other silly, fill our daughter's room w/floor pillows and fire up the Disney movies. Everyone's happy.

I will be having at least 30 people coming. We have 2 main tv's with HD feeds that will be used. The living room and the game room. My wife is a football fan. We have designated the master bedroom, also HD, to house the wifes and girlfriends if they want to watch the game but not pay as much attention to it. We will also have Super Bowl decorations around the house.


If you want to make the game more fun, have a little bet. For $2 per person whoever chooses the winner by how many points, with a tie-breaker final score will win the pot. If not the person closest will win. That way everyone gets more into the game. Or there are other types of gambling that can be done.


Don't forget the large Chik-fil-a nuggets tray!!
