February is here, the season of love. But before we get all hot and bothered in preparation for Valentine’s Day, we’ve got another big day to prepare for; Super Bowl Sunday.
Now ladies, I know there are some of you out there who are hardcore sports fans. When your team is playing, you are the first person at the bar, drink in hand, ready to cheer your boys on. However, there are quite a few women in this world who watch sports because their man is a fan, which is not a problem at all. Some men like their time alone, with their beer, wings, and flat screen TV to watch their favorite team flat line their opponent. However, all of that goes out of the window on Super Bowl Sunday. Whether your man invites the homies over for a Super Bowl party or brings you along for a party at the homie’s house, there are a couple things to remember to keep everyone happy on Super Bowl Sunday.
First, let’s talk to the sports chicks. If you are a football fan, you know this season has been one for the books. With the NFC East clawing their way to the top after finishing last season as the worst in the league, along with the reigning NFL MVP taking a big step backwards in the 2016 season. It’s been interesting to say the least. In the end though, it all comes down to the big game. So, here we are. If you’re a Cowboys fan like me, your team lost to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs. Which means, you have nothing really to look forward to besides a good game and the commercials. However, if your man’s team made it to the Super Bowl, there are a few things you may want to get done for Super Bowl Sunday. But, again, if you’re like me, your man’s team lost to the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the playoffs. So, all you’ve got to do is grab some snacks and enjoy the game.
Now, for those of you who are lucky enough to not be emotionally invested in a football team, there are a couple things we’ve got to go over before the big day. Let’s start with the terminology. When those cute, big, buff men in the tight pants run into the end zone, that is called a touchdown. That is all you need to know. Before the game, it is imperative that you pick a team to root for and stick with it. Don’t be that girl, screaming and yelling for both teams. But, if the sport is too boring for you to sit and watch with your man and his rowdy friends, there are a few other things you can do during Super Bowl Sunday to keep you busy. Whip up some cool, delicious snacks.
Everyone knows that football Sundays are for chicken wings, especially buffalo wings. So, in order to be the best girlfriend in the world on Super Bowl Sunday, make all of your man’s friend’s jealous with a delicious buffalo chicken dip for the big day. All you need is chicken breast, hot sauce, cream cheese, blue cheese dressing and lots and lots of shredded cheddar cheese. Poach the chicken, shred it up and put it all in a bowl. Add hot sauce and mix. Then, you want to combine the cream cheese and blue cheese dressing in a bowl. Once, everything is combined, grab a baking dish and layer the chicken, then the cream cheese combination, followed by some cheese and repeat. Place it in the oven for 20 minutes and you are good to go.
In addition, to the delicious buffalo chicken dip, grab some salsa, some guacamole and some quest, to give your guest a variety. Provide some Tostitos, some potato chips, or maybe even a couple of pizza pies, whatever it takes to keep your man and his friends, happy and full.
Next, you want to make sure your Super Bowl party is stocked with liquor and beer. Most people have to work the day after the Super Bowl, but that won’t stop the party. Half of your guest will drink to ease the pain of not making it to the Super Bowl, while the other half will drink because it’s Sunday. So, be prepared.
Finally, keep the conversations to a minimum, unless it’s about the game. There’s a chance that your Super Bowl party will have at least one New England Patriots fan or Atlanta Falcons fan, so, they are going to be into it. They will not want to hear about how you spent your Saturday, preparing for the party. Additionally, the commercials are one of the best parts about the Super Bowl, so, don’t talk during those either. You don’t want to be that girl that goes back to work on Monday without anything to talk about.
Other than that, you should be good to go.
