Sticking to our superstitions!
No matter how ridiculous they might seem everyone has superstitions when it comes to playing and/or watching sporting events. Some of our favorites:
Don’t move spots… once you have chosen your seat keep it for the whole game…as long as your team is winning!
Wear the same clothes as last winning game!
Sport your favorite players Jersey and if luck isn’t going your way lose the Jersey or at least turn it inside out.
Watching with good friends.
Let’s face it one of the best parts about Super Bowl (besides the actual game) is getting together with your friends, relaxing and having good food!
These are always fun!
- Coin Toss – Head or Tails
- National Anthem – Over / Under 2 Minutes
- Will There Be Score in The First Quarter
Patriots Tea Party Punch
While beer seems to be to “go to” beverage during football games, this is a fun drink for game day and helps to mix things up a bit!
1 cup brewed Earl Grey tea, cooled
1/2 cup spiced rum
1/2 freshly squeezed orange juice (2-3 oranges)
1/4 cup Cointreau
Maraschino cherries or cranberries for garnish
- Stir the tea, rum, orange juice and cointreau in a cocktail shaker or pint glass.
- Fill 4 lowball or punch glasses with ice

Just because you can’t be at the big game doesn’t mean you have miss out on the pre-game festivities. Hosting a tailgate party before kick off can be a fun way to start the celebration early. Invite some friends over, light grill and toss the ball around.
Regardless of whether you watch the game with a small group of friends or in a crowded bar, Super Bowl Sunday is one of our favorite days of the year!
