Ten things to know about SUPER BOWL XLV and where to find them
Ok, our local paper carried a section on the Super Bowl and highlighted what needs to be known if you’re going to have a chance of sounding like you know what’s up! I admit to being surprised by some of them … but then I did “pass” if I graded on a curve …
So what are the 10?
First and second – you gotta know about the teams (and the order goes in whichever you prefer.) So you can check out the Steelers or the Packers by clicking on their name and going directly to their respective websites.
Third is the “history” of the most talked about Super Bowl commercial … the 1984 Apple crashing into the IBM “big Brother.” If you don’t get this oblique reference … stick with your own age group and it will never come up!
Fourth – Just say what the person next to you says … the next time the situation seems the same. I’d avoid repeating any comments about the quarterback and center’s apparent closeness … that usually only gets a laugh the first time.
Fifth – Laugh loudly about Troy’s shampoo commercial (That’s Steelers safety Troy Polamalu – not Helen of Troy.)
Sixth – Finds some ribs to bring to the party … buy some, make some … but "ribs is in!"
Seventh – Find something for the kids to do … in the “other room” – consider that the Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl has their kick-off scheduled for 3:00 PM.
Eighth – Dress the part – you know – cheese hats and black and yellow face paint … and if you’re asking what does that mean … consider the following note:
Ninth – Gather your less frantic friends and go to a movie … you’ll be the only ones there … so finding a good seat should not be a problem.
Tenth – At least tune in for half-time; this is not the time for “snacking” … do that during the coaches’ challenges …. Or the commercials … use smaller plates so it doesn’t take as long to “fill up!”
Above all – remember to have fun … after all … it’s just a game!
