Don’t be The Guy Everyone Hates at The Super Bowl Party [VIDEO/SURVEY]
Are you ready for some football? Well, the biggest game of the season Super Bowl XLVII (47) is Sunday. Fire up the grill for a tail gate party with lots of brats, BBQ, some beer and good friends. And if you happen to get invited to a party don't be the party pooper, the one guest who annoys everyone else trying to watch the game.
According to a survey by CouponCabin, the worst thing you can do is act like you're an expert on football, food, or the commercials. The one thing that drives me nuts is trying to watch the game or the commercials and everyone is talking so loud you can't even hear the game. Have fun without being a distraction to everyone else who may want to actually watch the game.
According to a survey by CouponCabin, here are the six things that will get on everyone's nerves.
#1. Don't act like you're an expert on football, food, or the commercials. No one's going to be impressed that you know what a Cover Two defense is. REALLY!
#2. Leave the remote alone. Don't change the channels or adjust the volume. This is a big NO NO especially if you are a guest. Ask for permission if need be but don't touch the remote.
#3. It's a party, but you need to know when to stop talking. Be quiet and watch SOME of the game. After all what's the point of watching the game if all you are doing is talking.
#4. You can root for a team, but don't go overboard and become the Super Fan. Leave some of your 49ers clothes at home, and DON'T do the Ray Lewis dance every time Baltimore scores.
#5. You know there's going to be plenty of junk food at the party so don't tell everyone that you're on a diet and worry about all the calories. It's a party...enjoy!
#6. Finally, It's not cool to say, quote, "I only watch for the commercials." That's what EVERYONE says. It's become such a cliché and the truth is that most Super Bowl commercials don't live up to the hype.
