4 Things to do for the Super Bowl if You Haven’t Watched One NFL Game This Year
I’ll be honest; I’m not about that NFL life. It might be nice to go to a bar or a house party every once in a while during the season, but the game that’s on is really just background noise. I don’t follow any teams and Trevor really doesn’t either, so you’ll never find a professional football game on in our house. We’re more like The Curse of Oak Island and Game of Thrones, so if you find your household to be more like ours, here are four things you can do on Super Bowl Sunday.
1. Catch Up on Oscar Nominated Movies
The best thing about the Super Bowl is that it’s on about a month before the Oscars. This year, Football’s biggest night is on February 5, while the Oscars are on the 26th. It’s the absolute perfect weekend to go to the theater and treat yourself to weekend full of La La Land and Moonlight.
2. Binge A New Series
One problem you’ll never have again is finding a new show to watch, between network, cable, Hulu, Netflix and Amazon, there is always something new to watch. Trevor and I recently started watching The Path on Hulu and oh my goodness you guys, it’s worth a weekend binge session for sure. Or, you can also re-watch your favorite old series. I pretty much spend all my free time re-watching episodes of Sex and the City, so it’s a perfectly acceptable hobby.
3. Take A Weekend Trip
If you want to completely remove yourself from the football chaos, jet to Vegas for the weekend — lord knows there’s plenty of distraction there. If Vegas is out of the question then look at your surrounding area and find a nice bed and breakfast or maybe a spa getaway? Yes, a spa getaway sounds much better than watcing football you don’t care about in a crowded bar.
4. Attend A Super Bowl Party
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Whether you’re a fan or not, the Super Bowl can be a good reason to hang out with friends you haven’t seen in forever and eat some delicious food that’s only acceptable at a football party. Some people might say you’re jumping on the bandwagon if you pick a team to support last minute, but I say that’s just getting in the spirit of things. It’s a once-a-year event so you might as well have some fun.
The point is, not everyone is all about the Super Bowl, so if you feel like boycotting or not being accused of being a bandwagoner, at least now you have alternative options.
