Before we get started with some of the more intricate details, let's make sure we have the basics in place.
If you don't have a television with a screen that's at least 45 inches, then you probably shouldn't be inviting more than three people over to watch the Super Bowl.
I'm not trying to be a tech snob, but think about it. Trying to cram 15 to 20 people around a 37-inch television is just not practical. You're just asking for some frustration from your guests.
Some wise guy is going to pull out a magnifying glass while he attempts to focus on the action.
You don't need that.
Secondly, as it relates to the television, please make sure you have high definition. This is 2013; anything else is grounds for people to refuse to remove their coats upon entering your home.
If you're all about this football life, you've already sacrificed to obtain a television up to Super Bowl Sunday's standards, but I like to be thorough in my instructional slideshows.
If you live in a studio apartment, you may want to change the designation of your shin-dig from Super Bowl Party to "just having two friends over to watch the game."
Again, I'm not trying to be a living quarters snob; the economy is rough and budgets are tight. However, that doesn't mean your company has to be.
Please have a roaming area and watching area to accommodate all your guests.
Now let's get to the good stuff.
