Plus I know people who do it just to see the commericals
This is me. I DVR it, then fast-forward through the game itself to watch the commercials.

I'm in it for the food and commercials. But the ads have sucked the last few years, for the most part. Lots of money spent, but a lot of unimaginative ads.

I watch the game. I like good plays, regardless of the team. I don't care who wins, as long as the numbers are right on the pool.

As for food, chips (potato and tortilla), dip and salsa, wings with ranch dressing, maybe some deli. And cake. Gotta have dessert. No beer (I can't have alcohol and don't like beer anyway), but lots of soda.

I'm not. I'll likely be reading.
I still may fix nachos, though.

Re: American Food for Superbowl...

It's funny to see people not caring about this Superbowl, because where I live this is the first year I can remember where people are practically obsessed about it. From the way my friends and family are talking about it on Facebook you would think Christ himself has joined one of the teams. By virtue of my location I guess I am obligated to root for the 49ers as well, though I really have no interest in football and only watch for the commercials.

Actually, I love the 49ers, but I'm just not a Superbowl person. That said, there's always time for nachos.

Yeah, unless YOUR team is in the game, I don't think too many people really care about what happens.
This is very true. Of course, when one of the others in your group cares about one of the teams and you don't care about either one, it is kind of fun to root against them just to watch them squirm.

This sounds like an awesome idea. For our Super Bowl gatherings, we gave up on the Bud/Miller Lite/Coors crap almost a decade ago. This year, we'll probably just pick up a couple of cases of Newcastle or Sam Adams and call it good.

As for food, pizza seems to be the traditional Super Bowl food for most people. Basically though, if it is greasy, fatty, or full of crap that is not good for you at all you are good to go. For Sunday, we will probably have a crock pot full of chili, chips and guacamole, and assorted finger foods for the game.

Re: American Food for Superbowl...

- Chicken wings (I usually make about 3 different kinds: Hot Buffalo, BBQ and Honey Mustard). I bake the wings in the oven on a foil covered baking sheet after coating with basil, garlic powder and paprika. Less fat in this option. Then either toss in sauces or serve sauce on the side to dip their own.
- Tortilla chips topped with Homemade Chili, cheese sauce, jalapeno or banana peppers (I made these last weekend for the kids). An alternative is 7-layer dip & let them dip their own.
- Since I do not drink beer, I usually have a variety of soft drinks. We don't serve alcohol to the kids, so I don't serve it to the adults either. No drunks allowed in my house!
ALWAYS use disposable paper plates, cups, silverware, etc. It's the American way!

Re: American Food for Superbowl...

Entered a Chili cook off, so I have to make about 4 qts, roughly 4 lbs.

I'm using Turkey, and was trying to come up with a name for it,
Someone suggested 'Anal Agony!, but I'm not going to make it that hot that the spoon will disintegrate,
though that might be a fun prank
so any name suggestions would be welcome.

Lots of hot wings with both ranch and blue cheese to dip in, along with carrot and celery sticks to go along with. Tortilla chips for dipping into some delicious chili cheese dip. And lots of beer, of course.

Oh, none of my good friends are into it, just everyone that is here geographically since I'm in the Bay Area. I'm considering going to a friend's house for the game but we aren't close friends and I'm not sure if I'll just seem super awkward. But the food will be awesome ...

I actually surprised that nobody is grilling up any burgers and hot dogs for the game.

IMO, Burgers and Hot Dogs are a summer thing and, therefore, baseball not football.
