The Ten People You’ll Meet at Sunday’s Football Party
Consider yourself warned. If you’re planning to watch the big game with a group of friends on Sunday, then you’re probably going to run into at least one person on this list.
#1.) The Person Who’s Way Too Excited About the Halftime Show. It’s just choreographed lip-synching. But this is the person who cares more about the show than the crazy finish in the fourth quarter.
#2.) The Person Who Cares More About the Commercials Than the Game. This is the person who doesn’t talk much during the actual football, but then they crack up at every half-decent commercial.
#3.) The Serious Gambler. A lot of people put bets down on the game. But the serious gambler is the one who’ll be glued to their cell phone the whole time-always either celebrating or swearing.
#4.) The Football “Expert.” This is the guy who used to play in high school, and feels the need to break down each and every play for everyone else.
#5.) The Single Girl Who Pretends to Love Football So the Guys Will Like Her. She probably really does know who the team quarterbacks are, but that’s it. Oh, and she pretends to be interested in whatever the football “expert” had to say.
#6.) The Socially Awkward Guy Who Tries Too Hard. He’s basically the male equivalent of the single girl: He doesn’t know anything about football, but wants so badly to fit in and can you blame him?
#7.) The Person Who Mainly Comes for the Food. Chances are this person will spend a lot of time out by the grill or in the kitchen. Or this person will take the prime seat on the couch, but only to be close to the snacks.
#8.) The Guy Who Says His Team Is Just One Draft Pick Away from Next Year’s Game. Even if they were 4 and 12 this year, this guy is sure that one key player could turn it around.
#9.) The Guy Who Disagrees with Whatever the Broadcasters Said. Even if what the broadcasters say, this is the guy who will find something to disagree with.
#10.) The Guy Who Insists on High-Fiving Everyone After a Big Play. And not just the people sitting next to him. This is the guy who actually stands up and walks across the room to make sure he got everyone.
