The Wall Street Journal presents 22 rules of Super Bowl parties. For example:
13. A Super Bowl Party host is always super-proud of putting a TV in the bathroom. The host has three kids, all of them honor students, and is more proud of the TV in the bathroom. The host is on the cover of Time magazine. Still: more proud of the TV in the bathroom.
If the host were on the cover of Time magazine in the 1980s, he might be more proud of that. But Time magazine today, assuming it still exists? Of course he's more proud of having a TV in the bathroom. He might not even know that he's on the cover of Time magazine. Or that it still exists.
14. Beyonce is doing the Super Bowl halftime show. And no matter what your conspiracy-theory loving Aunt Betsy is saying, Beyonce is actually in New Orleans. This halftime show wasn't prerecorded in an abandoned warehouse in Columbus, Ohio, in 2009.
20. There's also going to be someone at your Super Bowl Party who says, with three minutes left in the game, "WAIT, the head coaches of the Ravens and Niners are BROTHERS? That's INCREDIBLE! Why didn't someone tell me?"
I tend to think that I follow the NFL, if not every nook and cranny, but I didn't know Jim Harbaugh's brother was a head coach until near the end of the AFC championship game.
