If you took yesterday’s Saturday Morning Sports Trivia, you learned that the Super Bowl is the #2 day of food consumption in America. The only day that beats it is Thanksgiving. There is just something about football that makes people want to eat. That’s what the Super Bowl and especially Thanksgiving are all about, right? It’s the American way.
I have been to my fair share of Super Bowl parties in my 23 years of life, and I have compiled the most accurate list of the best Super Bowl foods. Argue with me.
Of course. The timeless classic. Wings are the best thing to eat with any sports game you are watching on tv. Buffalo Wild Wings built an empire on it even though their wings are disgusting. Have some respect for yourself and go to Roosters. 1.33 billion wings are expected to be eaten Super Bowl Sunday so here are some things to remember: ranch is better than bleu cheese and don’t look down on people eating boneless wings. I will defend them until the day I die.
There is a reason that the Super Bowl is the #1 day for pizza delivery every year. It is impossible to keep it out of this list. There are 12.5 million pizzas on average made for one game alone. Pizza is just how you feed a crowd. Take notes, Jesus.
This has become the go-to staple of every get-together. Whenever I go to someone’s house for a game, I always ask “who all gon’ be there?” and “who is bringing the Buffalo chicken dip?” Not all buff chick dips are made equally. A great rule of thumb is to have your girlfriend or one of your buddies’ girlfriends make it. Hasn’t failed me yet. If you are a girl, get really good at making it and your boyfriend’s friends will want to keep you around forever.
Be careful with chili. Too much of it will scramble your mind and you will begin to miss parts of the game. There are only a few things better than a hot and spicy bowl of chili on a cold February night. Pro tip: Kevin from The Office was spot-on with his chili secret. UNDERCOOK THE ONIONS. It makes all the difference… just don’t drop it. As always, I am here to argue, and noodles go in chili.
You shut your mouth or I will do it for you. Vegetable trays are the unsung hero of every party, especially the Super Bowl party. No more pizza, no more wings, what is left? The veggie tray. It is always there for you. Also, after a whole day of eating wings, pizza, buff chick dip and chili; have a couple carrots smothered in ranch and tell yourself that you were healthy. You’re already lying to yourself about having work/class tomorrow, so why not lie to yourself about gaining 5 pounds in one sitting.

Matching– Match the NFL Team to the Super Bowl they won.
The oracle has spoken. The future telling NFL analyst, Tony Romo, has revealed the final score of Super Bowl LIII to us mere mortals.
Romo said that the final score will be 28-24, but he didn’t stop there. He went full Oracle at Delphi and told us that the team that has the ball last will be the team that loses. They will be in the middle of the last chance effort and fail to get the points they need.
I hang on to every last word of Tony Romo, almost to a fault. I am still waiting for him to give us the winning team even though I know I will never get it. Reason being, he is calling the game and cannot show any bias. Why not? Jay Bilas does it all the time. I am not a betting man, that’s more Parmesan Don and Juice’s thing, but I would become one if Tony Romo was telling me what to do.
Lastly, I would like to say congratulations to Tony Romo on making it to his first Super Bowl. It would have been his second if Dez made a football move.
If you didn’t already know, Tony Romo never made it to the Super Bowl as a player. Some call him the best that never was; the B.O.A.T. that never made it to the ‘ship, if you will. There are plenty of reasons about why Romo never made it such as:
Bad coaching, no defense, Dez not making a football move, no one knowing what a football move is, Cole Beasley being his best receiver some years, poor ownership, having fewer wins in Jerryworld than Alabama one year and many others. Basically, it all boils down to a perfect storm that ended up with Romo always falling flat in big games.
Flash forward a couple years to his color commentary career.
CBS will be broadcasting Super Bowl LIII and have selected Jim Nantz and Tony Romo to call the game. I always knew he would make it to a Super Bowl, and just like Romo, I am always right.
I love this so much. Jim Nantz is one of the greatest announcers of all time and Tony Romo has completely changed the color commentary game. The analytical knowledge and psychic-level play predictions enhances the watching experience to a level never before seen.
Romo is on another level when it comes to game calling. Expect this to be the first Super Bowl of many.
