A convergence of all things American is taking place Sunday when the Eagles take on the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.That’s right. Patriots. Eagles. Lots of food. Over-hyped event. Expensive commercials. All for a sport we call football even though the rest of the world calls soccer “football.” It doesn’t get much more American than that.
Whatever your team, or whether or not you know what a touchdown is, Sunday is the perfect time to root for ‘Merica. Grab a beer, a few friends, something fried and throw a ‘Merica-themed Super Bowl party that would make your country proud. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Fried chicken — or fried anything, for that matter.
Cut-off tank top
Cheap beer, none of that fancy microbrew, craft stuff.
Eagles: Statues of them. Pictures of them. Live ones you keep as pets.
Grilled meat, any slab will do.
Country music playing loudly. Classic rock works as a second option.
Volume. The louder the TV is, the louder the music is, the louder everyone will be.
Hamburgers, pizza or any combination of each.
Pick-up truck, and not a poster of one, it should be parked in or near your party venue. A Harley Davidson will also work.
Cheese in a can.
Beer belly, if you have one handy.
Buffalo wings — called such even though buffalo don’t have wings and they’re made of chicken meat.
NASCAR, playing on a side-screen somewhere.
Tattoos, preferably of an eagle.
