    Watching it at my apartment down here at school. Having a bunch of people over: my buddies at school, friends from home, and my girlfriend is even making the trek from her school which is 5 hours away(I regret to inform you all that she's a huge Giants fan. I may just give her the boot if the Giants prevail, though I'm sure I won't need to worry about that!) I hope everybody has a blast watching the game. Cherish these moments and realize how fortunate we are to be fans of such an elite franchise. GO PATS!

    Waterford Ireland. Game starts at midnite. The bar is staying open at the hotel just for us. Worst part is I could have got a ticket for the game and I'd normally been a hundred miles from it.

    I'm going to watch in here in Hawaii after 18 holes of golf with the Son-inLaw.  he's a Cowboys fan so he hate the Giants so I'll invite in to the house for the game.  We'll send my Wife and Daughter out to the mall with a pocket full of cash so i can scream at the TV on bad Plays and bad calls.

    I'll pick up a 12 pack of Sam Adams for me and a 12 pack or Bud Light for the Kid and make a caldron of Boston Bakes beans with cut up hot dogs in it for the game and the loudest f@rt wins and the wettest f@rt loses...

    I live on the NE-NY borderline near Storrs, CT Going to a big house party with a 60" and 2 other tv's going, unfortunately it is about 10 Giants fans to 6 Pats fans and like 15 diff teams/wives and gf's types... ... but I avoided this crowd in '07, the people I have watched every super bowl with since '01 except that one, which I watched with my parents (and was kicked upstairs to watch the 4th quarter alone in my childhood turned exercise room with a tiny 19" since i was swearing and pacing around so much) b/c I felt I couldn't handle all my loudmouth g-men fan friends this year I will sit shoulder to shoulder with them and take my chances

    Man I couldn't do it, especially with NY fans, there would be a fight right at the opening kickoff.. Lol .. I'm going to watch this one solo, only go to Super Bowl parties when the Patriots arn't involved..

    I have been deployed or at a school for every Pats SB since 01.  I saw the 96 game.  I though I would see the game in 07, I was in Iraq and the game came on at 3am I think so I set my alarm.  We were a day crew and another team covered the night shift.  At 2:30am we were woke up for a mission (night crew was already on a mission).  I was so excited about the game I thought everyone was messing with me about there being a mission but they weren't.  I left and got back in the fourth quarter.  It was the only time that deployment we had a night mission. This year I'm deployed to a range in Germany for Medevac coverage.  We don't plan to fly on SB sunday (which is really like 1am monday) and hopefully we don't get any medevac calls.  I expect to be watching the game.  2 bad things, no SB commercials on armed forces network (they make their own horrible commercials), nobody delivers pizza at 1am.  We all bought frozen pizzas. Actually 3 bad things, no drinking during Medevac coverage.

    I had the choice between a friend's house (and 20+ people I have no idea who they are) or the Sports Bar I watch all of the games at......Sports Bar with fellow fans/friends wins.....

    In Response to Re: What are YOU doing for the SB? : Oh yeah. Which bar did you end up going to? The one on the Leidseplein? 
    Posted by zbellino



    Went to two actually.  Started at the Satellite Sports Cafe on the Leidseplein.  But they shut down at 4 am (which was right at halftime), so I went over to another bar, Cocos Outback, on Thorbeckeplein. They closed at 5 am, but let me stay in the bar till the game was over . . . around 5:30.  Really nice people at both bars.  I had a blast, though I was feeling it Sunday after not sleeping for something like 48 hours.  

    Love the city, by the way.  It's just one continuous party all night long.  


    And here's a picture from inside the Amsterdam sports bar--all Pats' fans there!


    And for the heck of it, here's my view of the Ravens game from Foxboro.

    In Response to Re: What are YOU doing for the SB? : I am with Shizzly and his bi-polar behavior on this one. I usually don't much of an appettite in situations like this.  I usually try to eat, but once I start getting amped up, it brings me back to my athletic years and how I used to be on edge, except I can't play in these games to take away that edge. hehe Dips and wings probably early afternoon, but after that. it's all about trying to drink too much.  Bong at the ready for a Pats win.
    Posted by RustyGriswold



    Yeah, Bong hits and Bourbon. Swords and Tequilla. AS much as I hate to be Hungover for work on Monday Morning I think I'll need at least 10 oz of top shelf Bourbon to enjoy this game to it's fullest. I'm making a ton of food too but I would rather eat early and drink late.

    I watching with my beautiful wife at my boss' home, (A huge Giants fan) with the other exec team members. (All Giants Fans) All fun folks.

    Will stay for first half(great spread) then head home. I figure on a 30 point lead at the half so don't want to watch grown men cry.

    This feels like the last Denver game. Brady has listened to Eli talk all week with talking heads discussing how TB has not had a great year. D has heard sh-- all week and this one of for Myra!

    I see a bad day for the Giants!!

    Still up in the air, but it appears as if I'll be watching the game with a neighbor. Hardcore Pats fan as well, so all is good. He had a 60" TV, and some wonderful furniture. 

    It's the exact same place that I/we watched the second Pats-Jets game earlier this season, and we'll be sitting in the exact same chairs/couches that we sat in last time, each with two bottles of Blenheim ginger ale. It's been a tradition between me and my Old-Man all season, and I shared the tradition with my buddy, and the result was a beatdown of the Jets. Gotta keep it going for the Super Bowl!

    GO PATS!!!!

    I am still deciding -- go to the party that a Boston friend throws every year (I'm in LA).  It's packed with Boston people, but some don't give a ____ about the game so sometimes it's hard to concentrate.  And -- worst of all -- this guy is not rich so he has NO HDTVs!

    Or, I stay home and watch it on the 48-inch with the wife.

    Going skiing at mad river Glen. Should be sunny in the 20's. Not exactly golfing weather here in VT in FEBRUARY.... dudes? Skiing bumps and getting physically worked over gets me ready... Then set the tape and watch it alone where I can pound kamikazes on the rocks and not have to drive home at 11:00 completely spent and of course I can shout irrationally and throw stuff. This of course requires blowing off my girlfriend and my neighbors party... They just don't get it.

    Going to be in Maui with the Family.  Probably try to golf early because the game will start at 1:30 over there.  I'll probably watch it at the Rusty Harpoon just north of Lahaina.

    Preferably a lone, i charish these moments.... trust me that I friends, but I hate watching football with a crowd.

    At very most I may watch with my bro at my rents house, but that's as far as I go.

    Watched the first superbowl with friends and acquaintances, and that was a mistake.. felt very fake.

    At the O'club at a Military Base in Germany. Almost un-American not to stay open late for SB and serve a fantastic buffet before and during halftime. I get these privledges from my past but work at the base Hospital as a visiting professional for the Gov't. Some three sweety Nurses I invited as guests young enough to me my daughters, plenty of young flyboys to explain the game. A Pats win will suffice!!!

    I'm with you Getzo . . . the problem with watching a big game at a party is it's too hard to concentrate on the game. Too many people yapping about other things. I even find sports bars distracting.  I feel the same way when I go to the games.  I've got four season tickets and I only bring friends and relatives who are totally focused on the game.  I don't freakin' care about your son's new job or your golf game last week when it's third and two and we need a stop!  It's fun to watch with others--but only if they are as totally focused and nuts about football as you are.  If they've got things other than football on their minds, I don't want them anywhere near me . . .

    Eating Chilli and getting "lubed up" as per the one time instructions of our leader and genetically superior overlord (yeah.....that would be Tom Brady). In fact I have already started drinking......late liquid lunch I guess...
