2) commercials

3) game

4) halftime show

5) betting/rooting

@hawkeye10,
All I can come up with is that it's a good time to go WalMarting. You can expect to have the store and parking lot to yourself.

They should shut the place down out of respect, but where would those last duffles of chips come from?

Bite your tongue, you know that closing is heresy in the religion of commercialism!

That's what happens when the religion of super bowl collides with the religion of commercialism.

I think the answer would change depending on who is playing. For me this year, it's the commercials.

@engineer,
The fact that huge many douche bags have to serve chicken wings because they "Are Supposed To", has sent a skyrocketing price tag on chicken wings . Surgeons are out among the chickens humanely amputating chickens arms and outfitting them with prostheses.

Cant we just serve shrimp or schmeltz?

wings cost what they do mostly because there are now so many wing concept restaurants sucking up the supply all year long. so much for the theory that Americans are now into healthy eating.

@farmerman,
Way back when, during my lab internship at Scripps Clinic, my take home pay was $130. a month and my rent was $95... plus I had to keep a supply of nylons for proper uniform dress. Chicken necks were a fair part of my subsistence. That and Mortons's frozen spaghetti (29 cents a package). I don't remember how I cooked the necks as that was a million years ago. I still have a slight soft spot in my heart for chicken necks.

@ossobuco,
With me it is turkey necks..I always get it on thanksgiving, with lots of seasoned salt and ground red pepper.

Re wings it was only a few years ago that I would still sometimes see them at 39 cents/pound. What a difference now!

1) gathering with ferociously sports minded friends and renegades. Also at the number 1 spot and merging into 2nd place is the food.

2) game

3)rooting for a team (I don't place bets so I removed that option)

4/5) halftime show and commercials- they're tied as I don't have use for either.

@Sturgis,
My dad was a MSU marketing major and spent his life in the advertising biz, which is part of why I care about commercials.

Understood. I'm just not a huge commercial fan. Occasionally there'll be one of interest; but, many times I end up yelling at the set (I do the same at weather forecasters).

My dad started the tv dept for Foote Cone and Belding..

so we are similar on that.

I also grew up hating some commercials (Anacin, Anacin, fast fast fast relief!) - but I was interested from an early age.

The days after its over--I consider the Superbowl as the second sign of spring. Eight more days 'til pitchers and catchers go to Spring training (The third sign of Spring).

If my team isn't playing, I don't watch. I like football, but not enough to watch without my having an emotional connection to the game.

So for me the best part of the Super Bowl is the Puppy Bowl! (Animal Planet). Or I'll watch something entirely unrelated.
