The Super Bowl is the pinnacle of American sports and pop culture. It’s also one of the best nights of the year for partying. What better way to add some fun to your Super Bowl viewing experience than with a drinking game? That way, hearing about the Harbaughs being brothers (did anyone realize brothers were coaching against one another in the Super Bowl?) and Ray Lewis’s impending retirement can actually be useful. Ray Lewis (Photo by Keith Allison via CC BY-SA 2.0) Before I lay out the rules, here are the steps you need to take to get prepared. Getting Started To prepare, you’ll need to do the following things: Find a fun environment to watch the games. A house with a great TV setup and ample seating for guests is ideal, but a local bar with a fun atmosphere will work too (just remember to have a designated driver). Secure plenty of beverages of your choice. I always opt for really trashy beers of the sort you’ll see advertised during the game, but feel free to get creative. Just make sure that you have enough. You don’t want to have to make a drink run during a crucial part of the game. Stock up on snacks. You can also have guests bring along snacks to help make a diverse spread. As the drinks flow, you and your guests are sure to need to balance things out with some quality food. Invite people who want to have fun. This is the most important part. If you don’t have good company to share the evening with, what fun is a drinking game? Make the necessary arrangements with work. If you intend to get really wild on Super Bowl Sunday, it is wise to not let it interfere with your job. For the truly committed NFL partiers, see if you can arrive a little later. You don’t want to be miserable for an entire work day just because some of my absurd drinking game rules came through. Have plenty of headache medicine, water or Gatorade, and energy drinks available for the morning. This is standard protocol for hangover defense. Again, respect your limitations. It is great to get wild and party hard, but make sure you don’t overdo it. I can’t stress this enough. [Disclaimer: The suggestions and drinking game in this post are meant to be fun and liven up your football viewing experience. It is extremely important, however, that you drink responsibly. Know your personal limits, don't drive after drinking, and of course, only imbibe if you are of legal drinking age. Take care of yourselves and enjoy.] With that out of the way, let’s move on to the Super Bowl XLVII drinking game rules! Super Bowl XLVII Drinking Game Rules Take one drink each time one of the following things happen: The Harbaughs being brothers is discussed. A kickoff or punt results in a touchback. Either team records a sack. A Ravens running back catches a pass. Frank Gore runs for more than 5 yards on a carry. Colin Kaepernick runs for a first down or touchdown. Either team commits a turnover. A personal foul penalty is called. Bernard Pierce carries the ball. Randy Moss catches a pass. Jim Harbaugh is shown chewing out a referee. Ray Lewis’s retirement is mentioned by the broadcast team. Joe Flacco “eliteness” is discussed. Bernard Pollard knocks a player out of the game. Vernon Davis catches a pass. Any offensive play results in a gain of 20 or more yards. The Kaepernick/Alex Smith quarterback controversy in discussed. The words “deer antler spray” are said on the broadcast. A play is reviewed by the replay official. Torrey Smith catches a pass. There you have it, folks. Those rules should be plenty to get you good and drunk Sunday night. Please, please, please remember to be safe. Know your limitations and cut yourself off if this thing gets too out of control. Make sure you have a designated driver if you are travelling after the game. ********* Follow me on Twitter @keithmullett ********* The post Super Bowl XLVII Drinking Game – San Francisco 49ers vs. Baltimore Ravens appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
