The Super Bowl is just another excuse for thousands of people to drink, eat and have a great time as they tune in to the biggest sporting event of the year. Friends and family throughout the nation will gather together Sunday to watch two teams duke it out over the coveted the Vince Lombardi Trophy. This year, the Seattle Seahawks will defend their title against the New England Patriots. While the event is fun in itself, adding a drinking game into the mix can liven up any party, so long as everyone drinks responsibly. Check out the game we created below and share it will with your party goers at this year’s bash.
Great Catches: The two best teams in the NFL are facing off and there are bound to be some awesome catches, especially with wide receivers like Jermaine Kearse and Brandon LaFell involved. Every time either team makes a great catch, take a sip.
Field Goals: They might not be as exciting, but field goals help put points on the board. To make them a little more fun, every time either team kicks a FG, take a shot.
Touchdowns: As displayed in the NFC Championship game, the best way to win a football game is to get touchdowns. Every time either team gets a TD, take a sip.
Interceptions: There were tons of interceptions during the playoff games that ultimately led the Seahawks and the Patriots to make it to the Super Bowl in Arizona. Every time there’s an interception, by either team, take a shot.
Cheating: The Patriots have a reputation of cheating. Remember that South Park episode? After their playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts, quarterback Tom Brady was accused of using deflated footballs. The alleged scandal has become known as “Deflategate,” because a scandal can’t be legitimate unless it has the word “gate” at the end of it. Every time someone at your party accuses the Pats of cheating, take a shot.
Halftime: Katy Perry and John Legend are taking the stage for this year’s halftime performance. Take a shot if Katy Perry has a wardrobe malfunction or if John Legend sings off-key. Take a sip each time they sing a different song.
Game Over: Take a shot if your team wins. Take a shot if you team loses.
Super Bowl XLIX will be broadcast live on NBC Sunday from the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Kickoff time is 6:30 p.m., EST.
