On the Spot: Super Bowl LI
What are your Super Bowl traditions, and who do you think is going to win the game?
Austin Keefer, Staff Reporter
"I don’t really keep up with it much, but I watch the commercials sometimes. I just watch the Youtube clips, not anything in particular, and very casual."
"Unfortunately, I will be working during the Super Bowl, but my manager is a Pats fan, so we’ll be watching the game together. Usually, my family will hang out and watch the Super Bowl together because we’re from Boston so we’re big Patriots fans, and not many people from around here like the Patriots. I think the Patriots are going to win by a lot because they’re a better team, and it’ll be a...
"I get with my friends and family and watch the game and the commercials and bet on the game and who’s going to win and who’s going to lose. My favorite commercials have to be the M&M commercials and the Mountain Dew commercial with the Puppy Monkey Baby. I’m sure it’ll be a high scoring game, but New England’s gonna take it because no one can stop Bill Belichick and Tom Brady."...
"I just chill out with my family and sit around and watch the game. We usually have finger foods like wings and chips. I think the Patriots are going to win, and I think it’ll be a low-scoring game."
"I invite my grandparents over to my house, and we cook a feast, and we watch the Cowboys. I think the Patriots will win in a high-scoring game."
"It’s Sunday afternoon, and I’ll get together with my host family, and we’ll watch it together and we’ll eat popcorn and chicken. In Europe we don’t have American football, so this will be my first Super Bowl in America."
"I usually just get with the family, maybe have a cookout, get on the couch, have some other family over, and then we watch the Super Bowl, and I’ll be going for the Patriots. I think their overall team is really good, but the Falcons are pretty good too, and they’ve built up a good organization over the past couple of years, but the Patriots are going to take it this year."...
"I tend to either go out with a bunch of friends to a restaurant and watch the game on the big screen and get pizza and nachos or maybe get together with the family and just have a bunch of finger foods and have a lot of fun playing cards and board games while we’re watching the game. But I think my favorite tradition is rooting for the underdog. And this year, of course, since the Dallas Cowboy...
"Usually we get some queso and chips and eat that, and then we get some sodas and watch the game. I won’t be rooting for the Patriots, I’m just going to say that. Anyone but the Patriots. I don’t care who’s in the Super Bowl, I just don’t want the Patriots to win."
