With the 50th annual Super Bowl right around the corner, I thought I would create a complete survival guide to help those in need. If your family is anything like mine then you will definitely need this to make it through the weekend. Let’s start with a few details; This year’s game is between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos. This is the second appearance for the Panthers since the beginning of their franchise, while it will be the Broncos’ eighth appearance. The game will be held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Sunday afternoon.

First things first, make sure you’re wearing the same team colors your family will be repping. There is nothing more deadly than a family feud, so make sure to check ahead of time. After you have you gotten that out of the way, start checking off items from this list.

Ear plugs:

Football brings out the best in all of us; Screaming and jumping around are the common side effects. My dad and uncles sound like a raging thunderstorm when they watch sports together, and I’ve always joked about bringing everyone a pair of ear plugs. But this year, it’s real.

Doritos:

What is a Super Bowl party without Doritos’ chips? Whether it is the Nacho Cheese or the Cool Ranch flavor, be sure to include them for a family treat. Not only does Doritos provide us with the great snacks, they also give us those infamous commercials that we all love.

Queso:

Cheese dip, salsa or whatever it is you call it, is most definitely a necessity. I would say that this is the most popular item on this list. Nachos would also be an alternative dish to have on the table. If you have a big family, this is a simple and fast way to feed everyone!

Drinks:

There is an endless variety of drinks to choose from. Popular drinks that I could see being on everyone’s list would be either Dr. Pepper or Sprite. Different flavors of tea or juice are also a main preference. A family’s favorite drink is probably always on top of the grocery list.

Lastly, do not forget your smile and sportsmanship. No one knows which team will claim the title but we will all argue otherwise. If your household is going to be divided on Sunday, remember that all is fair in love and football. Keep up your faith in your team and cheer on! I hope these items help complete your perfect Super Bowl Sunday.
