Avoid the Super Bowl

8 Ways to Avoid the Super Bowl

If you don't know who's in the Super Bowl then you probably aren't watching it. Don't force it! Yes, the dip is delicious and there may be cute guys, but the quarters are long and the commercials longer. Find a place to hide this Sunday with my eight Super Bowl escapes.

  1. Go shopping: Ikea, the mall, grocery stores. These will quiet down shortly before kickoff.
  2. Take a day trip: Go for a ride, head to the closest city, or go snowshoeing in the woods.
  3. Go on a date: If you hate sports, the guys free Sunday might be just your type.
  4. Confront what you're avoiding: This isn't the most fun, but it's the perfect time to do whatever you've been putting off. Whether it's hanging wallpaper, doing your taxes, or revamping your résumé, Sunday is the perfect time to catch up.
  5. Have a dinner party: If nobody at your house will be watching the game, have some football-hating friends over for a cozy, Winter feast.
  6. Watch the Puppy Bowl: Eventually it may become as boring as the Super Bowl, but it will definitely be cuter.
  7. Go out to dinner: Make reservations at a hard-to-get-into restaurant. Like stores, most restaurants should be slow.
  8. Watch a movie or TV: The Super Bowl isn't the only thing on. Bravo has a Real Housewives of NYC marathon, and HBO has the Temple Grandin movie starring Claire Danes (but no new Big Love). Or hide out in your bed and watch a movie on your laptop — it's the best!

What will you be doing this Sunday?

I never watch the Super Bowl... but I always tune into the Puppy Bowl! So adorable :) This year, my sister is dragging me out to watch the Super Bowl with her. I'm not looking forward to it and I'll probably just end up stuffing my face with chips and dip.

No, I LOVE watching my Dolphins, but since they aren't even close lately..... and I have no serious attachment to either team other than I've vacationed in New Orleans... thats the only reason I'm not watching.

I live, literally 5 minutes from the stadium.... (Miami), so I'm hoping the stores will be empty, but I doubt it. I'm planning to make some vegan pizzas and watch Beyond the Valley of The Dolls for the gazillionth

I plan on doing several of the things on this list if I can! I'd like to hit one of the local art museums that morning, do a little shopping afterwards, then work on packing (we're moving soon) while I watch a movie. Perfect Sunday!

I'm watching the Super Bowl and cheering for the Saints, seeing as they're one of my favorite teams. (The Browns are "my team," but they're not going to be winning anything any time soon, so I have to pick a few other teams to cheer for.) I don't think I'll make the party I was planning on attending due to the snow, but I'm still excited for the game!

my favorite part of the super bowl is 7 layer dip.... so I'm making some and then renting Gone With The Wind. it's the same length of time and I would much rather watch Rhett Butler than Reggie Bush

Great ideas! I'm planning on curling up with a good book while my honey screams at the TV. I'm actually psyched the Super Bowl is finally here, because that means an end to football season!
