Watch Sunday, April 13
Miley, Charlie and more!
January 31st, 2014
It’s the Super Bowl this weekend, and while you would normally treat February 2 as any other Sunday, your loved one is forcing you to be aware of the biggest day in football. Let’s start by calling it any ‘given’ Sunday. Now you’re getting the lingo!
This weekend marks the one time in the whole year that your partner actually shows up in the kitchen to check on whether you have all the fixings for snacks that will ensure you are the longest living member of your union. Who knew there was such a thing as 15 layer nacho dip? Who knew your boyfriend/girlfriend could find the kitchen? The Super Bowl is all about learning hidden talents your partner possesses, talents that you probably would have preferred to remain undiscovered.
Still, the truth is now out. Your loved one knows how to apply face paint, how to find the grocery store, and how to pick up the phone and invite their friends over. But just because you hate football doesn’t mean this Sunday has to feel like you just lost your quarterback in the third quarter and are down by five…i.e. bad, this Sunday doesn’t have to feel bad. Here’s a list of things you could do while your loved one watches the Super Bowl.
1. Watch the half-time show
Sure, you may decide who you’re cheering for based on who will end this never-ending game sooner, but there is a silver lining to being forced to watch the Super Bowl and it’s the half time show. Bruno Mars is performing and you love him, because frankly, everyone loves Bruno Mars.
2. The Commercials
You’re trying to be a supportive partner and endure what feels like 15 hours of grown men starting and stopping plays, but all you want to do is see the commercials and everyone is talking through them. Fear not! We’ve already rounded up the best Super Bowl commercials for you to see ahead of time. Now you can predict how each commercial will end and convince the room of football fans that you have psychic abilities. This will make you the most popular person in the room. Please use your power for good and not evil.
3. Relive Your Own Super Bowl
Sure, your partner may love watching a sport that bores you to tears, but you have your own Super Bowl. It’s called The Grammys and it was last weekend and it was AWESOME. Relive your ideal way to spend a Sunday night with our full coverage of the awards show.
4. Win Your Own Super Bowl
I’m sure winning a Super Bowl is pretty sweet, but that’s not in the cards for you. How about winning your own Super Bowl, aka tickets to see Down With Webster (enter here) or Hedley (enter here) on tour. Now we’re talking!
5. Give this a Little Spin
Choreograph your own touchdown dance while listening to Little Mix’s album Salute in our First Spins section.

9. Cast a Vote
Sure, you may have lost Sunday’s vote to do anything other than the Super Bowl, but that doesn’t mean your voice shouldn’t be heard! Check out M3′s countdown and vote for who you think should have the number one video in the country.
10. If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em
If you must participate in Sunday’s festivities, the least we can do is give you a cheat sheet to make it bearable. Go forth and eat fried foods.
