Super Bowl Guests Are Mixed Bag

Ask any coach. You can’t just show up on game day and expect to be at your best. No, to perform at the highest level, you need to prepare. But there’s still time. You have a week to study the scouting report. And you might as well start now. Here are the 48 people you are apt to encounter at Inland Northwest Super Bowl parties next Sunday.

  1. The Shy Person: Not everyone thrives in social settings with strangers. You can help by being friendly.
  2. The Freelance Offensive Coordinator: He knows what plays should be called. You can tell him he’s wasted as an HVAC specialist.
  3. The Remote Control Czar: If this person wants to pause and go back a lot, a protest might be in order. You can say, “I have a hunch they will show a replay.”
  4. The Human Vacuum: This guy can scarf down snacks for six hours. Don’t stand between him and the hors d’oeuvres spread. More here.

Question: What type of Super Bowl guest are you?
