Super Bowl Sunday is an age-old, American tradition in which people gather to watch a football game that some have been patiently awaiting all season. People watch for a myriad of reasons: the commercials, the halftime show, or, sometimes, the game itself. We asked students (and faculty) about what they do for the Super Bowl.

“We don’t really have any traditions [for the Super Bowl.] I watch mostly for the halftime show, and I feel like the commercials aren’t good anymore,” junior Emma Lonnberg said.

“I don’t watch the Super Bowl, because I don’t like football. I also don’t support people ramming into one another. I go to Super Bowl parties solely for the food,” junior Meghan May said.

“Eating an unhealthy amount of food, that’s the go to. I watch mainly for the game and eat wings and dip. [I think the] Patriots [will win,] but I’m hoping for the Eagles,” Coach Eli Cook said.
