So we all know there are thousands of bets out there you can place on SuperBowl Sunday, from which QB will throw the first touchdown, to how long Kelly Clarkson's national anthem will last. Since we here at STOB are financially unable to place bets exceeding 2 dollars, we figured we would stick to betting and wagering on the game using one of our favorite items.... Beer....
Now before I start with the rules, It is acceptable to drink a beverage of your choice other than beer. A mixed drink would count, a straight shot would count if you are feeling adventurous, and yes, you can use soda or a non alcoholic beverage, but really, what's the fun in that.
On to the Game:
Let's start with the pregame. NBC will be covering the SuperBowl pregame show so:
-Everytime Bob Costas mentions Tim Tebow or Brett Favre's name, take a drink.
-Everytime NBC previews the Summer Olympics in London, take a drink.
-Everytime you see a celebrity in a football jersey or making a fool of themselves, take a drink.
-Everytime NBC shows Madonna, take a drink.
-Everytime someone at your party says Madonna looks gross, take a drink.
-Everytime NBC shows/talks about Rob Gronkowski's ankle, take a drink.
-Everytime Peyton Manning is talked about even though he isn't playing in the game, take a drink.

-Everytime the broadcast crew talks about a specific play and how it could have tweaked Rob Gronkowski's ankle, take a drink.
-Everytime a comment is made by the NBC crew describing a football play but out of context sounds extremely sexually profane (ex. Look at how he just found that hole and then just pounded it up in there.) take 2 drinks.
-Anytime that Patriots owner Robert Kraft's deceased wife is brought up, have a respectful drink.
-Every ad for NBC's Smash, take a sip...there will be a lot of them.
-Every ad for NBC's The Voice, take a sip....there maybe just as many.
-During an ad for NBC's The Voice, if anyone at the party says something close to, "Hey guys..derrr...did you guys see the video of Christina Aguilera with that stuff running down her leg from dat funeral thing?", tell that guy to drink 5.
-At your party, for every bag of chips (chex mix counts) at your snack table, take a drink.
-If Victor Cruz scores and does his salsa dance, chug your drink for the entirety of the dance.
-If Chad OchoCinco makes a positive play at all in the game, take a drink.
-Everytime NBC shows a replay of David Tyree's catch against his helmet over again, take a drink.
-If the MVP of the game is a QB, take a drink.
-If the MVP of the game is anyone except a QB, take 2 drinks.
At this point you may be passed out (we do not condone over drinking) but if you are not, finish your beer and call it a night with a safe way home, that doesn't include anyone that played this game driving.
