The best place to watch the Super Bowl is at home

What’s your favorite place?

NFL: New York Jets at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Super Bowl is nearly here, and we’ll get to see which hateable team lifts the trophy this year: the New England Patriots, or the Philadelphia Eagles. What a nightmare.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t been to a Super Bowl in 15 years, of course, so rooting interests aren’t too relevant for us. And even this matchup won’t stop many Bucs fans from watching the Super Bowl every year. But one question pops up when you do: where, exactly, do you watch the big game? At a bar, in the stadium (lucky), at home, or somewhere else?

For me, watching it at home is easily the best choice. The TV experience is so good that you’re seeing more at home than you are inside the stadium, and you get the advantage of seeing all the commercials. It’s also a little more chill than a cramped bar where you may not get a great view of the screen.

Added bonus: homemade snacks and cheaper drinks, though the former will take you a little effort to get right. And the latter can, too, if you really want to put in the effort.

Where do you prefer watching the Super Bowl?
