The most important rule for a Super Bowl party is to always make sure there’s enough food and booze. But here are four other tips that aren’t so obvious . . .
- Tell people to get there early. If they all show up five minutes before the game, they won’t have time to relax and hang out. So tell them they can come an hour or two before kickoff if they want.
- Have more than one TV set up. If you’ve got a lot of people coming, you might even want two in your living room so everyone isn’t crowded around the same TV. And having one you can see from the kitchen is also nice.
- Play games and hand out prizes. It might sound lame, but it makes it more fun for the people who don’t actually care about football. You can print out Super Bowl bingo cards for free. Or just google “Super Bowl party games” if you need ideas.And if you want to gamble, the Super Bowl squares thing is always popular. That’s where you draw a grid . . . everyone gets numbers . . . and you win money based on the score at the end of each quarter. Download Superbowl Squares PDF here
- Have a football on hand. A lot of people still like the tradition of going outside at halftime and throwing it around.

Someone in England posted two photos on Twitter last month of an overweight guy dancing at a club. The caption said, “Spotted this specimen trying to dance . . . he stopped when he saw us laughing.”
It turns out the guy’s name is Sean, and he’s from London. In the first photo he’s dancing, and in the second he’s just staring at the floor looking sad. (We’re not sure about his age, but he looks like he’s in his early 30’s.)
But shaming him online totally backfired: Cassandra Fairbanks and Hope Leigh are part of a women’s group in L.A. that throws events, and the photos made them angry . . . so they decided to do something about it.
They offered to fly Sean to L.A. for a dance party with their 1,700 members. A company called Discover L.A. is going to cover his travel expenses . . . the L.A. Coliseum is going to host it for free . . . and Pharrell, Moby, and Andrew W.K. have all offered to perform.
Someone started a GoFundMe page too. And as of last night they’d raised over $35,000. Any money left over goes to an anti-bullying campaign.

(Here’s Alan in his mugshot . . . with his new haircut on display. It’s not THAT bad, right?)
A guy in Connecticut wanted a good haircut to hide the fact that he’s rapidly balding. But his reaction to that haircut has now turned the ENTIRE WORLD onto the fact that he’s rapidly balding.
47-year-old Alan Becker of Stamford, Connecticut went to get his haircut at a salon on Wednesday morning. And when his stylist was done, he HATED it.
Then he found out it cost $50 . . . and he lost it.
He started screaming at the staff, kicked a hole in the wall, and started throwing stuff around the salon. Then he stormed out . . . but came back in to demand that they FIX his haircut.
But they called the cops . . . and Alan was arrested for criminal mischief and breach of peace.
There are very few celebrities who are legitimate bad-asses on the level of “Machete” superstar DANNY TREJO.
When he was JUSTIN BIEBER’S age, he wasn’t throwing eggs at neighbors or peeing in mop buckets. He was DOING HARD TIME. So he’s not impressed with Justin’s shenanigans.
He says, quote, “Can you imagine going to jail and some hardened convicts ask you, ‘What are you here for, kid?’ and he goes ‘Egging my neighbor’s house.’ They would beat the [crap] out of him for wasting eggs.”
He adds, quote, “Don’t go [to prison], kid. I’m telling you, you’re not a tough guy. All of these rappers that say they got street cred that are telling you that you are tough, none of them have been to the pen either.”
Trejo also called Justin’s nighttime egg raid COWARDLY . . . quote, “If you’re going to do something, Holmes, just stand up. It don’t matter if you get your ass kicked or not. You stood up.
“But this kid is going to run into his house after doing something. He’s going to throw eggs at somebody at night.”
Then he added this CLASSIC . . . which I actually believe 100% . . . quote, “You have to be a little girl . . . actually girls are not bad. MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ could kick his ass.”
