People really need to grasp the fact that Peyton Manning is the greatest quarterback of all time. You can argue all you want, but I will let Manning speak for himself when he continuously breaks NFL records and leads his team to the Big Game. It’s exactly 20 days away, and I cannot wait to celebrate a Bronco’s championship win by throwing a HUGE party the day of!
I’ve always got to make sure I have the essentials – beer, food, big screen TV, and maybe a lot of napkins in case there’s a bloodbath. Let me share my party checklist to guarantee satisfied guests at your own Big Game party:
1. Bronco Decorations
Because why would I put anything else up? I’ve got to support my team and plaster their colors and mascot everywhere. I’ll be purchasing navy blue and orange colored banners, streamers, balloons, and anything else I can find that will contribute to this perfect setting.
Considering my decorations, there’ll be others who are hardcore fans of the opposite team, so things are bound to get rowdy. I’ve stocked up on plenty of napkins in case of spills, sticky fingers, and bloody noses.
3. Portable Air Conditioner
This is mostly for myself since I’ll be running around the house making sure everything is okay, but sharing is caring! It can also get really stuffy with a ton of people huddled around together for a few hours.
4. Big Screen TV
My eyesight is horrible, but my big screen HDTV comes in handy and I’m sure everyone else will appreciate it. We’ll be able to clearly watch the game and make fun of Colin Kaepernick commercials.
For easy cleanup to get rid of all those crumbled chips on the floor. A hand-held vacuum is more ideal during a party, but I plan on giving this responsibility to my roommate.
6. Toilet Paper
If my roommate and I go through a roll of toilet paper per day, I can’t imagine how many rolls we’ll go through with a dozen more people around.
7. Water Dispenser
It’s necessary to keep your guests hydrated with tons of alcohol and food around. A water dispenser is a great alternative to buying cases of bottled waters because there’s not going to be any room in the fridge.
I asked a few friends to bring some folding chairs just in case I don’t have enough seating for everyone. I’m also going to place blankets or rugs on the floor for those who don’t mind sitting on the ground.
It’s no question the drink of choice at this type of party is beer. A kegerator is perfect for guests who are glued to the TV because it’s easy access to quenching their thirst. Place it strategically near the TV.
10. BBQ Grill
This is definitely not a fancy-shmancy party. Throw some meat on the grill! Our diet will consist of chips and dip, burgers, hot dogs, pizza, wings, and sandwiches. You can burn the calories tomorrow.
11. Beverage cooler
Another perfect item for stocking up on non-alcoholic beverages. Keep soda, lemonade, or juice cold and fresh for enjoyment.
12. Make Room for Vegetarians
My roommate is also a vegetarian, so she constantly reminds me to make sure we have a veggie platter. I don’t want her to be the only one starving so I’m getting carrots, celery sticks, cucumbers, and some ranch dip.
13. Misting Fan
It’s torture cooking over a hot stove or grill. Place a Luma Comfort Misting Fan next to you to prevent looking like a hot mess.
14. Ice Maker
So important, yet so easily forgotten. Nothing ruins a party better than a warm drink. With an ice maker, you’ll have plenty of ice on hand and can even make more than needed.
15. Trash Bags
16. Cigar Cooler
After the Broncos win their third championship, I plan on additionally celebrating by smoking a cigar on my patio. I keep them in perfect condition for a glorious moment like this one will be with New Air’s Bottle Thermoelectric Cigar Cooler.
While half the nation is celebrating and the other half is crying over the Bronco’s win, I’ll be proud of all the hard work we put into this season. Thanks for helping me win my fantasy draft this year, Peyton. I owe you one.
