I've watched a lot of sports in my lifetime. I've also watched them in a lot of different places with a lot of different people. That being said, there are plenty of respectable, everyday people who act like complete fools when it comes to sports, especially when their hometown team is involved. That being said, here are a few types of people you probably want to try and avoid this Super Bowl Sunday.

1. The person who gets way too drunk 

There's nothing wrong with having a few drinks during the game. Beer and sports have become nearly inseparable in the American psyche. However, there is a big difference between getting a good buzz and being absolutely obliterated. As Bill Simmons always says, "No one wants to be that guy who gets so drunk and ruins it for everyone." If you wake up the next morning and can't remember who won the game, maybe you had a bit too much to drink.

2. The person who always wants to gamble

As someone who no longer has an NFL team in their hometown (thanks Stan), I can understand the desire to add a little more action to the game. That's a big pull for fantasy football. You suddenly find yourself interested in NFL games, teams and players that you would have never usually cared about just because they might determine the fate of your team that week. And then when the fantasy football season ends after Week 16 there's really only the playoffs left to bet on. It's nice to be able to bet online or play some daily/weekly fantasy sports but there's nothing like betting with friends. That being said, if you're trying to bet me something every 10 minutes on something like "I'll bet you $10 he run for 15 yards" I'm going to get quickly annoyed.

3. The person who asks too many questions

The Super Bowl is by and large the most popular sporting event in America. So much so that even the commercials and halftime show have created their own subset of viewers. Chances are, there will be someone at your watch party or group hitting the bars that doesn't watch football very often. So the onus is on this type of person to know when to ask questions responsibly. It's difficult to pay attention to the game while at the same time explaining it's minutia. Football is not a terribly complicated sport and color commentary nowadays has become much more advanced in recent years. Not to say that no one can ask any questions, but as before be considerate of those around you.

4. The person who yells after every play

One of the best parts about sports is how passionate fans get about their teams. And emotions are never higher when a championship is on the line. That being said, there's always someone who goes just a bit too far. The person who gets way too drunk and the person who yells after every play are often the same. These kinds of people are not only disruptive to the people in your group but your immediate surroundings as well. I understand getting excited about big plays but if you stand up and yell after a five-yard pass we're going to have a problem.

5. The person who's on their phone the whole game

Talk about a stereotypical millennial move. Especially with the Super Bowl coming up, space is usually at a premium especially if you're watching at a restaurant or bar. So why for the love of all that is good would you waste a spot if you're not going to watch the game? The same goes for spots if you're going to be at a house or apartment. Obviously couch space is more valuable than island space , so if you're not going to pay attention to the game you might as well try and sit somewhere as far away from the TV as possible.

6. The person who would have gone pro if it wasn't for their bum knee

These kinds of people are former athletes are usually the most critical of the athletes despite being some of the most conditioned people in the world and the top one percent of the one percent in their profession. You'll hear some classic lines like "I would have made that catch," "why did he run the ball that way" and the classic "I could have played longer if it wasn't for my injury." These people really never developed past their high school athletic career which can make for some limited and frankly annoying conversation.

Stand-Up Comedy Can Make The Most Stressful Days Way Easier

If you're stressed to the max, I highly recommend giving stand-up comedy specials a try!

Have you ever been laying in bed after a long and stressful day, scrolling through Netflix, trying to find something to watch? You can't make a decision on something, so you decide to try something new. Now, this could be a big mistake or you could find something amazing. This happened to me a few weeks ago and somehow I ended up in the stand-up comedy section. I have seen a couple of clips of Gabriel Iglesias, or "Fluffy," on YouTube in the past, but I've never watched a stand-up comedy special on Netflix before. It never was appealing to me and I don't know many people that watch stand-up.

After deciding to watch Gabriel Iglesias' new Netflix special, I was intrigued. Then, my friend told me that I had to watch Bert Kreischer's new Netflix special. He promised that I would find it funny and that he was really good. He added that Bert does all of his performances shirtless and it makes it that much funnier. So, I watched it and I've been hooked to stand-up ever since. Now, I've become a fan of the many classic stand-up comedians that many people know and love like Kevin Hart, Ellen Degeneres, and Iliza Shlesinger as well. It quickly became something I couldn't get enough of, especially after a stressful day. I figured out that even after the most trying day and even when I was extremely stressed or drowning in homework, I forgot about all of that. I got an hour to myself to just take a breath, have a good laugh, and forget about all of my problems.

A lot of times, I use the hour to eat some food while I watch the special or just lay in bed for a little while and enjoy forgetting about all of the things I could be doing. I've also learned some things. Like the fact that Ellen got her start by doing stand-up, or that Fluffy is coming to Columbus this summer to do a show. I also learned that even though these people are celebrities and have thousands of followers and fans, they're very relatable and more like me than I realized. We sometimes forget that they are people too.

I highly recommend taking an hour out of your day to see if stand-up comedy could be a stress reliever for you. This is definitely a topic that many people don't think of when it comes to relieving stress or getting into a better mood. I'm glad I stumbled across this new found stress reliever to be able to try something different and new and to enjoy a good laugh while doing so. If you're down in the dumps or having a hard day, try watching stand-up. I promise it'll make your day better.
