What Super Bowl Sunday Really Means To The American People

It's not just a day for a football game.

What Super Bowl Sunday Really Means To The American People

Even though the Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year, the week leading up to the Super Bowl and even Super Bowl Sunday can mean much more than just football. So, here is a list of what Super Bowl Sunday really means to the American people.

1. Parties

Whether it is a family party or a friends party, you are bound to end up at a watch party to watch the big game.

2. Food

If you are at a party without some killer snacks, you better get up and leave because you are at quite possibly the worst Super Bowl party ever.

3. Commercials

Can I get a "Dilly Dilly!"?? Even if you aren't in it for the game itself, at least you have the commercials. Second to the game, the commercials are all the talk the day following the Super Bowl.

4. Getting drunk on a Sunday

Not normal behavior, even for a kid in college, but this single Sunday of the year tends to be one of the only ones where a majority of the people are drunk on a Sunday.

5. The halftime show

In between the game and all of the commercials, there is the halftime show. The show is usually one of the highly promoted parts of the game and it is very often hit or miss with the people watching at home. It is either very impressing or absolutely awful. (Lets hope JT can impress rather than disappoint.)

6. And, Believe it or not, football

Despite everything else going on during Super Bowl Sunday, there is still a football game to be watched. No matter what team you cheer for, there is always a favorite to win the big game .

On that note, GO PATS! #SAFTB

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
