    .....with a Steelers fan and 2 ADDITIONAL kids who are not mine.

    Sigh....

    Someday this woman will get it.

    The only thing I want to hear between 430 and 8pm tomorrow is the tv, my little boy and maybe her.

    Yeah I know they don't get it. I also hate it when, after not showing any interest during the regular season, they suddenly want to learn all the rules and ask you about what happened after each play during the playoffs/superbowl.

    I would prefer renting an isolation chamber for 3 Hours or so which is equipped with a nice large leather recliner,a 60" LCD Sony Bravia,a halftime buffet made just for one and a gun to scare and keep those that try to invade and interfere with the game infactuation away from me.

    Is that asking too much? and if not where can I find something like this? :confused:

    I don't mind if she asks me questions but if she thinks I'm gonna sit here with the enemy she is nuts. I have friends at work who are Steelers fans, I didn't invite them over for the game either.

    My friend is having a big superbowl party this year, I already told him I won't be there if the Pats make it. My perfect game watching setting would be a giant screen and a dark sound proof underground cave.

    Regular season is one thing but come playoff time I can't deal with morons or opposing fans. Thank God no one was around after SB 42 because I'd probably be in prison now lol.

    IF you watch CSI there are ways to depose of the bodies and still make the game without being implicated, just saying:)

    Never making this mistake again.
    Watched with a large group.
    Half Pats fans half Giants fans.
    After the game was over they were celebrating and hollering.
    We said nothing - it was just deafening silence and you could tell violence and anger levels were getting high. They just left. No goodbyes or anything else. I learned my lesson that day the hard way.

    Wow that sucks man, I feel your pain. That is the only thing that could have made that night even worse for me.

    Yup its either fellow Pats fans or no one at all.

    I watched the Pats-steelers regular season game at my friend's place (steeler fan). He had a 70" screen. It was sweet. His uncle used to play for the steelers and his parents were at the game. At half-time, he called them to tell them to leave and banned me from his house whenever the pats play the steelers. LOL!!!!!!

    I've got pretty much all but one. Anyone want to make a nice buffet for a 6'4" 215lb guy? :D

    I've never watched the SB with fans of the opposing team, and I don't think I ever will. I DID host the SB36 party, but it was in Canada, and half the people there barely knew anything about the NFL. The rest were Pats fans or Pats sympathizers though, since they're the ones on TV all the time in New Brunswick. Since then, I watched SB38 with two relocated buddies from Mass (I was in Virginia).

    I smartly watched that game with just me and my wife.

    i know of such a place... my parents house! (i am twenty, in college, but watch the playoffs/superbowl on the weekends here). i swear, my dad hates football (hes a big basketball fan) and my mom is clueless about sports. All of my friends are fans of opposing teams, so i avoid watching big games with them. Just me, lots of grub, and a huge TV screen
    :D

    #1 - The first rule of the Patriots game is, you do not talk about the Patriots game.


    #2 - The second rule of the Patriots game is, you DO NOT talk about the Patriots.


    #3 - If someone says why do they jump on the pile when the player is down their viewing the game is over.


    #4 - One fan (me) to the remote for a Patriots game ... switching channels is not allowed.


    #5 - One Patriots game at a time.


    #6 - No talking, no stupid questions.


    #7 - Isolation will go on as long as necessary.


    #8 - If this is your first time watching the Patriots, you must duct tape your mouth.

    If the game resembles Jets v Pats week 2 then I won't be listening for 3 hours (not even my wife and son). If it resembles Jets V Pats week 13 then I'll be all ears after only 60 mins. 1:30 - 4:30 tomorrow is sacred time....

    Having lived in NYC since I was 18, I could never really get too particular about where or with whom I watched Patriots games. The games were usually not on local TV and none of the landlords at my first few places would sign the release to let me get DirecTV, so I was stuck going to sports bars packed with Giants and Jets fans to watch the Pats games.

    Most of the places I lived, it wasn't so bad. I had a couple fellow ex-pat M******* buddies who I'd meet at the bar, and got to be game-day friends with a small crew of other Pats fan regulars. During the '01 season, though, I was stuck in Yonkers, and would have to bike a couple miles to be the lone scrawny, shaggy-haired college kid at a nasty-ass sports bar next to the race track to be sprayed with the tobacco-infused spittle of some truly degenerate Jets fans when they'd bray at me whenever the Pats got scored on. I didn't miss a single game that season, though, and when the Pats went to the Super Bowl, I remember feeling like it was a karmic reward for my dedication. Also, I got really good at bicycling under the influence.

    So these days, as long as I've got a place to sit and the games on an HDTV with the sound turned up, I'm pretty happy.

    I assume there are exemptions for such things as post-pick-6 "HAHAHAHA Stupid ****ing Jets!" yells? :p

    In the middle of the Ravens-Steelers yesterday my wife decided to change the batteries in all of the smoke alarms.
    As I sat here watching game she kept yelling to me to get upstairs because she couldn't unplug the detectors.
    Thing is....she is a fan too but man, she was sitting watching game and cheering yet she decides to do this?
    She worries me more about the game today than Jersey Jets do.
