    I usually have a party at mynhouse but when the pats are in it. No one can come over as I hate talking and like to analyze everything. What about you?

    My Fiancee and I will watch with another couple this year.

    That's as much as I can handle. If they try and take us to a SB party I'll say no. I can't get into a game when I'm at an unfamiliar persons house.

    I've watched just about every game alone/with my gf this year. Other years I was all about the having people over and crap but I live in San Diego and I'm trying to watch and enjoy the game so having people root against you just because is annoying. Oh, and I live with a Giants fans (very close friend) but I won't be watching with him. Like most Giants fans, he is obnoxious during games (the refs!! the refs!!!!).

    I like watching with other fans, but I'd MUCH rather watch alone than watch with someone who doesn't care, isn't paying attention, and is annoying me.

    If its the Pats playing - I watch it alone. Like you said - I hate analyzing games where Pats are playing. I need full concentration. I keep my wife and kids away for their own sake. At times I pause a crucial play and slomo it forward and honestly - it really works.

    This time - because of the matchup and what's at stake - I am thinking of not watching it at all and then er the results and watch it again - without any pressure if we win. Not sure if I will be able to do that but just to keep my sanity and health - I might have to not watch it.

    Already feeling so so stressed out. This is not good. Just imagining us winning it next Sunday!!!!! Is there anything called a Football-gasm because that's what I will have if they win. Go Pats!!!! Please please please beat the NY Giants. I cannot take another NYG victory at our expense and living in NJ. It will be better to move to Hell!

    I'll have 1 or 2 friends and my brother over, that's pretty much all I can handle. Had a few extra people show up for one game earlier this season and this one guy's girlfriend wouldn't shut the blanc up. Even too much game related talk bothers me because I really like to pay close attention.

    We're going to a big SB party at our friends' home at 3, then leaving the wife and kids there while I skidaddle back at 6pm to hibernate for the game in the Shmessy Cave.

    These are going to be the slowest 12 days ever.

    ....and I love it.

    Always with others. You win and lose as a team. How can you not want to watch it with other Pats fans. If I could go to the game I'd be watching it with many more people! ;)

    My wife and I are having our usual SB party although every year it's hit or miss with how many people show up. Mind you, with the Pats playing this year, I'd prefer a few less people. Then again, most of our friends know that I get a "little" wound up when the Pats play...

    I'm very very superstitious (or stupidstitious). The 3 SB's the Pats won, I was living in California with my ex-wife, and watched the games with her (she really didn't watch). Anyway, got divorced in 2006 and moved back to NY. So in my crazy warped superstitious mind, in 2008, I refused to watch it with my family or friends on the East Coast, since i didnt watch it with them when the Pats won. Obviously it didn't work (sorry guys, I blame myself). In fact, all 3 SB losses came when I was watching on the East Coast.

    So I've actually checked out a possible 3 day weekend in San Francisco for SB weekend. I know it's crazy, but my superstition and love for the Pats may make me go west to watch the game. If I stay home (by myself), and the Pats lose, I may never forgive myself.

    My wife told me we were invited to a SB party (kids can go even). I told her to have fun. I might watch with a neighbor who's a Pats fan, but it's a school night so that may not happen.

    73 inches of High def and I'll probably be about 5 feet from the screen.
