Super Bowl Sunday is kind of like Thanksgiving minus the family ties. Any Super Bowl host worthy enough to take on the challenge of a party must provide an array of indulgent dips, snacks, alcoholic (non-alcoholic for the driver) beverages, and a TV screen wide enough to capture the hearts and wallets of consumers watching commercials in-between the stop and start of a football game. This year marks the 52nd Super Bowl when the Philadelphia Eagles play the New England Patriots. Kick-off time is 3:30pm PST on NBC.
