[Weekend off the Wagon in your inbox every Friday – Sign up now!]
The legends foretell that the Denver Broncos would make it to the Super Bowl once again, this time to face off against the Seattle Seahawks. Remember to wear your lucky jerseys (that you haven’t washed all season) and practice all of your game day rituals for Sunday… but don’t forget about the rest of the weekend, too!
If football isn’t really your thing (it’s okay, we forgive you), there’s still something for you to enjoy without having to fear the crowds this weekend. We like to think there are two kinds of people out there; the people who watch the Super Bowl for the game, and those who watch for the commercials.
So, which one are you?
