What are the requirements for a perfect Super Bowl Sunday?

I would start with a couch, obviously, and maybe even a coffee table to put your feet on. While you’re at it, you will need snacks for that coffee table, lots of them. Chances are you won’t be moving for a few hours, especially if you watch the halftime show.

The big game (or as I call it, the End of Football Celebration) is not complete without these things. I’d argue the performance break is a large part of what draws thousands to watch it every year.

(And this year, the music industry is making a larger-than-life impact on the football community, if you know what I mean.)

Super Bowl LVIII will feature a performance by Usher, and everyone who went through adolescence or early adulthood in the 2010s is geeked out over this. Nothing gets the young crowd on their feet like songs “Yeah!” or “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love.”

If you’re not familiar with Usher, you should probably do your research so as to truly experience the Super Bowl for what it is. Remember, football and music can exist in harmony! (Pun intended.)

While you wait to dive into buffalo chicken dip and place $20 on a score square on Sunday, there are other events going on that can tide you over. See the following.
