It’s almost time for Super Bowl Sunday

Published 7:00 am Thursday, February 2, 2017

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! That’s right football fans, Super Bowl Sunday is upon us.

If the fact that the arch rivals to our beloved New Orleans Saints will be one of the two teams on the roster has not dissuaded you from watching the big game, then you will be among millions of other Americans planning to tune in.

Who knows, maybe cheering the Patriots to victory over the Falcons will be the driving force behind Saints fans tuning in.

No matter the reason for watching the game, if you plan on hosting a party, be sure to express the importance of your guests not drinking and driving.

If you are too distraught to watch the game without having adult beverages, consider watching it from the comfort of your own home, or seeking the assistance of a designated driver when attending a party.

Alternately, if you didn’t plan on drinking at first, but the Falcons winning this year’s title prompts a last minute urge to imbibe, ask a friend for a ride home.

And if that option is not available, we are sure your host will provide you with a comfortable place to sleep.

And, by keeping lots of food and non-alcoholic beverages available, you can help your guests get home safe and sound.

Here’s hoping that everyone has a safe and sober Super Bowl Sunday.
