CDC Issues Super Bowl Party Guidelines: No Cheering, Limit the Beers

Videos by OutKick

If the host of your Super Bowl party is a CDC guideline-follower, either cancel plans or forget about cheering. No, really.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued newly-released guidelines that say Super Bowl party attendees should not cheer. “Avoid chanting or cheering. Stomp, clap, or bring hand-held noisemakers instead,” the CDC says. Got that? When Tom Brady throws his first touchdown, stomp your foot.

In addition to this rule, the CDC says you should limit your alcohol consumption, explaining that “consuming alcohol may make you less likely to follow COVID-19 safety measures alcohol consumption.”

One beer and a few claps. Fair enough?

Another interesting guideline says you should bring your own food. “Bring your own food, drinks, plates, cups, utensils, and condiment packets, if possible.” This does suck if your buddy promised you a nacho dip or has mastered his wing sauces. Remember: that one is just “if possible.”

Those who are truly looking to enjoy a Super Bowl party should have thought about all this months ago. By that, I mean getting on Gavin Newsom’s invite list. Newsom’s Super Bowl party could get wild.

At least you can use your hand-held noisemakers when the Bucs sack Patrick Mahomes. For that, thank the CDC.

  2. *I’ll be instructing my guests to snap their fingers or use jazz hands for celebrating.
    *We don’t need to worry about food, because we’re not serving any. If they need a drink, they can just grab some water with their own hands from the bathroom sink.
    *We’ll have TVs going in several different rooms, so that we can social distance, but masks are still required; face shields are optional.

    Sounds like a blast, right!?
