View Full Version : How do you put together a Playoff Watch Party? Never done it before...

We've got about a dozen folks in my church that are big Texans fans. Just had one of them hit me up on Facebook and ask if we were gonna have a watch party at our house after church next Sunday. I got picked because I've got the biggest and best TV, AND I'm about 25 steps out the backdoor of the church--so less likely to miss too much of the game!

I've never done one before, and since we won't be having any "adult beverages," I'd like to know what goes into putting one of these things together.

I'd really like for it to be a nice experience for everyone!

Thoughts and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You can be creative and use the winner for a door prize or something . We usually just sell 100 squares for a buck each and if it's 7 to 7 after the first quarter the one with 7 and 7 wins 25 bucks .... repeat each quarter . It makes it funny because there's always that person who needs a field goal and then a fumble occurs . Unless you don't want to charge money then the winner gets your hat , pie , cake , or whatever someone gives .

Home team goes on top, visitors down the side.
Also, you do not use set numbers until the board is full, then you draw numbers randomly from a hat or deck of cards 0-9 to keep anyone from trying to grab the best numbers,i.e. 7-7, 7-3, etc.
When it is para-mutual like this, it's not so much gambling as it is more like Bingo.

Have alcohol and pretty women in their 20s with big, plastic boobs...Bill and I will show up. Have a TV and food and simply tell everyone else about it and they'll show too.

I'm not sure if you noticed the pic of Bill, my son & I in the other thread (thanks to the blue crew) but apparently the bullpen photographer photoshopped out the latex woman that Bill was walking around with.

Okay...see this is where things get confusing. Are you talking about an ACTUAL inflatable woman or some chick whose had so much cosmetic surgery that she looked like a big Barbie doll. With Bill it's a pretty good either way bet.
