Football rivalry party
August 25, 2009
It's bound to happen at some point during the regular football season where there are two teams that play each other, and your friends are split down the middle in terms of loyalty.
A fun way to harness this energy is to throw a party, providing the fans with the use of one side of the room to cheer on their favorite team.
Party decorations should be evenly divided as well, with the number of team logos on the wall the same for each.
It may also be fun to take some duct tape and literally divide the room into two, with the gray tape strip separating both sides.
However, it's important to realize that the game will inevitably end and one side will be victorious. Allow the fans to celebrate, but be sure they don't get too rowdy with the other group who did not win.
If they do, consider using a whistle to calm things down, much like a referee. Maybe use yellow and red flags to signify "party fouls," which is a great way to bring the reality of the game into your party atmosphere.
Finally, as a fun post-game activity, organize a simple touch football game outside where everyone can enjoy the sport they love so much.
