Hello, this is Natasha Cooper, your Power English Coach. Welcome to Power English Minute! Our topic today is another American tradition. After the holidays are over, everyone needs something to get excited about- and that is the SUPER BOWL Sunday!
The Super Bowl is a championship game between the two best American Football teams of the season.Even th ose who don’t watch football regularly pick a team to root for. Every year the Super Bowl is in a different city.
To host the game in your city means a lot of extra money into the economy. Tickets are very expensive, and hotels, restaurants and coffee shops make sure there are extra people on the schedule to handle the crowds.
There are two really fun ways to watch the game. One is to throw a super bowl party. You can ask you friends,
“Would you like to come to a super bowl party at my house?”
Then, when they say yes, you can say,
“Great! Be there at two.” (or any time you want it to start),
“And could you bring some chips?” (or whatever you want).
Some people go all out and decorate with the colors of your favorite team, or both teams. Party stores sell football decorations for the occasion. Americans serve Pizza, Burgers, chips and dip. Some choose the food based on the region where the teams come from.
Some people prefer to watch the game at a sports bar. To make plans to go to a Sports Bar, ask your friends,
“Would you like to go to a Sports Bar for the big game?”
Then pick a few places to call and start shopping! Say,
“I would like to come with some friends to watch the Super Bowl.”
“Do I need to make reservations?”
“Is there a cover charge?”
“Is there a minimum order per table?”
“What are your menu prices?”
“What kinds of foods are there to choose from?”
“When do you suggest we arrive?”
Then set your plans and get ready for fun!
And if you could care less about football, Super Bowl Sunday is a great day to shop or go to a restaurant where there is no T.V. Movies have no line during game time. Many women take this Sunday to do a spa day with girlfriends, or go to museums. http://www.powerenglishcoach.com/american-holidays/super-bowl-sunday http://www.powerenglishcoach.com/american-holidays/super-bowl-sundayHowever you spend your Super Bowl Sunday, it is a great excuse to celebrate and have fun!
