10 Things Marylanders Can Do Instead Of Watching The Super Bowl

Route One Apparel Staff

Super Bowl XLVII seems like just yesterday. Ravens fans were causing havoc in the streets. Rushing to their local sporting goods store to purchase tee shirts and bask in the glory of their winning team, the Baltimore Ravens.
 
A year has past, and for the first time in five years the Baltimore Ravens did not even make it to the playoffs. I mean what is a Ravens (or Redskins) fan to do on Super Bowl Sunday this year? Root for the Denver Broncos or the Seattle Seahawks? No way. Here are ten other options…
 
1. Watch the 8th annual Puppy Bowl. They tried getting Bruno Mars to perform at halftime, but he was already booked.

2. Check out one of these local shows. Both happen to be metal bands with an interesting take on the music scene.
 
In This Moment is playing at The Fillmore.

Dark Tranquility is playing at Soundstage.

3. Host a family and friends game night. Testudo’s game of choice: Terpopoly!

4. Head over to the Timonium Fairgrounds. On Sunday, they are featuring the Great Model Train Show presented by Ellicott City Scale Model Railroad Association and Recticon Baltimore Reptile & Exotic Animal Show presented by Herpetorama Inc.

5. We all have that one (or more) household project we are “still working on.” Grab your toolkit…today is the day to finish it.

6. Have dinner at a restaurant you have always wanted to go to. Birroteca is at the top of my list featuring craft beer and artisan pizza.

7. The average football game takes three hours. In that time you could watch all of Beyoncé’s music videos from her newly released self-titled album…twice (yes, she made one for every single song).

8. Go to the movies (Personal choice: That Awkward Moment, featuring Zac Efron, finally hit box offices Friday).
Via Fandango
 
9. Take a day trip to Washington, DC. The Washington Capitals host the Red Wings Sunday at 12:30 PM.
Via Ticketmaster

10. It’s a proven fact that Super Bowl commercials are not what they used to be. Save your TV time for the up-and-coming Winter Olympics. Companies like Century 21, Subway and Best Buy skipped the Super Bowl this year (just like any Ravens fan should do) and focused their money on the Winter Olympics.

And if you must watch the Super Bowl, which we all will end up tuning in at some point, head to your local bar and enjoy the company of a fellow bitter Raven’s fans not watching their team play in Super Bowl XLVIII.
