Over at the site for which I actually get paid to write, I put together a post called “5 Keys to Make Your Small Group Party Super.”

In it, I give legitimate tips for making your Super Bowl event the best it can be. (As of now, it’s drawing considerably less traffic than my editor’s post “4 Easy Recipes for Your Super Bowl Party,” but I’m not bitter or anything.)

Knowing what to do is great, but some people need help in knowing what they shouldn’t do. They are the people who make it necessary to put labels on peanut butter jars that read “WARNING: May Contain Peanuts.”

So just in case you’ve got one of them in charge of your Super Bowl small group gathering at church, make sure they see this.

These are five surefire ways to absolutely ruin the party.

I don’t care if you are Russell Wilson’s mom and someone insulted him. Do not go “Bama Mom” on somebody at your small group party.

2. Watch the halftime show.

Best decision I ever made as a youth pastor? Turning off the TV at halftime during our student party the year of the infamous "wardrobe malfunction."

1. Ask which team Tebow plays for.

Yes, I know he loves Jesus, but so do other NFL players. So do other NFL quarterbacks. So do other NFL quarterbacks playing in the Super Bowl this year.
