Super Bowl Church Parties Are Now Legal

For the past two Super Bowls, churches cannot host Super Bowl parties that show the game on a screen larger than 55 inches. Unfortunately, some churches found out the hard way.

But times have changed. As of Tuesday this week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated the NFL would not object to “live showings – regardless of screen size – of the Super Bowl.”

So start planning 2009’s Super Bowl church party where you will watch the Cincinnati Bengals make their long-awaited comeback (wishful thinking).

    I think it’s actually kind of funny. For the first time in America, the church went underground and had secret meetings to have the event in their church. That is, for those churches that did that sort of thing.

    SB2009 is tentatively scheduled for February 1, 2009. I’ve already advised our Fellowship group to start plannin’ a party! Thanks for the tip!

    Cincinnati folk need to stick together.

    We’re excited about all of our teams this year. First the Reds, then the Bengals: championships for each of them.

    Who Dey!
