How are you watching the game? With friends? A large watch party somewhere? By yourself or 1 or 2 others?

environment. There are strict rules for watching games at my house, and this is the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. I have a few friends who know and abide by the rules, but it's a work night, so it will just be us three.

Just my dad and brother.

This is too big of a game and my emotions will be too high to have the people hanging around who are just pretending to care.

My oldest son, his bride and their best friend are driving down after work (~2 hr drive) just to watch with my bride (disabled or we'd be in CA) and me. They each attend 4-5 games with me/yr since my bride can't travel anymore.

Large pot of chili is simmering, a cake of homemade cornbread will be baked just before kickoff. We will yell like crazy at our tv and hug each other profusely after our Tigers lay claim to our THIRD NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!

JACKED IN NORTH CAROLINA!!! GO TIGERS - BEAT bama!!!!!!!

Sounds somewhat like my house. The wife and I will have chili and cornbread and watch the game with the Tiger network, as opposed to ESpin. Win or lose, we will proudly fly our paw flags tomorrow, especially in Cootville!

Go Tigers ??!!

has participated in my CU football addiction for over 40 years since we were dating. In the time we've been to Bama, Auburn, Ga, UNC, Md, GT, Tx A&M, VT. Her birthday gift to me in 78 was tix to Md where we won the ACC Championship (also one of the best in persona games I've ever been to). They were bought through MD cause CU's allotment was long gone by the time we decided we could go.

I can really watch best at home alone with the big TV, maybe texting with friends, drinking and eating what I want. But the draw of having others around is appealing and I may head out to the club later. Beautiful day in Georgia btw.


I will be watching at my house on the big screen

Just my daughter and me. She will watch in her bedroom and I'll watch in my bedroom. When we score a TD we will meet in the great room and high-five and then back to our rooms. Will partake of some white Zinfindel throughout the evening and find something to snack on including some 3 year old extra sharp cheddar.

Me, wife and two daughters, all rabid Tigers. We made Dallas but couldn't pull off CA so we will watch it where we watched in 2017 on the big TV upstairs after some sort of chicken dish for dinner, just seems appropriate. I can't watch these type games in groups, especially of people who don't really care. Several of our group are in CA so we'll be texting too. Go Tigers!!!

In my Den kicked back in my La-z-boy in front of my 60 inch hanging from the wall, with all doors locked and phones turn off. And not wanting to hear the breathing from anyone with the only exception being my Rott laying in front of me wearing his orange Tiger Paw collar!!! For me, this is the perfect way to watch my Clemson Tigers trying to win a National Championship game.

I have to mention the most important reason that I will have my cell phone turned off. It is bc my oldest brother would call me every time Clemson scored a TD for the past 5 or 6 years when he become a Clemson fan after being a coot fan all of his life, and after years of trying to turn him into a Tiger, he finally saw the light about 6 years ago. His last Clemson game was the Louisville game that we watched together, and he passed away at the age of 75, and as winner 3 days after on November 6th. He will be sorely missed, and my cell will never be on again during a Clemson FB game, never again bc the call won't be from who I want it to be from. For me and my brother Ellis Lane, Go Tigers, and beat Bama!!!

Our cat, LG, will likely be watching a mere moment, but she wisely will retire to her bed, put a paw over her ear and attempt to sleep.

She is a tiger at heart!

The 3 members of my household will all be watching on separate TVs. That works for us. Nobody wants to watch the game the way I do, which is to record the game, then start watching about 30 minutes after kickoff. That’s so I can FF through the commercials. And everybody finds it obnoxious that I like to back up and watch a play a couple times so I understand what happened. Usually this puts me so far behind I can skip all commercials and zip right through half time, too.

That is exactly what I do with the exception of the games. But every Sunday, I will go through the cable guide and hit record on everything I want to watch for the week so that I can ZIP through every commercial through out the entire week. If it's not the paid channels, the commercials on regular TV are 4 to 5 minutes long, and I got sick of that BS. But now, a commercial don't make it more than a second or 2 and I'm speeding through then on FF#4!!!

Got The Bachelor set to record.

I wouldn’t wish anything bad for you, but I hope the dog gets stuffed and you are staggering by the end of the game.

Well the Vet told me that about 4 ounces of beer is ok for your dog. And I will give it to my big boy 2-3 times a week. Dogs have bad kidneys on average, and the 4 Oz's of beer helps to detox them. He likes it better after it gets flat, so I will open one and let it set, give him the 4 Oz's put the top back on, and give it to him through out the week.

First playoff game I have missed. I will be watching at home with my wife and 17 year old son. My daughter will probably wonder in and out. My wife will complain that the TV is too loud. I will text a few buddies during timeouts and halftime.
