Here’s How To Celebrate The Super Bowl Like The Champ You Are

Your guide to the big game ... it is a national holiday after all.

If you're gearing up to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday, here are a few quick ideas to make sure you're celebrating in the best way possible.

1. Eat right, but keep it tasty.

While it's only natural to purchase a six-foot long sub and heaps of nachos for the big game, there are some healthier options out there, too.

Instead of loading up on carbs in sandwiches and chips, you could try grilled or baked chicken wings, turkey burgers, or chili.

You can also try some sliced veggies and fat-free dip, some tasty spinach dip, and zucchini fries as other options for sides.

2. Drinks, drinks, drinks.

With an estimated 1.5 million people expected to take off work after Super Bowl Sunday, we can only imagine why that is the case. So, if you're going to play hooky on Monday, at least make sure to enjoy getting smashed Sunday.

While beer is always a fantastic option, you can also get a little fancy. You can go with this tasty-looking Pink Plymouth Gin & Tonic, Bloody Marys, frozen margaritas, or you can also try out this mega-drink called a Lynchburg Lemonade, which is made to share with the whole squad.

You can also go for a team theme.

3. Know who you're rooting for.

Whether you're rooting for the Carolina Panthers ...

... or the Denver Broncos ...

... you should try and know at least the main players, so when someone asks, "Who just scored?" or "Who made that tackle?" you can at least take an educated guess.

So here's a quick breakdown of each team's biggest stars:

Carolina Panthers

- Cam Newton - Quarterback

- Greg Olsen - Tight End

- Jonathan Stewart - Running Back

4. Keep it classy when your team scores.

While you might feel the need to go run around the house and yell at the top of your lungs, keep it a little composed.

You might be ecstatic, but show some sportsmanship to other fans in the room whose team is biting the bullet in the big one.

A simple, "Yeahhh!" and high fives always do.

5. Get your gear.

It might be too late at this point to order online (although you might be able to find some good deals after the big game), you can always head over to stores like Dick's, which should still have some apparel in stock.

If you want to dress up a little, go for it. You can buy some face paint, sweat bands that match your team's color, or a hat as well.

6. Where to watch.

The Super Bowl will be airing on CBS at 6:30 p.m. EST.

If you don't have cable, The New York Times reports that CBS is making the game available through the CBS Sports or National Football League apps on Roku, Xbox One, Chromecast, Apple TV, and more.

You can also follow the Broncos on Twitter for other updates surrounding the game.
