CHESAPEAKE, Va. - If you are a dedicated football fan, you know things can get heated while you are watching the game.

With Super Bowl 53 just around the corner, there are some football-watching etiquette reminders you might want to take a second to look over. Just remember it's only a game, and it doesn't matter if you are going to a friend's house or a local restaurant -- mind your manners.

  • Don't eat while you're in the buffet line. Sampling will slow everyone down.
  • Always clean up after yourself.
  • Refrain from using offensive language.
  • Never make personal jabs or comments at other guests.
  • Keep it PG, kids may be present. Just remember it may be a family event.

"Twenty-nine TVs set up in here, we will have the sound going. If you want to bring the kids, the arcade will be open. Full arcade area with prizes and everything else so the kids can play while you're watching the Super Bowl. It should be a great time," said general manager Brandon Hill.
