Conversation Starters for (non) Sports Fans

It’s Super Bowl week and the game will dominate a lot of sports, news and entertainment headlines. It’s one of the biggest events - sporting or otherwise - of the year. 

Because it’s an event, there’s no limit as to how many sports-adjacent topics you can introduce that relate to the game but don’t have anything to do with the actual matchup between the LA Rams and Cincinnati Bengals at Sofi Stadium in LA. Just take a look at this post from Instagram. 

To a hard-core sports fan it might be an odd take, but if you're someone who's more interested in music and entertainment that's one way to frame the half time show. 

Sports talk doesn't have to focus on the matchup, players, coaches or outcome. You can use sports to segue into dozens of other conversations and topics.  

The Super Bowl is a great opportunity to leverage the sports fandom of others. Football fans will already be talking about the game. It's top of mind. Every football fan knows there are unique elements to the game worth talking about from the prop bets to the commercials. Use that to your advantage and try using one of these sports-adjacent conversation starters this week. 

  • Have you been to LA? Cincinnati? 
  • Which of the halftime performers is your favorite?
  • What's your favorite game-day food?
  • Will you be hosting/attending a Super Bowl party?
  • Do you take bathroom breaks during the commercials or the game?
  • Based strictly on the mascots, who would win between a Ram or a Bengal tiger?
  • What's the craziest prop bet you've seen for the game?

Join the sports conversations this week and take advantage of a sporting event that revolves as much around the food, entertainment, commercials and location as the game itself.
