3. A great television or two. Something thin, flat and mounted to the wall. It should definitely be (ultra) high definition and with a terrific sound system. You’ll want to see every blade of grass and hear every tackle. Don’t mount the television too high as we don’t want a pain in our necks from watching. And don’t make it too small. A good, though not-cast-in-stone rule is to use half the maximum viewing distance as the screen size (diagonally). So if the viewing distance is, say, 8’, a screen size of 48” would work. (Of course, being a guy I tend to err on the larger size, so I’d go with a 56” set.) 4. Comfortable seating. Not the designer “oh-my-this-chintz-fabric-is-to-die-for” kind of seating, but the kind that’s durable, easily cleaned of spilt beer and nachos. Something that you won’t freak out if it gets damaged when a guest re-enacts that devastating, game-altering fumble. Materials like canvas that can be cleaned or leather that can be wiped down. And that old standby from the '70s, naugahyde (made from real naugas of course).
