And most of it pretty bad.

However, because it's the Steelers, it is usually bearable.  If it was the Pastries, Jets, or Ravens, I might go an entire week without watching ESPN.

We're having about a dozen people over and I need food ideas.  Since I'm the cook, I want food that doesn't need me to do anything while the game is on.  Preferably a mix of your basic gameday menu and maybe some more upscale. 

I don't mind having chafing dishes, but I think they do a half-assed job of keeping stuff at a good temp.  So crab cakes or grilled shrimp are out -- too difficult to keep warm, not cooking during the game.  Ditto burger sliders.  My world famous chili is possible, keep it warm in a crock pot.  Might do something like bacon-wrapped dates with blue cheese, or orzo salad.  We'll have a couple of Italian hoagies sliced down, and I could hit the stores for other pre-mades. 

Frankly, I get tired of the same old same old (wings, chips).

Suggestions?

I'm a big fan of the winter lamb stew.

Take a couple of shanks (approx. 1 per person) and braise them in a large pot with olive oil and garlic.  When the outsides of the shanks are seared, cover them in water and simmer for about an hour.  Add chunks of turnips, parsnips, potatoes and garden carrots and bring to a boil.  When the veggies are soft, it's time to eat.  My palate tends to the salty/savory side so I'll maybe add a dash of fish sauce or worcestershire sauce, but you can season to taste.

Prep time is all during pregame so you have a pot of lamb stew ready to go whenever you're hungry.

Who can eat during a Steelers playoff game?

I'd be more concerned with having a "host only" designated shitter.

Sounds pretty good, Pens.  I love lamb, not sure it runs to all tastes though.

But something to think about, especially in place of the chili.

Just make sure you have your nitroglycerine tablets next to the mozarella sticks!

Fortunately The Bus won't be carrying on the goal-line this time...but a Mendy spin move could be equally dangerous!

The bro-in-law is talking about making Primanti's-style sandwiches while drinking Beam and Ginger.  I fully expect someone to get fries and cole slaw bewteen the wrong kind of buns.  Luckily his pregnant wife will be here to play DDriver.

I actually thought about doing some knock-off Primanti's style sandwiches, but too messy...

Beam and ginger?  WTF?  My plan is bourbon/Scotch rocks: more bang, less pissin'.  I don't mind Beam, but I wouldn't puss it up with ginger ale.

Remember who we're talkin' about here.  This is the same guy who played golf on Friday and Saturday, while I was at work/in class.  He then wants me to come over and help him paint his house during my four-hour break between Sunday shifts. 

Love the guy, but man...he continues to test my limited spiritual virtue of patience.

If you are interested, I can get the recipe.

Suggestions? 

Set up a make-your-own buffet for nachos or pizza or fajitas or something like that, plus finger food. Guests make their own meal how they want it, and you're free to occupy the couch.

Pepperoni pizza dip:
You'll have to figure your own quantities, cause I just wing it.

Pepperoni, diced
green onion, diced
green pepper, diced (I'll sometimes use poblano, or green chiles)
pizza sauce
mozzarella

bake at 350 for 30 minutes or so.

Way yum, good at room temp, always a crowd pleaser.

Can you please bring this to Paul's?  I'm like Pavlov's dog over here....

Lamb shoulder chops would also work great here if you can't find shanks. Added bonus, they're a cheap cut.
