    At 6:30 p.m. EST, a countless number of people will be gathering in bars and around television sets to eat, drink, and cheer as they watch Super Bowl XLIX. Some people have been following these teams since the season started, and some still can't name the two teams that made it to the championships. Some are planning to watch Katy Perry perform at the halftime show while others are just using tonight as an excuse to hang with friends. 

    Sports fan or not, you're going to feel the pressure to participate. And, if you know jack squat about America's modern-day gladiator games, well, chances are the 4+ hours of touchdown passes and blown third-down conversions are going to drag. But, not if you heed the emotions in the following GIFs! The first step is to pick a team. Are you rooting for the Seattle Seahawks or the New England Patriots? It doesn't matter why you pick a team, just pick one, stick with it, and master these 10 reactions.
