5. If you have another TV, set up one of your old Olympic video games for people to play

To play between commercials! My personal favorite was Capcom's Gold Medal Challenge released for Nintendo in 1992 — but I hear there are many more, better games that have been released since.

10. Make a mixtape


For before or after the events you're there to watch. It should probably include at least a few of the following:

• "We Are The Champions" by Queen

• "World's Greatest" by R. Kelly

• "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns N Roses

• "London Bridge" by Fergie

• "Lose Yourself" by Eminem

• "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor

• "Bugler's Dream" by Leo Arnaud

• "One Shining Moment" by Luther Vandross

• The Jock Jams Megamix're welcome.

26. Play the "Beer Olympics" drinking game

And in case it's been awhile, here are the rules. You might want to limit the number of rounds played so that everyone's in good enough shape to actually watch the olympics afterwards.

41. Get outside and play a game yourself


Okay, so we don't all have an Olympic-sized swimming pool or tennis court in our backyards. Still, it's worth it to kick around the soccer ball or play a round of volleyball to keep active and burn off the calories you've been ingesting all day watching the Olympics inside!

47. Make wreaths out of leaves, grass, or anything else green in your backyard

All you need is some twine (or scotch tape if you don't mind it looking a bit janky), sticks, and greenery to make it.

50. Serve Goldschlager with every gold medal ceremony

I mean, it has bits of REAL GOLD floating around inside of it! It's like drinking 1/100th of a gold medal yourself. Go on, you deserve it.
