"Touchdown or field goal, I get all excited. I've been watching football all my life practically, my husband was a great football fan." said Matsunaga.

This is a super party for Plaza at Punchbowl residents, there's the similar tasty sides and end zone celebrations.But for some at this party, the sport isn't quite the same.

"In the old days you could hit somebody, smash them, beat them up and nowadays you can't even touch them until they catch the ball," said Resident Bob Rose.

In this Cardinals/Steelers square off, this Super Bowl brings camaraderie.

"Instead of being in their room, it's nice to just go out and have a good time," said Activities Assistant Jessica Uyeki.

With this super celebration, these fans prove you're never too old when it comes to the Super Bowl, coast to coast,

"Sea to shining sea," said Matsunaga.

It was a mixed group of Steelers and Cardinal fans in the crowd. But they all agreed on making a round a bingo the perfect post-game activity.
