There are few things more American than football. Heck, it's even in the name, "American Football." The sport itself is a microcosm of this amazing country. It's tough, gritty, spastic, and full of ego-filled lunatics. That is quite literally the definition of America. It's amazing.

While we all love the action on the field, football season (and especially the Super Bowl) is much more than that. The sport also brings family and friends together. We spend time with one another enjoying the games and good company. However, there's one thing that always makes these gatherings better: gluttony.

Football was invented to be enjoyed while stuffing our faces with delicious food and beverages (adult ones preferable). The classics like chicken wings, nachos, pizza, burgers, cheesesteaks, and basically anything else fried are true staples of a good weekend of football-watching. Plus, who doesn't want to wash that down with a tall cool one? So, considering this Sunday is the true Grandaddy of them all, it's time to go big.

With this in mind, it got me wondering where Mainers enjoy stuffing their faces during the Super Bowl. Where can we go to enjoy some great food with friends, while watching two teams battle it out for ultimate supremacy?

That's why we put out the call to you on our social media. We wanted to hear about those places in Maine that are football meccas.

The reaction was great. Below is a list of many of the locations given to us. The results included sports bars, pubs, pizza joints, and entertainment centers from around the state. It's a wonderfully diverse look at where Mainers love watching football, and especially the Super Bowl.

How many of these places have you been to? Where is your favorite place to watch the game?
