Do rabbis belong at Super Bowl parties? And if so, what should they do during commercials which display halachically prohibited sights, or during the camera's pan to the cheerleaders? [I'm not raising the bitul torah question; if you are reading my blog, you have no right to condemn someone else for wasting time from Torah study...]
I went a couple of times over the years, and hung around in the back where I could conveniently start a conversation with someone during commercials. I liked being with my friends/peers, I loved the subs, and I felt the tug of the game even though my New York Jets never got that far in the playoffs. I wasn't able to stick around for long in any case, as there were always too many other things to do, so I would just catch a few minutes here and there. But this question of whether I belonged always bothered me.
So: How do you think rabbis should handle invitations to the party, or their own desire to watch? And what about shuls which actually hold their own, official Super Bowl parties?
