Tried to put all the best ones in this post.

11 Personalities Guaranteed to Ruin Your Super Bowl Party
By DJ Gallo, Sean McGrane
Many folks agonize over throwing or attending the perfect party, but agony is futile because, really, all Super Bowl parties feature the same things: lots of nachos, lots of beer and the following infuriating cast of characters.
The Guy Who Hasn't Paid Attention to the NFL in a Decade
He won't be able to get over the fact that the 49ers aren't in it this year and may ask if Reggie White or Walter Payton still play football. If you're bored, it's fun to make football references to him all night so he feels like he is some sort of eunuch-like non-man.
The Guy Who's in It for the Commercials
He won't pay attention to the game, but he'll shoot to the TV like a laser when the commercials come on. He'll spend the first few minutes after each commercial break--important plays or not--analyzing what everyone else just saw, routinely mentioning that "that last ad was pretty good, but not even close to the George Costanza Rold Gold ad in '98 or the P-Diddy Pepsi truck ad in '04." This guy also probably loved the Bud Bowl and will get really quiet and attentive during the ads for E.D. drugs.
The "Tomorrow Should Definitely Be a National Holiday" Guy
In this tool's view, a day when everyone's hung-over and unproductive would fit perfectly on the federal holiday ledger between the day in mid-January commemorating civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and the day in mid-February commemorating Presidents Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.
The Guy Who's in a Squares Pool at Work
In a squares pool, everyone throws in a buck or two, and a couple people walk away with an extra 50 bucks. It's a friendly way to keep everyone involved, but there will always be one overly intense guy who shows up to your party with his own squares chart from work, where he bought a $250 square and--as he'll be certain to remind you--could win a ton of money if the Pats manage a field goal and a safety, and the Giants get a touchdown and a two-point conversion. You'll be able to spot him as the one furiously shouting, "Why the hell didn't they go for two?" when the Pats score a TD to go up 14-3.
The Football Pro Guy
Not necessarily a fan of either team, the Football Pro will spend the whole party watching the game on one of the smaller TVs on the fringe, "because I don't want to miss a play and I can't hear the announcers in that other room." He's likely to be a meatier fellow, probably will spend halftime reminiscing about high school football and will constantly use phrases like "fade hook route" and "flanker-back." He'll also let is slip at some point that he would have made it to the pros if not for an unfortunate knee injury in high school. Which may be true. Although the fact that he's 5-foot-8 with short, stubby sausage fingers probably didn't help.
Obnoxious Girl Who Cheers Way too Hard
Moderately attractive but not actually hot, she'll be decked out in full regalia of whichever team the guy she wants to sleep with likes. She'll celebrate a relatively innocuous first quarter field goal like it's just clinched the win, and will instantly show a disturbing amount of concern if a player on her adopted team is slow getting up. It'll be clear that she was molested by her father during NFL games as a child, and should be pitied, not reviled.
The "Is it Cool If I Smoke in Here?" Guy
Even though people will be politely smoking in the backyard, at least one guy will pop up during a semi-important moment in the game and ask, "I don't want to miss this drive--is it cool if I smoke in here?" The answer, as always, is an awkward "I guess," although it's definitely not cool at all.
The "Line Just Moved Half-Point" Guy
Likely to befriend the Guy Who's in a Squares Pool at Work, this guy will bet on everything and let everyone know it. He'll lose $150 on the opening coin toss, but hit nice on his 6:1 wager that a tight end will produce the first score. He'll be really concerned that the third-quarter line moved a half-point during halftime, but he'll look real good on the over, so he won't mind laying that extra half-point. He also threw down $10 bucks at 850,000:1 that a tornado will tear through the stadium during the third quarter... you know, just for the hell of it.
The Little Kid
He's there because his parents were too cheap to hire a babysitter for the night. And while they brought their kid, they probably forgot to bring the chips and beer they signed up for. So while it's not really the kid's fault that he is there to keep sticking his hand in the pretzels after picking his nose, if he does it again he's getting cracked upside the head with a beer bottle.
The "Told You So" Guy
This guy will spend the entire game informing everyone that everything that he predicted would come to pass has happened. Did he? Probably not. But who knows--no one has listened to the bull**** that constantly flows from this guy's mouth in years.
The "Favored Team Apparel Guy"
You can spot this guy immediately upon entering the party--he's decked out in logoed apparel of the team favored to win the game, in this case The Patriots. The stuff is so new it looks like he may have picked it up at the mall on the way over to the party. The tags may even still be attached. You can attempt to call the guy out on his duplicity: "Hey, weren't you a Colts fan last year and a Steelers fan the year before that?" But he'll just mumble something about having an aunt who lives in his new favorite team's city which is why he's rooted for them since he was a kid. It's all bull****, of course, but at least the guy isn't completely lacking in loyalty. Which, he'll be sure to tell you, is why he still lives with his parents.
The "Fantasy Football Guy"
Fantasy Football Guy spends the entire game pointing out to all who would hear which players were on his fantasy football team this year and in years past. "Oh, man. Great touchdown by Laurence Maroney there. I wish he would have done that more for my fantasy team this year." Hey, buddy, if you like fantasies so much, here's one for you: we all hope you're killed by a drunk driver on the way home tonight.
The following were created/contributed by Timmy:
(one of his finest moments that thread I might add)
Game is Fixed Guy
- Every close play and it's the (networks,refs,Vegas) manipulating the game. They've cost him a fortune.
Stink Up the Bathroom Guy
- Comes out of the bathroom laughing, holding his nose, and announcing "that bathroom will have to be destroyed".
Hey They Stole That Play From Us Guy
- The guy who claims the last play was invented by his high school team. This will lead to a long story about
a big game won with that play, featuring this guy. At some point he'll push aside an ottoman and get down in a line of scrimmage stance as he's telling you the story. He's always the fattest guy at the party. Usually played guard in high school solely because of his size.
Wants All the Penalties Explained Fat Chick
- Fat Chick who wants to know what (grounding, offsides, interference etc.) means. If she was hot, guys would be all over her. She gets a two word explanation.
Take Off the Shirt Guy
-Guy who always takes off his shirt no matter what the occasion. Will often wait for a big play, as if the tension is so unbearable that he has to take his shirt off. Often Italian or Greek.
Throw the Flag Guy
- Guy who yells Throw the Flag!!! after every close call that doesn't go his teams way. Even after the replays show, and commentators agree, that the call on the field is correct, this guy is more than willing to drain his team's timeouts for no good reason. Also thinks yelling frantically three inches from your TV will get the flag on the field. When he thinks his team benefitted from a bad call, he quickly becomes Snap the Ball Guy. During baseball he season he turns into Balk!! Guy.
Ugly Face/Hot Bod Chick
-As a guy you naturally size up all the chicks and decide who you would do and who you wouldn't. Ugly Face/Hot Body Chick is such a quandry that you can't make up your mind and enjoy the game. You notice other men rubbing their chins and squinting at her too. After staring at her for 15 minutes, you decide that you wouldn't do her and get back to the game. But then she gets up to go to the bathroom and you realize that DAMN that body is hot.....
I'm Really Fat Where is Your Most Ricketty Chair Lady
- You know she's coming. You've left the couch and Lazy Boy open for her. When she comes to the door, you'll lead her. But then you go dowstairs for ice, and when you return you see that she pulled one of the rickety chairs from the childrens table and plopped down on it. The chair that you bought for a buck at a garage sale and even you wouldn't sit on.. and you're half her size. Evidently she thinks it's an optical illusion that will make her look smaller. You wince every time she shifts.
Who Wants to Arm Wrestle Guy
- Guy who has four beers and wants to arm wrestle everyone. When he gets no takers, he complains the room is full of homos and offers to wrestle left-handed.
Mr. Divides the Pizza Bill to the Exact Penny
Ok Guys. Everyone owesfourteen dollars and eleven cents.
Allergic to Nuts Kid
- His parents couldn't get a babysitter because surprisingly no teenage girl wanted $20 to have a kid drop dead on her watch. Even though he has a paper bag with his name written on it, containing raisins and a pear, he's always hovering around the chip table. During every big third down play his mother holds up something and yells, "Are there nuts in this!?" In your head you yell, "How the f* would I know!?" These kids come in several varities... gluten-free kid... bee sting kid.... etc.
How Much Time is Left Chick (aka) I Thought You Said There Was Five Minutes Left Chick
- Chick who doesn't even know who's playing. She's been asking how much time is left since the second quarter. She always asks when your team just threw an incomplete pass on a crucial third down. You want to tell her that THE PLAY CLOCK IS ON THE 50 INCH TV, B**CH!!
The “You Know What You Need In Here?” Guy
This guy will start giving you completely unsolicited advice about what you need to do in your home to make it better. This could involve the arrangement of your furniture, the placement or size of your TV, your choice of paint on the wall, pretty much anything in your house. Funny thing is, you've been to this guy's place and would start by suggesting demolition if you were ever asked of your opinion (which you of course would never be asked). Oh, and this guy always knows another "guy" that could do the particular job that he's suggesting for dirt cheap. Thank him for his expert opinion and critique and tell him you like your house just the way it is.
From Johnny Hector:
The "Brew Switcharoo" Guy
This guy is gracious enough to bring some beer along with him to the party, except that it's a 12-pack of skunked Coors Light that's been sitting in his garage for 8 months. Instead of drinking the swill that he brought to the party, he instead opts to drink all of the Heinekens that some other partygoer brought along, leaving said partygoer to either go on a beer run and miss the game or be subjected to drink what amounts to chilled horse piss. This guy is also prone to finishing off the last of the wings and urinating on your toilet seat.
The "When Are You Going to Be Home" Wife:
She calls you several times throughout the 2nd Half to find out what time you're going to be home from your friend's party. Apparently, it would be too difficult to simply tune to the game and see how much time was left. Of course, you will inevitably get "stuck in traffic" on the way home from your friend's house, which is 1/2 mile away, so that you can finish the remaining beer and food.
The "I Almost Had /Gave Up Super Bowl Tickets" Guy
Almost always some blowhard guy that will never hesitate to mention "Dude, I coulda been there man!" but offers up lame excuses on why he couldn't i.e. had to work, sold them because he needed the money etc. Usually the guy who said he sold them sold them for like 10 grand (lie) and shows up with the crappiest beer [see Brew-Switcharoo Guy] If his teams wins, later devolves into sappy "Dude I Shoulda Went" Guy
From Big L:
The "What Else Do You Have To Drink?" Guy
- Guy who brings nothing to the party, then complains about the kind of beer you have and/or it's temperature.
