  • The gang miss the Super Bowl for a funeral and must go the entire next day without finding out the score.

    We all know that TV shows can't say much about the Super Bowl except they're watching it. Since the episodes are filmed months before, you can't say the team or result among other things. So we've seen a few sitcoms display their creativity of how to have a decent Super Bowl episode and How I Met Your Mother did not disappoint. The gang miss the Super Bowl for the funeral of a guy they honestly don't remember. They all endure hilarious events in order to prevent from finding out the result. Everyone besides Ted somehow accidentally or intentionally finds out the score. Barney promises not to tell who won when they finally meet back up but he excuses himself where he screams because he lost all the bets he made, ruining for the others because he said who he was betting on. Despite it all, the gang still has a great time watching the Super Bowl in a great episode.
