There are a lot of things that go into a good Super Bowl party. The host needs to make sure the party has plenty of seating around at least one big television. But the unquestioned most important part of a Super Bowl party is the food.

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo went all out with his spread, buying enough Chipotle to feed an entire team.

Rizzo, who is originally from Florida, made it clear who he was cheering for in the big game. Partially because of his sister and partially because of Peyton Manning, Rizzo had a good Sunday.

With the Broncos beating the Panthers, officially ending the football season, Rizzo wasted no time in turning his focus to something a little more important to his employers.

Hopefully Rizzo didn’t throw back too much Chipotle. The chain restaurant hasn’t exactly had the best month ever, and is closing up shop Monday nationwide for a four-hour company meeting.
