The absolute best place to sit during football parties is a leather club chair and the best place to find them is at Nebraska FurnitureMart in Omaha. We found ours in the clearance section for 500 bucks.
They have all sorts of furniture, and is a one-stop Nebraska version of IKEA. THe furniture however, is not as cheap as IKEA, but you get the idea.
Check them out first before the box furniture stores in Lincoln.
