Stupid Super Bowl Party Tradition: Fish Shooters

Posted:
VISALIA, Calif. (KMPH) -

A group in Visalia has been holding a Super Bowl party every year since the early 90's.   The host is a Niners fan but you don't have to root for the red and gold to be invited.   

The party at Russell Notturno's has been an annual event for sixteen or seventeen years.   No one could seem to pin it down.  There's a monster tv screen in the house, and a big screen in the back.  

Shooters are served all game long.  It's served with alcohol and what the guys call sushi.   Notturno calls it a stupid tradition started years ago.  "We started a little game throwing beer caps in a bucket and we needed a consequence.   If you missed the bucket my roommate said let's swallow a gold fish and that's where it started."

Notturno says they go through 50 to 100 fish every year.   It seems the majority of the party goers were Niners fans.   The brought their own cups and showed their support on their cheeks.  

John Huerta is a Rams fan but he never misses the party.  "It's one of those things that draw the neighbors around.   If they weren't here watching it they could stay out at home and see it from their back yard anyway." The party even featured a taco truck ready to serve Mexican dishes.
