…apparently a whole mess of stuff, according to the average American. And I thought it was just me and my fellow chicks who suffered from an odd, unhealthy obsession with the game. But nope, it turns out the rest of you are a bunch of weirdos, too! Hooray!!
According to a survey run by CouponCabin.com (I know, I know…but just hear me out), 20% of people said they would miss a loved one’s funeral if their favorite team was in the game. (Say what?!!!) 21% would miss an important work responsibility and 20 percent would miss the wedding of a close friend. (If someone cares so little about the Super Bowl that they would plan their wedding on game day, are they really worth being friends with, anyways?)
Here is the one that really blew my mind. 15% of those surveyed said they would miss the birth of their child for the game!! Okay I love football and all but Nola Chick has to draw the line somewhere. Although, I would certainly want the game on in the delivery room, even if I’m the one doing the pushing!
So the question remains: do you agree with this survey or are these folks bat shit crazy?
