Super Bowl Sunday = not so super Monday

Chances are, you spent Sunday night sighting in front of your television watching the Super Bowl. If not, seriously, what were you doing? It may be the only football game I dedicate myself to watching all year but it's tradition. If only for the commercials and half time show.

If you did tune in, chances are Monday morning you found yourself doing some other Super Bowl traditions:

  • Hugging the toilet. For one reason or another, the morning after Super Bowl, your body hates you. You spent the better part of the day shoving terrible things in your body. Cheese, grease, meat, wings, chips, dip, beer, vodka....I'm not sure what it is about this time of year that turns everyone into gluttonous whores but it's the same thing every year. I did my part and made some delicious dips for people to enjoy Sunday evening and hate Monday morning. If you're team won you probably celebrated with drinks or shots and if you're team lost you probably comforted the pain with drinks or shots.

  • Which brings me to my next point...calling in sick. Apparently the Monday after Super Bowl is one of the most popular times for workers to call in sick. Be it a booze hangover or a food hangover, nobody feels great. Tsk tsk if you are one of these people. If you chose to stick it out and head into work nauseous good for you! Your employer thanks you I'm sure, even if it is your most unproductive day to date.

  • You are on the run from a gambling bet gone wrong. If this is you. What are you doing reading? Pack up and go man!

Happy Tuesday!
