With another Super Bowl just a few months out, Radass brings you 3 little known facts about the biggest game of the year.
On Super Bowl Sunday Americans consume more food than any other day of the year, except Thanksgiving. It has been estimated that we collectively spend $50 million on food for the big day. Any football fan knows the Super Bowl Sunday isn’t complete without pizza, which is why pizza delivery guys log nearly 4 million miles supplying hungry fans with tasty goodness.
Football and beer, could there be a better combo? Few would dare to make an argument considering that Americans tend to consume millions of gallons of beer nearly every Super Bowl. Based on those numbers nearly every man, woman, and child (no, we’re not promoting underage drinking) would need to consume an entire gallon (and I’m sure for some a quite bit more). So how much does all this liquid courage cost? During the week leading up to the big day beer sales tend to increase by almost $18 million on average.
3. The Hang Over
Many could make the argument that the Monday after the Super Bowl should be a National Holiday. When you take into consideration that 6% of Americans call in sick and those who do make it to work are in rough condition, it seems like a logical solution to just give everyone the day off. Hopefully next year we can all look forward to staying in bed and nursing our (possibly even worse) hangover.
Despite the issues and controversies within and around the NFL over the past few years, people are still watching football and they’re still enjoying the sport. We here at Radass like staying with the times and getting into the game just as much as anyone. In another few months, you can bet that everyone will be stocking up again and getting ready to see one team pummel another into the turf for the right to hold up that trophy. Enjoy that day when it comes Radasser’s, but try to make sure you take the day after off.
