Why I Hate The Superbowl

Why i hate the superbowl

I know it is un-American to admit this but I hate everything about the superbowl and what it says about our country. Obesity related diseases are killing off our citizens at a record breaking pace but people who ‘dont have time’ to workout somehow find the time for a 6 hour superbowl party.

Then the culinary aspect of the superbowl. Many of these obese folks who dont have time to workout and ‘cant afford’ to eat healthy somehow find hundreds of dollars to throw a superbowl party or to  buy tickets to the game.  What can be more American than beer, hot dogs, pizza, and cheese-food smothered nachos. Yum yum.

Football fans out there will tell me to “lighten up” because its just one day. No, its NOT just one day but rather a cancerous mindset.  A strong, healthy, ripped physique is not the result of  one big decision but rather the hundreds of tiny decisions we make every day. Gym after work or watch TV because we had a ‘bad day’?  Fast food for lunch or pack a lunch of grilled chicked and broccoli?  Take the stairs or the elevator?

  1. Think about all the terrible injuries that these football players suffer. It’s just too brutal for my taste. Exercise is a wonderful thing, but gladiator contests leave me cold.

    OK, perhaps the professionals are well compensated for their crippling injuries. Trouble is, for every professional there are 100 who wreck themselves before they get to that big pay check.

  2. Scooby is right, it is a cancerous mindset. It’s not just the Superbowl itself but every weekend during the football season with guys sitting around on the couch stuffing their faces. You see them the next day all hungover, bloated with puffy faces dragging themselves to work. It’s absolutely sickening watching them kill themselves all for a game that will be meaningless in a few days.

  3. “No, its NOT just one day but rather a cancerous mindset. A strong, healthy, ripped physique is not the result of one big decision but rather the hundreds of tiny decisions we make every day.” You’re pushing your values on to people. I thought that was a big no-no. I know you will delete this, but then I’ll know that you’ve read it.

  4. you can also add in the fact that American football, at least professional one, has a very high and unhealthy price on the athlete’s body and especially the brain, from all the small traumas they suffer in every game.
