Science has determined that if your team loses the Super Bowl, you have a 27% increased chance of death from heart attack. Here's the kicker - that is for WOMEN. For MEN it only goes up 15%. Yup - even the researchers were surprised. (Usually the term "Get a Life" is applied to men)

As best I can tell, the study did not take into consideration if each woman who had a heart attack had just spent 4 hours of her Sabbath watching her husband curse at the TV and grind Doritos into the carpet, or if that was just accepted as the "control group.". (Obviously, I should have been a famous scientist, because of the ease with which I can use terms like "control group.")
Curiously, there are no further studies that suggest that NFL players drop dead when YOU are having a bad day at work.
