#1 Reason to Be Sorry You Watched the Super Bowl: YOUR TEAM LOST!
You spent $300 on beer and pizza to throw a Super Bowl party and your favorite team lost! On Super Bowl Monday, your wife said you have to clean all the bathrooms, the spilled beer and the salsa stains on the rug! And, you have to take the dog to the vet because someone gave it too much beer. Not only did your team lose, but all the guys in the bowling alley who are fans of the other team are rubbing your nose in it. And you lost $10 bucks on the office football pool! Great Super Bowl Monday, alright! Ugh!
#2 Reason to Be Sorry You Watched the Super Bowl: YOUR TEAM WON!
Now that sounds like something to celebrate, doesn’t it? Well, duh! You did celebrate! You partied in the street. You shot off firecrackers. You drove up and down main street blowing your horn at midnight. You got picked up for drunk driving and spent the night in jail because your significant other was safely tucked in bed with the phone turned off. Oh yeah, you missed work on Super Bowl Monday, and your boss says you’re on VERY THIN ICE there. Do you regret watching the Super Bowl, yet?
