Are You Suffering From The Big Game Blues?
If January 24 is said to be the most depressing day of the year, I would vote for the day after the Superbowl as the second.
Whether you cared who won or lost, most people who would normally never wager or bet on the game seem to do so for this contest. This means most people lost some money. After all, as the saying goes: Vegas wasn't built on winners. And just like the lottery, office pools, or as I like to refer them, short term investment plans gives hope to score a huge windfall fast, and when that doesn't happen, hope (and the money) is lost, it is easy to get depressed for a while. Especially if the winner is someone you despise.
But losing money is just a part of it. Now that Super Bowl LV (55th) is in the books football fans will need to find other ways to entertain and occupy their time. And depending on the type of fan, that means filling the void that was Thursday nights, Sunday ALL DAY and into the night, and Monday nights. I mean what are you going to do? Start a hobby? Workaround the house? Spend more time with the family? That has already happened, to the extreme, in 2020.
The social interaction aspect of the games has now been taken away. People who would traditionally get together for a specific game, cheering for their team now will need to wait another year before they can share in the camaraderie of being a fan. I mean who wants to exchange weekly outings to watch football, with a book club? I'm looking at you Baker Mayfield.
So if you are feeling a little down, don't worry. Spring will be here before you know it and that's when all Bills Fans will start to come out of hibernation. How can you tell? It's easy. Listen for the "This is our year" chirps and you will find your kin.
