Father Sean’s sermon on February 1st, Super Bowl Sunday, mentioned the gluttonous amounts of food Americans will consume on this Football “Holy” Day. According to the Washington Post, Americans purchase more groceries in the two weeks before the Super Bowl than any other time of the year, including Thanksgiving. And Americans will also eat more than 1.2 billion chicken wings, 11 million slices of Domino’s pizza, 11.2 million potato chips, 8.2 million pounds of tortilla chips, and all sorts of other delicious, but caloric fare. And it is reported that we eat even more if our team loses! The article did not mention how much beer or soda is consumed to wash it all down or Tums to address the post-game indigestion!
