What Americans Would Give Up To See Their Team In The Super Bowl
We're inching closer and closer to Super Sunday where the Los Angeles Rams will try to prevent the New England Patriots from capturing their sixth Championship in the Brady-Belichick era.
Every year there can only be one winner and ultimately 30 teams don't make it to the first weekend in February which makes this Sunday very special where your team is playing.
Recently, Americans were polled to see exactly how much seeing their team play in the Super Bowl meant to them and which major events in their lives they'd be willing to skip out on.
According to Wallethub here were the Top 5 events the American people would skip in order to see their squad play in a Super Bowl:
5. Birth of their child (15%)
4. The funeral of a loved one (19%)
3. The wedding of a close friend or family member (20%)
2. Important work (21%)
1. Vacation (23%)
The one that jumps out at me is birth of a child, #comeonman.
Now, let's look at what we the people would ultimately give up in order to see our favorite team win the Super Bowl:
- Vacation days for one year (52%)
- Annual Bonus (31%)
- Savings Account Balance (14%)
- 401k Plan (3%)
Whoa, I don't know if I'd give up my 401K or my entire savings in order to see my team win the Super Bowl although that can be subjective due to how much you have in both accounts (which wouldn't be much for this guy).
Nevertheless, a very interesting survey showing how much people really care about seeing their team in and winning the Super Bowl. For Patriots fans, they're good for about a lifetime at this point.
