For the love of the Super Bowl

My sister Karen sent me this astounding poll of what major life events people would skip to watch the Super Bowl.
Some of us love football, but a few select individuals said they love it so much they'd skip some major life events for Super Bowl tickets.
In an online survey sponsored by, of 2,625 U.S. adults polled, about 21 percent said they'd miss an important work-related duty to attend the NFL's big game, and about 20 percent said they would miss a loved one's wedding or a funeral to watch the ballet of bulldozers on the gridiron.
The poll, conducted by Harris Interactive from Jan. 9-11, also revealed that America's love affair with football is so deep that about 15 percent of those surveyed said they would skip the birth of their child to attend the game.

There's no word on how many football fans would sell their soul for Super Bowl tickets as that question was left out of the poll.
