When Teams (Flyers, Sixers, Eagles and Phillies) Lose, Fans Tackle Fatty Foods
 
Philly is going to see a lot more heffers..already one of the fattest cities in the nation



Quote:

Using archival and experimental data, we showed that vicarious defeats experienced by fans when their favorite football team loses lead them to consume less healthy food. On the Mondays following a Sunday National Football League (NFL) game, saturated-fat and food-calorie intake increase significantly in cities with losing teams, decrease in cities with winning teams, and remain at their usual levels in comparable cities without an NFL team or with an NFL team that did not play. These effects are greater in cities with the most committed fans, when the opponents are more evenly matched, and when the defeats are narrow. We found similar results when measuring the actual or intended food consumption of French soccer fans who had previously been asked to write about or watch highlights from victories or defeats of soccer teams. However, these unhealthy consequences of vicarious defeats disappear when supporters spontaneously self-affirm or are given the opportunity to do so.

PornHub also saw massive spikes after a team lost in their respective sport's finals (Boston in the last Cup and San Antonio in the NBA Finals).
