Actually, gametime snacks are a very likely cause of violence during the Superbowl. There have been numerous studies showing that domestic violence spikes during the big game, with it being entirely possible that some reports might say as many as 1 in 3 women suffer during the game (the number may be even higher if you consider unreported incidents). Up to 50 percent -- possibly more, possible less -- of these incidents may involve snacks or the delivery of snacks, especially when the delivery of snacks involves blocking the television during a key play. I see no reason why it couldn't be as many as 70 percent of all incidents that involve that specific situation.

Snack food killing me is one of the main reasons I watch the game.

People do what they see is successful on television. In this case they see 300lb linemen and coaches making millions a year on a diet of high calorie foods. Add into the equation the number of successful overweight sitcom dads with attractive, skinny wives and skinny children you come to realization that fat = good.

Got the first two right, misread the third one and the rest were entirely ridiculous. I assumed there was a point to the quiz.

See, in the first question the trick was that people might assume that light beer was better for you so you could drink three of them.

Most of the questions though relied on having actual knowledge of caloric content. How am I supposed to know how many calories are in a Nathan's pig in the blanket?

So you're posting on something you don't care about?

You get a 3/10 on trolling

So will the smoking and drinking every day, I'm not stopping either one of those things any time soon either.

Meh, our gametime snacks don't really differ a helluva lot from our regular dinners. Just that the veggies are raw. Other than that, the ribs are about the same. The chicken is about the same (found this fantastic bloody Mary mix I'm going to turn into a sauce). The shrimp is about the same. Caloric intake is probably about the same, If anything it's a health booster since we'll be lowering stress by socializing with good company.

I got the chips one right, mostly cause I'm counting my calorie intake and had chips with a sandwich. The chips I had were 130 calories for about 11 chips.

Very soon Huffpo will have a piece on the number of women who failed to make sammiches when "asked"

Yes, my screwdriver gummi bears are bad things waiting to happen, but the chorizo-and-cheese-stuffed jalapenos are still made of vegetable, and the gumbo has some okra in it.

/pity about the frame for the jello shot Lombardi Trophy

It's more of a being Captain Obvious. Norv obviously hates the Super Bowl, that's why he tries so hard to avoid having a chance to play in it.

This is just as annoying as parents who completely ban junk food, as though it's not possible to moderate anything or designate special occasions.

Unless you consume something that's actually toxic, your body will recover from one day of unhealthy eating as though it never happened.

There are 365 days in the year and if you can't pick a few where you actually relax you're probably going to die of stress just as soon as you would if you had a poor diet.

So much this. My parents were great about this.

"I want cookies!"

"Ok, here's one Oreo. Enjoy."

"I want pop!"

"Here's some apple juice, just as good. Enjoy."

I use to work for a food co. that made large 5lb bags of nacho cheese sauce. Now I knew the kind of ingredients that went into that crap, but when ever I was invited over for a football game I would just use their crockpot to heat it all up, set it out with a few bags of chips and just watch the entire party gravitate to the cheese.
/damn right it's good, it's water, oil, cheese powders, and a shiat ton of salt.

I'd much rather have the life of Tom Brady than Vince Wilfork. But maybe that's just me.

Also, you forgot to mention the 6 hours of training a day they do in conjunction with those high calorie diets.

I thought this was going to be about the time a plate of Rice Krispy treats pulled a knife on me.
