This takes "fans pretending that they are part of the team and somehow affect the outcome of sport contests" to a whole new level.

As a 33yr old KC Royals fan I agree with this study. I have no kids.

I assume it is more, lots of people getting drunk and partying may affect birth rates.

On 6 May 2009, Andrés Iniesta scored a last minute goal against Chelsea FC, which put Football Club Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League final. Nine months later, Catalonia's local radio station broadcast the results of an informal survey of five hospitals, showing a 45% increase in the number of births.
The children born during this boom were dubbed "the Iniesta generation."

It doesn't mention that all of thebabies were fathered by Andrés Iniesta?

Sporting success gets guys laid.  That's the real story here, ripped from yesterday's headlines.

Spiking it in the end zone has no effect on birth rates...
