“Super Sunday Thoughts”

super-bowl-i-1967I have no statistics to prove it, but I’m sure the American workplace will be adversely affected on Monday, the day after XXIV. The game will be the focus of conversation, and distractions happy and sad will be the order of the day, not to mention millions of hangovers. I wouldn’t buy a toaster or a parachute manufactured the day after Super Bowl XXIV. You cannot engender such torrid anticipation for an event so great that it requires Roman numerals as a suffix, then expect there to be no social repercussions at its end.’

–Robert Klein, “America’s Pastime: Selling the Big Game,” 1990 January 28th, The New York Times
