Happy National Football Hangover Day. Well, not HAPPY. Football is over for the season.

On the bright side, it was an exciting game. Both teams were in it the whole time and even took it into overtime. It will go down as a certified Super Bowl classic. Both teams showed up with stellar defense and made it a close game. Above all, it was a great end to a long season.

The overtime finish made it a late night. None of us wanted to get up early and show up to work today. As we know, Super Bowl Sunday is a day when sports fans gather together to celebrate and indulge in food and drink, some in more excess than others. It’s estimated nearly 14 million people call into work “sick” the day after the big game. If this applies to you, congratulations! You officially join millions of other fans nursing a massive football hangover and headache!

National Football Hangover Day was started by ESPN host and sports personality Katie Nolan in January 2019. Nolan reasoned that the eventfulness of staying up late to watch football deserves an entire day to recover the day after.
