Survey: Fifteen Percent Would Miss Birth Of Child To Attend Super Bowl

What would you miss to attend a Super Bowl Game? If you are like many Americans, apparently just about anything. A recently-released survey from CouponCabin.com showed that the Super Bowl has become more important than just about anything to Americans.

  • Twenty-one percent of those polled said they would skip an important work responsibility to attend the game.
  • ↵
  • Twenty percent said they would skip the wedding of a close friend or family member.
  • ↵
  • Nineteen percent said they would pass on attending the funeral of a loved one.
  • ↵
  • Fifteen percent said they would go to the Super Bowl rather than attend the birth of their own child.

So, wives, other family members and work take a back seat to the event that approximately 40 percent of those surveyed consider the best major U.S. sporting event.

What would you miss if you had tickets to the big game? Especially if your team was involved?
