Super Bowl 52 Drinking Game - Philadelphia Eagles vs. New England Patriots
The population of the United States was 323.1 million as of 2016. The population of Massachusetts was 6.8 million. Factor in an entirely unscientific 5% bandwagon rate, and only about 7% of the population will be cheering for the Patriots to win their sixth Super Bowl in 16 years. This means the other 93% of us will need an adult beverage or ten to make it through the Pats love fest on our televisions or to celebrate the upset victory by the Eagles I'm predicting.
So whether you are a beleaguered fan of a now fallen playoff contending team begrudgingly cheering for the underdog, or you are welcoming the next notch in the belt of Belichick and Brady's evil empire. Stack your plate, grab a big glass to avoid having to get up too many times, and get ready for Super Bowl 52.
