I AM A STEELER FAN! I watched their tragic performance on Monday Night Football last night. I live on the west coast so the game started during my dinner time. I hurried the dog though our usual walk, ate what I had planned, logged my food and watched the rest of the game. No matter what happened during the game, even when they made that ridiculously BAD CALL that stopped the Steeler momentum, I didn't get up to snack. If the Steelers had been winning, I wouldn't have gotten up to snack. It is simply not my habit to snack in the evening. There is snack food in my kitchen, but I've got self-imposed rules about when and how much I'll eat. Mindless munching during Monday Night Football isn't part of my plan.
Now that I'm thinking about it, I did drink more water during the game than I normally do in the evening. Plain water. I can live with that.
Gee, Nell! You throw the remote? Yeah, that's what I'd expect from a Redskin fan.

I am a Redskins fan. If losing at football meant eating more junk I'd be the size of the stadium by now. I eat breakfast about 8, lunch about noon, and dinner about 6. If the game happens to be on at dinnertime, I'll eat while watching, but I don't vary the menu based on the game; the meal was planned long before the game started. I find it interesting that the Steelers fan in the article had all that junk in the house. What was it there for but to eat it? I have moaned and groaned (calorie free), gnashed my teeth (calorie free) and thrown the remote (calorie free), all to no avail. We still lose. No sympathy here, especially a Redskins fan for a Steelers fan.

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
I imagine it applies as well to other entertainments. I've often wondered if the benefit to NWCR maintainers of watching less TV included less emotional roller coasters as well as less time sitting and less time exposed to advertising.
