The Baby's Coming? I'd Rather Watch Football

Published January 31, 2012 1:01 PM by Barbara Mercer

Who doesn’t love a good Super Bowl party? A bunch of friends, a whole lot of food we probably shouldn’t eat and maybe some beers, too. But would it be worth missing out on a major life event?

A recent online survey indicates 15 percent of U.S. adults say they would miss the birth of their child for the Super Bowl.

The survey of 2,625 U.S. adults indicated  21 percent of them said they'd miss important work responsibility for the big football game;  20 percent said they'd miss a wedding of a close friend; and 19 percent said they would miss the funeral of a loved one.

Look out, ladies, if your due date is this Sunday: 56 percent of U.S. adults said they plan to watch the Super Bowl this year -- 67 percent of men and 46 percent of women.

Of those who said they plan to watch the Super Bowl, 47 percent said they will watch because they love the NFL; 37 percent said they will watch the game primarily for the commercials; and 33 percent said they will watch because it's fun to go to a Super Bowl party. (See?)

What’s so important to you that you would risk the wrath of family members or co-workers?
