Emeryville, California – Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, 2010 – Regardless of the outcome, New Orleans Saints, or Indianapolis Colts, sprinting from the twenty to the forty to the fifty to the five yard line could cause a peculiar phenomenon known among sports afficionados as Super Bowl Feet, a particularly troublesome condition which causes the big toe to get sacked, the middle toe to fumble and the little toe to go deep to the end zone. And that’s just on the left foot. With Super Bowl Feet, the right foot has been known to want to stay in bed all day.
The worst cases have been known to develop on Super Bowl Sunday and can be seen among female sports fans who have been doing the twenty-to-forty-to-fifty sprint between the refrigerator, the stove and the corner store for extra chips, dip and wings, in sideline service to the twentysomethings, fortysometings and fiftysomethings who are actually watching the contest.
