Scott Norwood almost caused this. All kidding aside, I wonder if this fully generalizes to America. I know we love our sports, but there seems to be a particular passion for soccer in Europe that possibly eclipses even our love of football. On the other hand, I once heard of a study, some time ago, which suggested employees in Buffalo were 25% more likely to call in sick on a Monday following a Bills loss versus a win, so maybe the results would generalize more than I think. Of course, there's only one way to find out - research, anyone?
