Good News: You May Die This Coming Sunday

File this under "Hump Day Overnight Stupid." Even though it's well beyond stupid.

NEW YORK - For rabid fans of the New York Giants and New England Patriots, this Sunday's Super Bowl won't be just a game. It may be a health hazard. Heart attacks and other cardiac emergencies doubled in Munich, Germany, when that nation's soccer team played in World Cup matches, a new study reports.

Meanwhile, in related news, other studies have shown that there's a 100% chance of dying from death.

These "studies" both amuse and repulse me. Because, let's face it, even if you followed religiously the ten or so "health warnings" issued every single day in the media, it isn't going to save you when you inadvertently step off the curb into the path of an oncoming bus.

Enjoy your life while you have it. What was it someone said in a movie? "Every man dies, not every man really lives."
