Tom Brady scored on the field during Sunday NIght’s Super Bowl. But many others scored off the field later. Trust there will be a Super Bowl baby boom this coming November, if history is any indication.
There’s even a commercial about what happens after sexy time on big game night.
With New England Patriots fans boozing and celebrating, while Atlanta Falcons fans are drowning their sorrow, boozing, and need of a good snuggle, sex is likely to happen on both the winning and losing side.
The NFL even looked into the spike in births in the hometowns of winning teams nine months after the Super Bowl when they created the “Super Bowl Babies” ad.
The “Super Bowl Babies Choir” was a spot on 60-second spot which aired during Super Bowl 50 between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. The choir included 49-year-old Green Bay Packers babies all the way to 1-year-old Seattle Seahawks tots.
“Data suggests 9 months after a Super Bowl victory, winning cities see a rise in births,” the ad claims. “In the end, when our team won, mom and dad looked at each other. One thing led to another that night. Our parents totally had sex after the game, you guys!”
There is evidence that sports victories can cause spikes in birth rates in the city whose team won a big game. Boston saw a baby boom nine months after the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004. In World Cup wins, an increase in births nine months after the big game happen in the cities where the champs played. There was a baby boom in New Orleans after the Saints won the 2010 Super Bowl.
While stats can’t exactly say the day when all these women became pregnant, it helps that November sees a lower birth rate than the rest of the year, says multiple studies. In the case of the baby commercial, all it took was an email to ticket holders looking for babies believed to be conceived on Super Bowl nights past.
