Study: Rooting for Losing Teams, Makes You Fat

So that explains this lovely Jaguars fan.

I suppose.
Sports fans may be more prone to gorging on food--and putting on the pounds--after their team loses, according to a study. 
According to the Wall Street Journal, "powerless fans may also find themselves losing self-control after a loss, including the ability to say no to a giant plate of nachos." 
The publication cites a study by "Yann Cornil and Pierre Chandon of the European business school" that found that "saturated-fat consumption spikes by 16% for fans after the loss of a beloved NFL team. After a victory, fat consumption goes down by 9%, and overall calorie consumption by 5%." 
That study was published "online in August in Psychological Science, looked at intake data from American households in 2004 and 2005 during the NFL season":
When you look at her hefty right "bingo wing" there, with that horrible mess of Jags related ink, you just wonder: "Could the show Tattoo Nightmares even do ANYTHING with that"

Likely not. And given how inept Shad Khan's non-existent-in-the-north-Florida-wild Jaguars are this year, she's going to be drowning her sorrows in lots of buckets of double-stuff-oreo ice cream!
