Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Back science enough. Suitable big game special right time to talk. Some numbers would sports columnist Victor Matheson now you go give us a full explanation because we will see you as an economist. But I guess you'll tightly fall granted than that. So I don't know about that some people commie a sports columnist and and on top of that. I do lots of fun things like, I'm the president of the North American association of sports communists. I ended the journal of sports economics law, and I do lots of fun things. Looking at the intersection of sports and economics. So let's talk about the economics of the Super Bowl. You know? It's the biggest cultural event of the year here in America. I mean, it's it's like we have the World Cup every single year. But it's just this one game. And it's become more of a. A thing. It's become more happening. It's not really a sporting event. You think about how many people are going to get together on Super Bowl Sunday or the, and and you know, they're going to eat and they're going to watch the game. And they're going to talk about commercials and all that kind of stuff. But really, they're not even football fans. You know, what they're fan of is conviviality, let's get together and have a little party, you know, let's drink. And so is there any data that lets us know what that day, not not as not as a sports team or not as bringing the game to a city, but that day itself what kind of impact does that have on the nation economically. Well, certainly we know for individual products. It's a huge day. For example, it is the single largest day of consumption of academies in the United States. Well, you gotta have you gotta have guacamole for for the big. Game. So for individual products. Boy, you are really depending on having a good SuperBowl. 'cause it's a long wait for the avocado growers until next Super Bowl. Sunday, avocado Christmas. Chris it's bad day to be a chicken because new digress ties told us the number chicken wings, it consumes also a bad day.
