Watching Superbowl May Increase Risk of Heart Attacks

…and not just for Patriot fans.

After watching New England’s shocking loss to the Giant’s in last nights Superbowl (and watching the reactions of the people watching the game) I was reminded of a recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine that suggests watching exciting sporting events can increase the risk of heart attack.

I haven’t seen any reports (yet) of anyone having a cardiac arrest after Manning’s touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds left in the game.
