1. How much time should a Super Bowl buy you?
It’s called nostalgia for a reason. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines it as “pleasure and sadness that is caused by remembering something from the past and wishing that you could experience it again”. That kind of sounds like how Eagles fans feel about that Super Bowl victory, huh?
