The Super Bowl is All about the Liver
According to an article in the Smithsonian, guacamole is the official Super Bowl food. Since avocados may be beneficial to the liver, I want to make the argument that Super Bowl Sunday is a liver holiday. The football is the perfect icon for the liver (the average liver is about the size of a liver) and the liver is sort of the shape and color of a football. Granted, the liver would be a lousy substitute for a football, since it weighs 3 pounds and is not very aerodynamic.
So this Super Bowl, think about your liver as that football is making its way down the field. Enjoy the guacamole, skip the beer, and don't forget to get in a little exercise before the game.
