Battling the Super Bowl Slump

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- The day after the Super Bowl football fans across the nation fought the urge to call in sick or battle their way through the work day.  The Monday after the big game is generally known as one of the most unproductive work days of the year.  And with the Ravens winning the game, fans on Delmarva were up into the early morning hours celebrating. 

Seeing the confetti rain down on Ray Lewis and the Ravens was a sight many in Maryland and on Delmarva couldn't wait to see.  But with the game ending late, and the partying after the win, it was the recipe for a bit of a rough Monday morning.

"Today is hangover day in Maryland.  Without a doubt," said Lillian Saldana of Salisbury.

Saldana is a huge Ravens fan and attended a Super Bowl party Sunday night and like many others, was up bright and early and at work Monday morning.

"Running on adrenaline.  Little tired.  You know, got to bed late, got up early.  Here I am at 8 o'clock in the morning," said Saldana.

Nathan Johnston of Salisbury is not a Ravens fan but could not pass up a chance to watch a great finish to the Super Bowl.  And fortunately for him, he may have the perfect job to cure any big game hangover he may have had.

"Stayed up way too late especially with having to open up the coffee shop in the morning but luckily I have some coffee so it's getting me through," said Johnston.

Johnston said business was a little slow on Monday and he was not going to complain.

"I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to keep up with it.  But you know, business will definitely be better tomorrow."

Whether these fans were running on coffee of adrenaline to get through the day, they both agreed that staying up late to watch every minute of the game was well worth it.
