Pennsylvanians In A Better Mood AFTER Super Bowl XLV

Super Bowl XLV Mood Infographic
You know that the Super Bowl is a big deal in America when 60,000 plus people vote on whether or not they liked the half time show

So what if you could visualize the relationship between geography, mood and Super Bowl XLV? We got curious about this and averaged the daily mood ratings of anonymous Mood 24/7 users with Pennsylvania area codes, on both the day before and the day after the Super Bowl. Based on the 7% increase in mood in the state of Pennsylvania, over that time frame, we came to the conclusion that the Pittsburgh Steelers won the game… Hooray, Pittsburgh!

The actual results of the game differed from our conclusion, however, as we came to find out that the Green Bay Packers bested the Pittsburgh Steelers on Super Bowl Sunday, by the score of 31-25.

This begs the question, do the positive or negative outcomes of major sporting events really have an impact on our moods?
