Super Bowl babies — yes, they actually exist. With the Super Bowl being the most-watched TV program, viewed by over 100 million people each year, it should make sense that there’s a boom in births nine months later. (Think about it: After your team gets lucky, then you may get lucky, too.) And, considering the annual championship game of the National Football League typically takes place more than halfway through the winter season, aka the beginning of February, figuring out the astrological sign for Super Bowl babies is quite simple.
Granted, there is another special occasion in early February that's worthy of a similar celebration: Valentine's Day. The Super Bowl takes place the first Sunday in February, while Valentine’s Day is on February 14, so the two events always happen within two weeks of each other. So Super Bowl babies (aka SBBs) and Valentine’s Day babies (VDBs) can definitely overlap — but one does not negate the existence of the other.
So, What Astrological Sign Do Super Bowl Babies Have?
For the record, I'm not trying to make this all about "the birds and the bees" here, but I have to explain it y'all somehow. According to AmericanPregnancy.org, ovulation can be calculated by starting with the first day of the last menstrual period or by calculating 12-16 days from the next expected period. Also, the majority of women typically ovulate anywhere in between Day 11 and Day 21. Great, moving right along.
Let's just say the San Francisco 49ers win the big game on Feb. 2, 2020. (This is not a prediction, this is merely an example.) If a 49ers superfan happens to be ovulating during this time and decides to have some celebratory intercourse with their SO, chances are, if they were to conceive, their SBB would be born approximately around the second week of November. That means those children are typically born under the sign of... smoldering Scorpio.
Ironically, contrary to the many happy-go-lucky football festivities, Scorpios aren't exactly the most "spirited." In fact, their exterior is quite timid and mysterious — but, at the same time, their emotions are passionate and incredibly intense. (This isn't surprising, considering their ruling planets, Mars and Pluto. Mars is assertive and warrior-like, while Pluto is undercover AF, as it is hidden in the shadowy depths.) So, come to think of it, Scorpio does sort of go hand-in-hand with the raw Super Bowl obsession and strategic game plan. Fascinating.
