The year after I moved into an apartment on my own, I got quite ill with the flu, which turned into pneumonia. My mother said she knew I was really sick when I had her take me to the ER just before the start of the Michigan - Ohio State football game.

How much of these ER visits are induced by the games? Not sure the post-game influx is due to a wait, so much as to the increase in stress during the game. The study needs to account for that factor.
