Super Bowl 2022: People aren’t happy after learning the Super Bowl will take place on Valentine’s Day weekend
This February may not live up to its moniker as Love Month, as Super Bowl 56 will take place the weekend before Valentine’s Day, scaring people in love.
Often, sports fanatics and romantics can easily separate their two lovers during the second month of the year, as football confrontations usually take place at the beginning of the month and Valentine’s Day is celebrated every year on February 14.
This year, however, will be the latest big game ever played, as it’s officially scheduled for Sunday, February 13 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California, which means for many, it’s going to clash with an unofficial game . Valentine’s weekend.
The overlap has upset the pair, with many on TikTok sharing their distress over the scheduling conflict and questioning what it might mean for their Valentine’s Day plans.
“I think with whoever decided that Super Bowl Sunday is Valentine’s Day weekend because they’re single,” a woman named Elena, who goes by the username @elenaa_l10, wrote on TikTok: “What happened? thing?”
In another video by Ava, who goes by the username @definetlynotava8, she wrote: “To the guy who moved the Super Bowl to Valentine’s weekend…I don’t think you understand how much you ruined.”
“I personally don’t like what you do,” she wrote in the clip’s caption, which saw her roll her eyes.
The overlap has also sparked some of the memes on the app, with many couples showing their reactions to discovering that the Super Bowl may take precedence over Valentine’s Day.
Others said the overlap would be a “major test of priorities” after a woman claimed she “deliberately” made her Valentine’s Day plans on Super Bowl Sunday.
While many are jokingly frustrated by the impact of football games on romantic holiday weekends, one woman named Rebecca (username @reveeccaaxxo) urged other women to help her come up with a solution.
“Ladies, Valentine’s Day and the Super Bowl are on the same weekend, what are we doing???” she captioned the clip on the app.
In response, viewers agreed that something had to be done, with one person writing: “Gosh, we need to fix this ASAP!” To which Rebecca jokingly responded: “How are we going to spend that weekend?”
“Go to the drawing board!” someone else wrote.
The change marks the first time since 2003 that the Super Bowl has not been played on the first Sunday in February, according to The Sports News, as a result of the NFL’s expanded schedule. The last Super Bowl was on February 7.
