The article indicates that American men may be so fanatical about sports that they risk their health rather than miss the game on television, according to a study released in October 2006 at the meeting of the American College of Emergency Physicians in New Orleans. It shows that visits by men to the emergency department increase significantly in the hours following televised sporting events. David Jerrard, associate professor of emergency medicine at the University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore, conducted the study.
