Tight games, crushing defeats...these produce heightened sensory inputs that release adrenaline and increase BP.
The body does not know from good and bad stress--it's all stress.
Then people eat and drink more--and more "bad" things. Two drinks should be the limit, the docs say.
Some other tips:
Watch the game with people you enjoy.
Do some pushups and situps during the breaks (does anyone do this?).
Take a walk at half-time.
Veggies instead of chips.
Keep salt to a minimum.
Forget sodas--high in sodium

All probably good advice--you decide.
