Lilly Rockwell | 2/28/2014

The Jacksonville affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, called HabiJax, foreclosed on 50 homeowners last year, following 33 in 2012 — more than the previous six years combined. Many HabiJax homeowners were not able to overcome job losses, medical expenses or tax and insurance increases that increased their housing outlays.

  • The game itself (go team!)
  • Partying with friends (and the food + drink)
  • Watching commercials or halftime
  • Nothing, not into it
