Glorious idea :o)  I took it easy last night, but the year the Giants won the Superbowl, you couldn’t have carried me into work!

My husband declared last night that Super Bowl Sunday should be a holiday and Monday should be a holiday for mourning/rejoicing.

@hotchildinthecity SAME HERE!!!! re: the Giants, I am their no. 1 fan 😉

I think I am just going to start requesting the Monday after Superbowl off in advance. Yep, seems like a good time for a yearly 3-day “vacation” LOL

@Krissy: You can’t be their number one fan, because that’s me LoL

The year the Giants won, I actually did take the day off of work.  Considering that I got to the bar at 11am and ending the evening by hugging random people on the street in sheer excitement (and drunkeness), that was probably the best choice ;o)

Ha, well, I do not agree. I’m not into sports at all, and I didn’t even watch the Super Bowl. Neither did my husband. Today was just a regular Monday for us, and if we were to add another national holiday, I wouldn’t want it to be about sports. I don’t think it’s necessary to need a day of reflection over a football game. Just sayin’.

We were saying how they should move the Superbowl to a Saturday night. Why does it need to be a Sunday? If it was Saturday, you could party and not have to call in sick the next day to sleep!

A coworker told me that the day AFTER super bowl is the #2 “sick day” in the US. Right behind Jan 1

I don’t think it should be a holiday. It’s just a game. If people want to drink themselves into a stupor, or stay up all night on a sunday celebrating or mourning, that’s their business. Take the day off, or suck it up and go to work! It’s just a game.

Um all I can say is that I don’t give a rat’s ass about football but I feel like crap today and wish I had it off. Everyone else seems to care about it so I get dragged to parties and there’s food and beer everywhere. Blech. If today was a holiday I could be napping on my couch which is really all I want to be doing right now.

I am 100% for Super Bowl Monday. I don’t actively celebrate President’s Day or Columbus Day, but they are holidays. At least I’d have a holdiay not in the last quarter of the year I’d actually have a reason to be off from school or work.

Every Monday should be a holiday! Superbowl Monday would be pretty awesome, especially for those of us who don’t do heavy celebrating.

Well, on one hand, I hate football. So no.

But on the other hand, I love days off. So yes.
