Re: Around the NFL: Super Bowl Thread

Super Bowl should not be on Saturday...Super Bowl Sunday is a tradition. The answer to this problem is to get the Super Bowl to Presidents Day Weekend...that way kids are off from school and a large percentage of the workforce has Monday off. That will be one of the benefits of the 18 game regular season that most people otherwise don't want.

You are correct. It is NOT IMPORTANT AT ALL to get a paid day off when it is time to open a new calendar.

Here is the fundamental difference:
New Year's Day IS a Holiday already

Super Bowl Monday is NOT a Holiday already.
To create a Federal Holiday - - or to get rid of one as the Congress did with the creation of President's Day - - requires legislation.

There is going to have to be a TON of pressure on Congress to get rid of a Holiday called New Year's Day because some folks will be upset about losing that Holiday. The fact of its existence makes it difficult for a Congressthing to start a campaign to take it away from folks.

It will take an equal amount of pressure on Congress to create a new Federal Holiday. And as soon as someone starts to do that, there will be competition from various other "interest groups" who would like a day to honor them or one of their heroes/heroines.

If you think you have a winning argument here vis a vis New Year's Day, it will only cost you 44-cents to mail it to your Congressman. Me, I have better things to do...

There are plenty of other countries who have many more holidays than we do. We need more holidays. Forget Super Bowl Monday - we need Super Bowl Week. And Arbor Week, I might add, as well as Groundhog Week.

Ahhh, maybe there is some benefit to age. Since I have retired, every day is like Saturday (except Sunday--but then Sunday is followed by Saturday). Guys, I highly recommend retirement. I watched more guilt free football this year than ever! No school, no work, that's how I roll!
