The Monday After

The Monday after the Super Bowl.  I've seen a lot of posts over the last couple of days saying this should be a holiday.  It doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to have such a huge event late in the evening on a Sunday.  Why not Super Bowl Saturday?

I realize 40+ years of tradition are hard to break.  But shouldn't practicality figure in somewhere?  Monday is a work day for the majority of the country.  Why not make the occasion easier for that majority?  The fact is, parties and partaking are part of the Super Bowl.  Do we really want that many hung over people driving in to work on Monday morning?

And it wouldn't just be for the benefit of the individual.  Can you imagine the increase in business for bars and restaurants if patrons didn't have to get up early the next morning?  That would be a benefit not only for the owners, but for the waitstaff with increased tips.  It would spread the bounty.

So I challenge the NFL and the networks to change the tradition.  Changing it to a Saturday would be a win for everybody!
