What is your plan for Super Sunday? Are wings involved? What about brats or hot dogs or burgers or a massive sub sandwich? Chips and dips for all.
What about alcohol?
While the game itself is guaranteed to run longer than four hours, millions across the country are not going to stop drinking at halftime … or at the final whistle … or really at all that day.
Especially those fans in San Francisco and Baltimore, where folks will either be drinking in ecstasy or depression.
And no one will be showing up to work on Monday.
So, we might as well all just take the day off anyways, right?
According to TLNT, an estimated $820 million dollars worth of productivity is lost and more than 1.5 million sick days are taken on the Monday following Super Bowl Sunday.
Thus, a petition has been taken up online to try to get the day after the Super Bowl declared an official national holiday. When online petitioning was made available in just 2011, only 5,000 signatures were needed in order to garner an official White House response.
The online signatures poured in, so much so that in very little time the minimum was raised to a whopping 100,000.
Well, America, if you want to take Super Bowl Monday off next month, you had better get on that petition. We are a country of action — sometimes it’s just for a somewhat ridiculous cause.
