    I'm all for disenfranchising people who sign this petition.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    What really should happen is the NFL moves the game to Saturday, especially with 2 weeks in between the Conference title games and the Super Bowl.

    Super Bowl Saturday just doesn't have the same ring to it though.

    Re: whitehouse.gov petition to make Super Bowl Monday national holiday

    Wouldn't matter for me... Last Monday was a National Holiday, and I still had to show up for work, the same way I will on President's Day, Flag Day, Columbus Day, and Veteran's Day. I am pretty certain the corporate machine would not give me the day off on Super Bowl Monday just to be hung over.

    This Presidency has more to worry about. But I wouldn't put it past him to concentrate on this petition.

    The Army gets Monday off. It is pretty much a national (hungover) holiday for us.

    Re: whitehouse.gov petition to make Super Bowl Monday national holiday

    If the Redskins win the Superbowl it's a holiday for the Federal Employees in DC. At least it was the last time it happened. As a Federal Employee at Rock Island IL I thought maybe we'd have gotten the day off on the Monday after the Bears won it (/sarc).


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Anyone can have that day off if they want it. It's called vacation.

    Haha, me too. No way the business community will recognize an additional holiday.

    Re: whitehouse.gov petition to make Super Bowl Monday national holiday

    Not sure why we can't just remove "Columbus Day" and make Monday following the superbowl a day off

    this is a great idea

    Re: whitehouse.gov petition to make Super Bowl Monday national holiday

    So let me get this straight; somebody was dumb enough to start a petition to make a holiday of a day that honors nothing but those who drank themselves stupid the night before? Well, then why isn't every Friday after "Thirsty Thursday" a national holiday? Hell, even FAC should be a national holiday. This petition has all kinds of fail in it.

    I would much rather just have it on Saturday. They have 12 days to prepare, and nobody plays in both the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl. I know my firm will not grant any new holidays; we get the bare minimum as it is.
