Superbowl Monday

We as a country need to come together and pass a bill stating that Superbowl Monday will now be recognized as a national holiday.

How many people watch the Superbowl? 10 kajillion? Well, I'd venture to guess that 90% of those who watch the Superbowl would like to have the day after off. The day off would allow everyone to beable to enjoy the Superbowl more because they wouldn't have to worry about getting up for work the next day, the drive home after the party has ended or the inevidable hangover all day at work.

We could also use this holiday to celebrate sports and thier place in American History. Just like Christmas is filled with Christmas Joy and Thanksgiving is filled with turkey, Superbowl Monday could be filled with sports and the activity of sports. They say everyone's too fat these days, well here's a holiday which promotes getting up off the couch and onto a field.

Ok some critics say we already have too many holidays, we don't need any more. Ok, fine. Get rid of Columbus day. It's a horse shit holiday anyway. Hell, Columbus didn't even discover America. All he did was take a wrong turn on the way to India. Let's get rid of a holiday that makes no sense and replace it with Superbowl Monday a holiday that makes perfect sense.

I encourage everyone to contact their congressional representative, local newspaper, TV stations and that guy who's always yelling shit on the corner and get the word out. Superbowl Monday the newest national holiday!!!
