It only makes sense to make the Monday after the Super Bowl a holiday. In fact, there's a petition started by football fans on the White House's site aiming to do just that.
Started by 4for4.com, a fantasy football site, in an obvious quest for publicity (which worked, obviously), the petition asks the administration of President Barack Obama to make the Monday after the Super Bowl a holiday. The petition's goal is to get 100,000 signatures.
Now here's a political movement we should all be able to get behind.
The petition had less than 100 signatures by noon Eastern time on Thursday, so there's a long way to go to reach the goal. And, really, there's no chance of this ever coming to pass even if there's a million signatures. It's not like someone doesn't try something like this every year to get attention. But it doesn't mean it's not a beautiful idea.
And if by some miracle this does work, we can then start working on getting the first week of the NCAA Tournament off.
