Should the Super Bowl be a national holiday?
The GOP Debate undercard made sure to give the people what they want on Wednesday night. Butted up against NBA, NHL and World Series coverage, the Elephants in the room decided to lean on a cash cow in order to stir the pot: the NFL. More pointedly, they discussed whether the day after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday.
Just hard-hitting action from the GOP. Love all the trash talk. Jindal must not realize the Saints suck; he’s just living in the afterglow of Drew Brees’ halcyon years. And then there’s Santorum just slangin’ the big D, waving his Terrible Towel all over the place. Gotta love when these cats flip from BSing to “on a serious note.” Nothing more serious than grown men playing a child’s game.
But on a serious note … I’ve had this discussion about a billion times now and there’s only one correct answer: yes. Super Bowl Monday, Seis de Mayo, Fifth of July, the
second round of March Madness – they’re all holidays that need to be happen, and needed to happen yesterday. American productivity is absolutely zero on those days; might as well take them off.
Oh yeah, and election day. That might be a good one too. Ya know, just in case we really want to make it as easy as possible for people to hit the polls.
