Should the Super Bowl Move to Saturday?
Over the past decade or two, the Super Bowl has become somewhat of an American holiday. It’s the most watched television event in the world and people love to throw parties for the big game. I’m talking all-day events with food, traditions, games and friends – just like a holiday. Today I asked our Facebook Fans whether or not they would be in favorite of moving the Super Bowl to Saturday instead of Sunday.
Holding the Super Bowl on Sunday night is part of the traditions that we all love. But for people living on the east coast (and those of you in Europe) it can be tough to party all day, watch the Super Bowl at night and then make it to work the next morning on time. That’s what prompted my question on Facebook. I wanted to know how people felt about moving the game to Saturday. Would you sacrifice the football traditions for a more convenient weekend and an extra day of rest?
As of writing this, we’ve had 18 replies: 13 yes, 4 no, and 1 don’t care. Let’s take a look at some of the comments:
“Its super bowl Sunday… its tradition… but since most “football fans” don’t even watch the game and talk more about commercials then why not sell out a little bit more… Ruined the draft, Pro Bowl is now a bigger joke (didn’t know that was possible), now top it off with the super bowl…”
“YES! Monday’s suck…..Superbowl Saturday works for me. ”
“Yes!!! In Europe Super Bowl ends at 5:00 a.m. (Monday!!!), so of course YES!!!”
“For, unless we can declare it a national holiday and have the following Monday off.”
“Yes – then you wouldn’t have to worry about getting up for work the next morning, and since it’s after the college games end, it won’t interfere.”
“No way! Superbowl SUNDAY!!”
