Every one watches the superbowl, it is the most watched televised event of the entire year. Not only that bt every one watches it to see the comercials, i mean how meny shows do you watch, that you actually enjoy the comercials? And it is the 2nd most food consumption day of the year behind thanksgiving, every year my parents stock up on barbeque, beer, and soda. And the only sporting event where people have parties to watch the game, no other sports have parties but every one has gone to a superbowl party at one point or another in their life.

So back to the question, should it be considered a holiday? like superbowl weekend ( a 3 day weekend eighter on friday to get ready for the bowl, or on monday to take a break after it is all done [or maybe both])

People have plenty of parties for other events. Take the world cup final for instance. Mad parties for the finalists of that competition.

No it shouldn't be a holiday. Though I suppose my opinion isn't that valid since I'm Scottish.

Football's cool, but hockey is 1000x better. Save your parties for the stanley cup finals.

I say no to the holiday, although I would love to have the day off. I've gotta go to work here in a few minutes, so I'm gunna miss the second half. I look forward to the big game all year long.

No, I hate football.

Maybe its because i'm Canadian, but correct if i'm wrong, the hockey playoffs are pretty popular.

Either way, i'm not a huge sports fan to begin with, but football sucks and it shouldn't be a national holiday.

its on a sunday. nobody works anyway.


I worked...

It was dead as hell though we had like a grand total of 6 customers probably the time i was there...

No the super bowl should not be a holiday... maybe an observance, if it gets us off of school for a day.

there should be another option in the poll stating "i dont live in the USA so my opinion is null and void about whether or not there should be a national holiday in another country."

Hockey is the fourth most popular sport in the United States so I wouldnt really call the playoffs "pretty popular" compared to basketball, baseball, and football.

i voted yes.

i also think it should be mandatory for everyone to be finished with work before game time. that way i dont have to worry about getting off work.

The day after the superbowl should be a holiday; it's the day that American businesses lose the most money due to employee absences (besides holidays).

Actually people still work on Super Bowl. Both my brothers ended up working today and one of them missed the entire thing.

And my dumbass teacher assigned homework on how we have to write about the commercials.

I like pro football. A lot. But this idea is pretty lame.

If it was, where would you get your pizzas, snacks, beer, etc?

No.

as long as fast food restraunts, pizza places stay open, i vote yes. and for that compaison for hockey... its a good sport but.... Men with sticks to use to hit people with= pussies. Men that use all of their body and strength to knock the **** out of the other guy= A real man

Nah. You already get the sunday off anyway so whats the point?

Whats funny is when the Yankees win the World Series, New York City has a huge parade and it really doesnt matter if you go to school or not.

Technically, the world cup is the most watched televised event. But then, it's not an annual kind of thing so....

I honestly didn't know sports were supposed to be commercialized beyond belief.

Just me though.

Ironic how the people watching a sport are sitting on their asses getting fat.

Nor is it only for one sport.

It might not that much sence since the game is played on Sunday anyway. It would only benefit a few people so is not worth it
