A Texas lawmaker is proposing the day after the Super Bowl be a statewide holiday. YES!
It's estimated that about 17 million Americans catch "Super Bowl Fever" and call in sick to work Monday after Super Bowl Sunday. About 24% (1 in 4 for those of you that struggle w math) are all for 'Super Day' ( I have named it) the day after the Super bowl to be declared a national day off. Actual data shows that Americans eat as much (I think way more) on Super bowl Sunday as they do on Thanksgiving.
If people do make it into work, many spend a big chunk of their on-the-job time re-watching popular commercials and plays from the game.
