if you need the day off............take a personal day. I've done it before and will again this year.

we don't need anymore "Federal Holidays".


It's not always easy just to take a personal day when you want to. It depends on the industry, especially during the Superbowl.

It is more of a Holiday than anything. I end up having to be super careful on which superbowl party I decide to attend because most are just Holiday parties and nobody watches the superbowl. At certain places people think I'm being anti-social because I actually sit down and watch the game.

moving it to Saturday is more likely to happen than another holiday...and to be honest, understanding that Sunday is football day traditionally...moving the Superbowl to Saturday makes a whole lot of sense.


oh...and while we are at it...move the damn Pro Bowl back to after the Superbowl!

What about all of the people who have to work during the super bowl? That should be the real federal holiday, right?


But who would bring me my pizza? :(

Nfl should just change the time IMO. Friday night, Saturday anytime or earlier on Sunday. All of those are better for most of working America.

I guess you' right, with the national days i must be around 45 / year


I'm honestly a bit jealous sometimes. Multi-faceted discussion, but Europe seems to have a better angle on the work/life balance thing than the US.
