There seems to be a growing push to try and make the day after SuperBowl Sunday a holiday. Pretty interesting idea really. The Super Bowl is always on a sunday. Usually around the end of January and the beginning of February.
The point, I believe, is that many football fans go out or congregate to drink, eat, and otherwise have a good time. As a result, many are hungover or just otherwise tired the day after. And we have to go to work. Unless that is, we make SuperBowl Monday a holiday. As they kindly point out on the website, it would be the first atheletic holiday. Sounds like a pretty good idea to me. I could always use another day off work.
