Super Bowl Sunday
The annual championship game of the National Football League has become one of America's most popular events, a veritable holiday when nearly the entire nation pauses to pay attention to its fanfare, spectacle and outcome.
Super Bowl Monday
The idea of making the Super Bowl a national holiday in the U.S. has been raised several times. Some companies, such as Heinz, give their employees the day off on the Monday after the Super Bowl. According to a petition the company is promoting, 16 million people call in sick or just don’t show up the day after the Super Bowl. Heinz is asking supporters to sign a petition at www.smunday.org and the company says if it gets over 100,000 that it will send the petition to Congress.
America's Last Great Campfire
Mark Waller, the National Football League's senior vice president for marketing and sales, calls football “America’s last great campfire.”
He explains: “Imagine you were above the United States on a Sunday, you’d see these incredible glows of stadiums."
