Tonight is going to be an exciting night. Elite football playing, special top-tier commercials, and, for many, a large party to go to. Whether you’re going to your friend’s house, a sports bar, or even hosting a party yourself, there’s a lot of preparation to do. But it’ll be worth it in the end; a national event will be enjoyed, and it’ll be a talking point for the next week or so.
Yet a disturbing want has cropped up among these sports fans. Due to the level of intoxication and sleeplessness that people are going to endure to enjoy the Super Bowl, they are pushing for a national holiday. You know, to recover. From partying. That’s hard work, all right.
People in support of that idea: It’s not going to happen. Use some self control, darn it. Going to drink? Keep it under control. Going to stay up into the wee hours? Take some power naps throughout the day if you can, or try and maximize your sleep time.
The good news, holiday hopeful, is that a lot of people are going to watch the game. Heck, Super Bowl XL is the second most-watched television event in history. I’m pretty sure that everyone’s going to try and take it easy tomorrow.
You don’t need a whole day off to recuperate from a sporting event. Unless you’re a player, of course.
