Today is the biggest unofficial holiday of the year, with 1.5 million people calling in sick as a result of the Super Bowl. And another 4.4 million people will show up late for work today according to a 2008 survey by The Workforce Institute at Kronos Inc. The findings show that the Monday following the Super Bowl is a less productive day overall. The majority of people calling in sick are men aged 18 to 34.

I guess it’s hard to come to work if 1) your a Ravens fan and stayed up all night partying or 2) a 49ers fan and stayed up all night crying.

I know if my Dallas Cowboy’s had been in the Super Bowl yesterday, win or lose, you can beat your a$$ I wouldn’t be at work today.

Well it has come to my attention that a petition to make the Monday following the Super Bowl a national holiday is on its way to the White House. The petition Fantasy Football already has 9,562 signatures and needs an additional 90,000 to reach Obama’s desk.
