The Super Bowl should be on a Saturday, not a Sunday. The Monday following the Super Bowl is a very unproductive work day because people are tired from the big game.

If the Super Bowl were on a Saturday, restaurants would be full, there would be more parties, and people could stay up longer enjoying the company of others without having to worry about having to wake up for work, school or other activities. Or if you chose to stay up late, they wouldn't have to go to work or school tired and fear a very unproductive work/school day.

A Saturday Super Bowl would generate more money in the economy and allow more people to enjoy the biggest game in football. Come on, NFL, move that big game to Saturday.
