Presidents-Kings DayPosted: February 21, 2008
Studies have shown that the Monday after the Super Bowl is the least productive work day of the year in America. That should come as no surprise — the typical SB Monday worker is a partied-out, hung-over, bloated sports freak more concerned with touchdowns, turnovers and Super Bowl pools than deadlines, dollars and decisions. He should be home sleeping if off or watching Sports Center replays, not in the office, at the shop or behind the wheel. On this day, conference calls are for suckers.
So, hear now, the Pigskin Party proposes a solution. A national holiday, Call it Presidents-Kings day, since it falls between the two holidays. Combine them, and then balance it out by adding an extra holiday in the summer when the weather is warmer, the grass greener, and the pool open. Make it the first Monday in August, and call it Dog Day.
Don’t pass up this opportunity. Cast your ballots for the Pigskin Party. Come the first Monday in February 2009, you’ll be glad you did.
