Explain To Me Again Why Today Isn’t A Holiday?

JFG Nation, I’m exhausted. Heck of a game yesterday, and I have to go to work now. WTF. How is the day after the Super Bowl not a National holiday? Across the nation, men and women put in a hard day’s work smoking ribs, making chicken wings, flipping burgers, making pepperoni footballs, buying as many Doritos as the cart would hold, swilling beer, swilling tequila, eating donuts, eating tacos, eating grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches, and destroying bathrooms of those brave souls who hosted a Super Bowl party. Now I have to go generate TPS reports???

I dunno – my body is aching from all the processed meat and sugar I ate yesterday. Someone else talk – you can talk in the comments about a lot of things! Talk about the game – I’d rather read your comments than listen to any talking heads today. Talk about the food you had last night – what Super Bowl party nom noms did you have or make that were particularly energizing and gluttonous? Or talk about these things I found at Wegmans:

Jelly Belly making baking mixes? And only ONE of them uses jelly beans? We’re trending down a dark road, America, where companies, in an attempt to bite into a greater market share, launch new products that make absolutely no sense.

So yeah – sound off in the comments below. I’m going back to stirring my coffee bleary eyed. Talk to you tomorrow.

    I don’t know. Game went into OT, and still was over at 10:30, I was in bed within an hour, generally the same time as every other night. And if you drink too much on a work night, I can’t relate to that.
    Game was good, though I never could get into it. As a Bucs fan, rooting for Atlanta is just not a thing I do. BuEnglandEngland is

    I’m not a football fan and didn’t watch superbowl.

    The Jelly Belly baking mix seems to be a waste of shelf space. They could had aimed for bakery favorite jelly bean mix. I can picture the variety:

    -cinnamon bun
    -apple pie
    -chocolate cake
    -raspberry cookie
    -rainbow cookie
    -fruit tart

    I don’t think it’s wise to create a holiday after a sporting event & especially one that’s declining in popularity.
    I didn’t watch the game. Very few people I know did watch. I’ve seen enough Super Bowls in the 1980s & 1990s to know it’s just a big drawn out farce.
    “Hey are you ready to watch some commercials??”
    “No I hate commercials. What’s wrong with you?”
    “But….it’s Super Bowl ads!”

    Well, having the Superbowl on Saturday would be more convenient to watch, however that will never happen because the networks can get a larger audience on a Sunday evening. Larger audience == more $$$
