So they're banging the drum pretty loudly here in Indiana to have the day after the Super Bowl declared a holiday. The national media have picked up on the story as well and are calling for a federal holiday.
For the Super Bowl.
ESPN is currently running a front-page poll that has about 57% "yes" votes for creating a Super Bowl holiday, which means that among both the national media and the general public the idea of honoring the day after a football game with a federal holiday enjoys about as much support (if not more, depending on location) as Martin Luther King Day.
Oh well, we already know how the White House feels about designating more federal holidays. Unless…..no, I'm sure they don't have a problem with MLK. Their objections are certainly general in nature and apply to all holidays equally.
