Teen Petitions To Have The Super Bowl On Saturday


A New York teen's petition to move the Super Bowl to Saturday is going viral.

Over 30-thousand people have signed the Change-dot-org petition that Frank Ruggeri started. The 16-year-old suggested the idea to his parents.

Because of the timing of the game, millions of Americans call out sick on the day after the Super Bowl. Analysts claim the big game costs employers nearly three-billion-dollars. Some have proposed making the Monday following the Super Bowl a national holiday.

Sundays became the traditional day for professional football after Congress passed a law in 1961, protecting college and high school games from being overshadowed.
