An New National Holiday

I could not agree more:

When you think about the Super Bowl — it’s hard not to, this week — you have to wonder whether maybe it’s time that we formally recognized it for what it is: a national holiday. Switch the game to Monday (Americans have become conditioned to watching football on Monday night) and make it a three-day weekend. Congress could pass the usual proclamations, the Postal Service could design a commemorative stamp, and the president could issue a pronouncement about what this day means to the American spirit…
