ESPN just posted the results of a poll asking people if they’d rather see the Super Bowl played on Sunday, like it’s always been . . . or moved to Saturday. And the verdict is . . . the Move it to Saturday!
57% of people say they’d prefer the Super Bowl to be held on Saturday.
Interestingly enough, the vote was split almost perfectly down the center of the country. Virtually every state in the Eastern and Central time zones said Saturday, virtually every state in Mountain and Pacific said Sunday.
And that makes sense, timing-wise . . . since the game is over earlier in the night in the Mountain and Pacific areas, there’s more time to recover, sober up, and still get a full night of sleep. The other time zones don’t have that luxury.
