    Maybe you could make a thread that day Aussie, and members could make a post in it honoring our Chiefs in some way? Title it Happy 47th Birthday Chiefs! Something like that, I dunno?

    It is, but some call it "Black Monday" the day after Super Bowl too. Reason being, is because so many call in sick to work due to hangovers & such, and risk losing their jobs too for not performing their job related to football! haha

    Most of course don't lose their jobs, but that was the theory behind also calling the Monday after SB "Black Monday"...or so I was told once upon a time, haha.

    Did you know that there is a group pushing for legislation to make the Monday after Super Bowl a legal holiday? There is!! :)

    Here...this article is from a few years back, it mentions legislation related to making the Monday after Super Bowl a legal holiday...specifically due to so many calling in sick, lol. Heck, according to this article...maybe the loss of productivity resulting in huge amounts of money lost is why some call it "Black Monday"...since the original "Black Monday" dates back to the fall of the stock market during the depression era, so much money lost...they estimate $1 billion lost in this article. WOW!!

    Come kickoff time on Super Bowl Sunday, more than 100 million Americans will be tuned in to the festivities. The following morning, however, usually leaves Super Bowl partiers feeling far less festive. And for employers more focused on the bottom line than the final score, that can make for a not-so-Super Monday.

    Nearly 1.4 million adults said they planned to call in “sick?? the day after the Super Bowl, according to a survey commissioned before last year’s game by Kronos, a Mass.-based workforce-management firm. And that doesn’t include time wasted by employees who do show up, only to discuss the game by the water cooler or read the sports section. Even just a few minutes spent on pigskin instead of work can add up.

    Challenger, Gray & Christmas, a global outplacement firm based in Chicago, puts the post-Super Bowl loss of productivity at more than $1 billion. The economic effects of Super Bowl Sunday are well-publicized. For this year’s game, Detroit officials estimate that more than $300 million will be pumped into the local economy -- money spent on hotels, food, transportation, and other attractions. Across the nation, more than 20 million Americans will throw a Super Bowl party, and consumers are expected to spend a total of nearly $5.6 billion on everything from food and drinks to entertainment centers and team apparel.

    Employees may wake up Monday morning with bad hangovers and bloated stomachs, but the employers who have to deal with absentees and low productivity are the ones who may end up with the real headaches.

    Some human-resources experts recommend that bosses take a realistic approach when major (and distracting) events come along, to curry favor with employees, rather than fight the tide and end up looking like the proverbial “bad guy.??

    Marc Kinley, vice president of nMotion Technologies, is taking things a step further. Rather than face the reality of some employees skipping out on work, Kinley is pushing for legislation that would make the Monday following the Super Bowl a national holiday. Kinley, along with three friends, launched SuperBowlMonday.com in August 2005, to petition Congress for the new three-day weekend. “The Super Bowl is truly an American holiday,?? says Kinley, who already gives his employees a half day after the big game. “I don’t know what else could bring so many people together without any boundaries, regardless of religion or ethnic background.??
