A lot of people on the East Coast stay up past their bed time to watch the Super Bowl. It has a 6:30 kick off and with the extra commercials and elongated half time show it runs an hour to 90 minutes longer than a typical 3 hour game meaning it will end close to 11PM on the East coast and 8 on the West. 47.1 percent of Americans live in EST. 29% in Central. 6.7% in Mountain and 16% in PST or the West coast.
In a recent survey an estimated 16.1 million employees are likely to miss work on the Monday after the Super Bowl. Of those missing the day, about 8.8 million have been pre-approved for the day off. But not everyone’s so ethical, with about 7.3 million workers planning to call in sick.
And some folks don’t know what they’ll do, with 10.2 million saying they’ll decide their Super Bowl Monday plan either Sunday night or Monday morning, which means the numbers could be much higher.
53% are actually worried about calling in sick because their employer may require a doctor’s note or a negative COVID-19 test before they return to the office.
Well, 64% of folks think the game should be moved to the night before President’s Day in mid-February so they will have the Monday after the game off.
Another 39% say Super Bowl Monday should be a National holiday
