    why do they put superbowl on a sunday night, not a saturday  we could have parties and enjoy the event alot more, but i guess the only thing is ratings and they assume more will be at home on  a sunday night?

    would love a good reason

    I have been talking about this exact thing all week. I think it is so stupid to have it on Sunday night. 
  3. Best reason is so we have a  reason to call in sick monday morning :)

    Well why does the week start on Monday instead of Tuesday I think that it would be a better day to start anyway.

    I have been asking that exact same question for years - makes no sense to me.

    They want to get the extra day of hotel rooms in the host city.

    I think Al's right too, that's the only reason that makes sense.
