It's about damn time. I doubt you'll find many people who will argue with having the day after the Super Bowl off...

Two Democratic lawmakers are seeking to remove Columbus Day as an official holiday in Tennessee in favor of a different day of celebration: the day after the Super Bowl.

Rep. Joe Towns Jr. (D—Memphis) and Sen. London Lamar (D—Memphis) introduced a bill this week that would designate the first Monday after the Super Bowl as a legal holiday while removing the official recognition of Columbus Day.

The bill would delete the language in the current Tennessee Code Annotated that designates “the second Monday in October, known as ‘Columbus Day,’” as a holiday while inserting “the first Monday after the Super Bowl,” as a new holiday, known as “Super Bowl Monday” in the bill text.

It’s dumb to get rid of Columbus Day. But adding the extra holiday is a good idea

What kind of immature, governing, elected person would even consider bringing this up for adult conversation? "The people need a day off of working hard, after watching a TV show on Sunday night. Who's with me?"

It's just tax dollars for govt employees to have yet another day off. No big deal
