Voltaire once said, “Common sense is not so common.” Ralph Waldo Emerson gave it to us like this, “Common sense is genius dressed up in work clothes.” Then the homie James Madison broke it down so that it would forever be broken when he said, “Philosophy is common sense with big words.”
Well playas…I don’t know any big words but I’ve got plenty of common sense and a philosophy on why the Super Bowl should be played on Saturday instead of Sunday! Put your ears and eyes on this. The phenomenon known as Friday Night Lights is better known as high school football in America. Saturdays have been reserved for college football and the famous art of all day tailgatin’. Therefore, when professional football became a viable sport in this country it was played on Sundays.You do realize that college football came way before pro football, right?
Typically the NFL plays it’s games at 1:00 and 4:15pm on Sunday afternoons. There is also a prime time game on Sunday known as Sunday Night Football or Sunday Night in America is what they’re callin’ it now. The weekend is capped off with the biggest game of the week or the football spectacular known as Monday Night Football.
In more recent years with the institution of the NFL network some games have been played on Thursdays startin’ on Thanksgiving but in 2012 they completely bum rushed the joint and Thursday games have become a staple. Why does the NFL choose to do it this way? Ratings playboy! It’s all about the bottom line; paper, scrilla, deniro or as we call it around my way, good old fashioned bread! So if that is the case why is the Super Bowl still bein’ played on Sunday?
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Over the years the Big Game has become an unofficial national holiday! It’s the most watched television event in the United States and probably the most watched event in the world. Everybody and their momma’s momma, Ms. Jackson, is either hostin’ a Super Bowl party or goin’ to one.
The only problem that cats run into is that the game doesn’t start until 6:30pm and the halftime show is extremely long. This year boyz can’t wait to post up because Lady GaGa is performin’ so you already know. Combine that with a party already filled with alcohol, food and friends and the night can get away from you real quick. So what typically happens? People start unwillingly leavin’ the joint at halftime because they either have to go to work the next mornin’, their kids have to go to school or both. That completely destroys the evenin’ and your buzz if you’re a drinker!
If it really is about the bread and ratings, why not have the joint on Saturday night playa? I know the tradition has been to have it on Sunday but what’s wrong with Super Bowl Saturday? Let’s help the American economy all the way around! Don’t just think about the NFL and it’s advertisers. Let everybody get in on the action by allowin’ the restaurants, bars, clubs and hotels an opportunity to make more bread too. I know that they’re gettin’ paid now but think about how much more paper could be generated if the game was on Saturday! Boyz could make an entire weekend out of it!
Let me put it where the goats can get it. Movin’ the game up just one day gives everybody else the opportunity to get their scratch too and more people will watch the game in it’s entirety. The parties would last longer and the American workforce would be more productive on Monday mornin’ because less people would call in sick. Cuz you already know boyz have been practicin’ their Monday mornin’ Super Bowl post-game cough since last week. I hear you laughin’ because you’ve been practicin’ your “I’m sick speech” too! You’ve been standin’ in the mirror like you’re rehearsin’ an Easter speech.
There’s no rule that says that the game has to be played on Sunday so why keep doin’ it? I know you’ll argue tradition but I’ll argue bread trumps tradition. Just ask all of the college football programs that have recently destroyed 100 year old rivalries by changin’ conferences for the sake of bakin’ bread. I don’t agree with it but I understand duns gotta get paid.
When Oklahoma and Nebraska or Texas and Texas A&M can stop playin’ each other because it’s too much money to pass up in the Big Ten and SEC all bets were off. The Super Bowl can be played on Saturday. Trust me! The Texas vs Texas A&M game had been played every year since 1894 and the Oklahoma/Nebraska joint was first played in 1912! If these cats can change don’t tell me the NFL can’t, especially if more bread is on the table!
They’re playin’ NFL games on Thursdays and Mondays already and after the college football season is over they take over Saturdays too. We just watched the divisional playoffs held on Saturday a few weeks ago. So why not hold the biggest game of the year on Saturday so we all can get it in? Otherwise, Joe’s are goin’ to keep callin’ off on Monday and that ain’t good for the American economy pimpin’!
Not only am I lookin’ out for your right to get it in but I’m lookin’ out for the economy too! Plus you already know some idiot is gonna get fired on Monday mornin’ for smellin’ like weed and alcohol because he went on and jumped in head first because he didn’t have a “No” man in his camp. Stop me when I start lyin’ bruh!
