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. 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 starting 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 being played on Sunday bruh?
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 is either hosting a Super Bowl party or going 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 Beyonce' is performing 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 leaving the party at halftime because they either have to go to work the next morning, their kids have to go to school or both. That completely destroys the evening and your buzz if you're a drinker!
If it really is about the money and ratings why not have the joint on Saturday homeboy? 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 allowing the restaurants, bars, clubs and hotels an opportunity to make more money too. I know they're getting paid now but think about how much bread could be generated if the game was on Saturday! Boyz could make an entire weekend out of it!
Let's keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Moving the game up just one day gives everybody else the opportunity to get their paper 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 morning because less people would call in sick. Cuz you already know boyz have been practicing their Monday morning Super Bowl post-game cough since last week. I hear you laughing because you've been practicing your "I'm sick speech" too! You've been standing in the mirror like you're rehearsing an Easter speech.
There's no rule that says that the game has to be played on Sunday so why keep doing 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 changing conferences for the sake of baking 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 playing each other because it's too much money to pass up in the Big Ten and SEC all bets are off. The Super Bowl can be played on Saturday. Trust me! The Texas vs 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!

Not only am I looking out for your right to get it in but I'm looking out for the economy too! Plus you already know some idiot is gonna get fired on Monday morning for smelling 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!
Holla At Ya Boy!
