    Do you agree?

    GOP presidential candidate Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) was asked Friday on NBC Sports Radio’s “Dan Patrick Show” if the Monday after the NFL’s Super Bowl should be a holiday.

    “It should be, there’s no productivity whatsoever,” Kasich responded. “I’m going to take that under consideration. Maybe I could get that done in the first 100 days.”

    If the owners get their way with an 18 game season, the Super Bowl will be pushed back to the day before President's Day. Problem solved.

    I agree.

    How about having the Super Bowl on the Sunday of Presidents Day weekend, Monday is already a national holiday?

    Not for people who don't work in government, or at a bank.

    It would just be another government holiday the taxpayers pay for and we still have to work like Columbus Day, MLK Day, Cesar Chavez Day, Veterans Day, etc.. Having the Superbowl on Saturday is a much better idea.

    As much sense as this makes, big business will NEVER allow a new holiday. I work for a Fortune 500 company. You think they are just going to give me an extra day off? Um, no. If anything, they are taking the holidays away from us. How many people work July 4 or Memorial Day now as it has is? Will never happen.

    I guess every day is a Holiday for Congress because there's absolutely no productivity there either.

    Really, this is what the "adult in the room" as he describes himself, feels is important?

    He has already destroyed the finances of his State with his expansion of medicaid due to obamacare, that the next Governor will have to deal with and the taxpayers will be punished for.

    He has said that he would have been better running as a democrat. Maybe Hillary should pick him as her VP.

    Replace Budweiser commercials with weed commercials. We'll all be having avocados on our scrambled eggs the next morning.
