BottleKeeper Cares started this petition to United States Congress

Do you know what's worse than a rattlesnake bite? Chasing 8,000 calories worth of bean dip with 9 drinks while watching the Big Game with your friends, then having to get up the next day and go to work. I mean, pretty sure we'd opt for the snake bite.

But, there is good news, there is hope. Based on the fact that we live in a democracy and have voting rights 'n stuff, we get to gather under the cause of liberty and petition the folks in Congress to make a critical change -- make the heartburn inducing Monday after the Big Game a national holiday. That's right. Close the office, close the banks, no mail delivery. I mean, let's be honest, you're not getting off the couch to go to the bank or mailbox anyways. 

You want some icing on the hangover cake?! This issue has large and very positive economic impacts too. According to our homies at MarketWatch.com, an estimated 17 million people miss work on the Monday after the Big Game, costing employers up to $4.4 billion in lost productivity. If Monday were a national holiday, those companies wouldn't be open and, therefore, wouldn't be allowed to be productive -- so they wouldn't lose anything in productivity! That's right, we just solved a $4.4 billion productivity issue. Boom.

So, c’mon, do your future self a solid and sign this petition. Only then can we enact this truly impactful change, having lasting personal and economic impacts for generations to come.
