Out of the Blue

I've never been a huge fan of the two-week gap before the Super Bowl, I think the change in schedule is one of thing things that leads to sloppy play as teams lose their normal rhythm. Another thing that bothers me is how late the game runs, since much partying is done in conjunction with the game. So I'm thinking the solution to the latter problem may be in the former complaint: If they are going to wait an extra week for the game, why not have it on Saturday night, rather than Sunday? Moving the game up a day wouldn't harm preparation, as the teams would still have 13 days to prepare, but it would give partiers a Sunday to recover before resuming the work week, and a better excuse to allow youngsters to stay yup late to watch with no school the next day. I'm guessing this could never happen, if for no other reason than the term "Super Bowl Sunday" is almost a brand at this point, but I think playing the game today rather than tomorrow would be a move in the right direction.

I've been advocating a Saturday Night SUPER BOWL for years.
And have an 8:00 PM(or even better 9:00 PM) kick off as well.
It's just riduclous to have the game on a Sunday Night. But it's not about the fans--it's about revenue.
