Teen petitions NFL to move the Super Bowl to SaturdayPosted: Updated:
A 16-year-old from upstate New York is the latest person calling for a change to Super Bowl Sunday. He wants it on Saturday!
Frankie Ruggeri's reason is simple - who wants to get up on Monday morning after such a late night watching the big game?
So he started an online petition to get others behind the idea. "He was persistent, very persistent, and he really believed it was a good cause. So I said, 'Frankie, go for it. Do what you gotta do,’" says Frankie’s father Frank. "I'd like for the Super Bowl to be on Saturdays because schools are not open the next day, no school the next morning, no work. Might as well make it Saturday," says Frankie.
So far, more than 7,500 people have signed Frankie's petition.
