MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A fantasy football group believes the Monday following the Super Bowl should be considered a national holiday — and now it’s petitioning the White House to make it so.

4for4.com Fantasy Football argues that by making that Monday a national holiday, “the Obama Administration can promote camaraderie among the American people, keep the streets safer for our children on Sunday night and Monday morning, promote a productive workplace when work resumes on Tuesday, and honor the most popular event in modern American culture.”

In 2012, an estimated 111 million American citizens watched the Super Bowl, making it the most-viewed television broadcast in history and one of the largest location-independent gatherings of American people to date.
