A petition posted Jan. 24 asking for the day off has more than 12,000 signatures so far.
Bragging rights. Chicken wings. Plenty of beer. The Super Bowl is more than just the ultimate football game. It's a holiday in itself, no matter which team (or commercials) you're rooting for.

Did you know former Giant Homer Jones is believed to be the first player to spike the ball after a touchdown in 1965? Did you know he regrets that now-famous celebration?

Super Bowl Sunday and parties go hand-in-hand, but law enforcement officials want to remind revelers that drinking and driving don’t. “We will have our normal troopers out patrolling along with some DUI enforcement units,” warned Sgt.

Kraus asked motorists to plan ahead to make sure they get home safe. “The one thing we would like to stress is for motorists to please be responsible,” Kraus said. “If they are drinking, call a cab, have a designated driver or call someone to pick them up.” He also reminded that drinking and …
