Teen petitions to move the Super Bowl to Saturday

Frankie Ruggeri, 16, from New York has gotten over 70,000 people to sign a petition to move the Super Bowl to Saturday. Why? Because people skip work the following Monday.

Ruggeri believes that more fans will be able to watch the Super Bowl if it is moved to Saturday.

“Schools are not open the next day,” Ruggeri told WHAM-TV 13 in Rochester, N.Y. “School the next morning or work — might as well put it Saturday.”

He will be watching the Super Bowl with his family and will be rooting for the San Francisco 49ers.
