    In an informal poll at the shop, it was near unanimous that the Super Bowl should be held on Saturday for numerous reasons. Should the Super Bowl be moved to Saturday?

    I would actually prefer that, so long as a situation didn't arise where it would interfere with college ball.

    I know that I'm not looking forward to going to work on Monday.

    I think Sunday remains the best day for it, but they need to get rid of all the _____(CYOW) and get to the game by 2 or 3 p.m. Get rid of such a ridiculous and exuberant halftime, too. It's a game; not America's Day of Atonement with the selected stadium the sacred temple.

    I frankly don't care when it is. Ho-hum.

    I would just as soon watch paint dry than watch a sporting event on television. I ain't joking.

    But I know that it is important to some Americans and that the issue of interfering with the Lord's Day is a serious issue to some also.


    Peace-

    I would have voted "Don't care" or "What's that?" but only yes & no were offered. :(

    I couldn't answer that poll. They could keep it on Sunday's it does not matter one bit to me. I will still be in church no matter what.
    I will be hearing preaching, and my church will NOT stop because of the football game.

    IMO churches that give up their evening service or alter it to show the game in church, need to get right with God.

    I agree with Daisy. I really don't care.

    Our church had 'Home Huddles' with a taped message with the plan of salvation given to each 'home'. Everyone who hosted was to invite their neighbors and friends too and play the message at half time.

    Who cares what time they will see it, as long as I get to see it.
