A lot of employees will be out of work Monday with Super Bowl Fever

Oh yeah.  It’s BIG, in fact it’s super. ” THE SUPER BOWL”  people around the world.  It’s like Christmas, New Years and the 4th of July in the U.S.  And there will be eating, drinking, yelling, cursing and lots of money changing hands.  And there will be hangovers, gameovers as I call them.  Too much of everything, especially of the alcohol variety.

After all, USA Today states that, The Super Bowl is the biggest day of the year for football fans, and the Monday after is a big day for people to miss work.

An estimated 17.2 million adults employed in the U.S. are expected to miss work the day after the Super Bowl, according to a survey from The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated.

It’s the biggest day of Super Bowl related absenteeism since Kronos started tracking in 2005. The institute conducted a “Super Bowl Fever survey” with 1,107 adults in U.S. earlier this month. They found more than 8 million workers will take a pre-approved day off, but an additional 4.7 million are estimated to take a sick day even though they’re not ill.

But it’s not just employees. Their bosses are more likely to not work normal hours the Monday after the Super Bowl, the survey reports.

“Both employees and their bosses continue to play hooky the day after The Big Game,” said Joyce Maroney, executive director at The Workforce Institute, in a statement.
Another 3.1 million workers may go in to work late, the institute estimates, while 6.3 million are expected to leave work early.

All for a football game, American style.  So, who do you like ?  The Patriots or the Rams ?

Here’s When to Use “Everyday” Versus “Every Day”



Every day you wake up, hop in the shower, get dressed, drive to work, and eat the same everyday breakfast of a bagel with cream cheese. This sentence exhibits the proper usage of both every day and everyday.

From context clues, someone might be able to glean each definition, but a refresher is always appreciated. ‘Everyday’ vs. ‘every day’ have their own unique usages, and both belong to different parts of speech. If you’re already confused, read up on these other confusing rules in the grammar world.

Everyday is an adjective used to describe something which is standard, commonplace, or habitual. You may say that a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is an everyday meal, but that doesn’t necessarily make it literally something that you eat every day. Generally speaking, everyday is going to precede a noun in a sentence. For example, ‘His everyday headband was reliable, always keeping the sweat off his brow.’

Every day is an adverbial phrase referring to something which is actually done on a daily basis. It is composed of an adverb, every, and a noun day. Every day is used to describe verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. For example, ‘Jimbo wakes up every day at 7 a.m.’

The usages are similar and will frequently deal with concepts of routine. It can be easy to get them jumbled, but in writing, it’s always great to know the rules. But in conversation, all bets might be off. It’s not like you’re going to time the pauses between ‘every’ and ‘day’ in your everyday conversations, are you?
