(KMOV) – Online retailer CafePress is leading an effort to permanently move future Super Bowls to Saturday, and the company has enlisted the help of ESPN’s Kenny Mayne.

CafeExpress and Mayne launched the website MoveTheBigGame.com, which contains a video of the always-funny Mayne walking around the streets of New York making the argument of moving the biggest game of the sporting calendar up a day.

“Super Bowl is unquestionably the pinnacle moment in America’s sports calendar. It is a spectacle of hard-hitting tackles and even harder-hitting capitalism, with multimillion-dollar, 30-second television commercials and host cities reaping hundreds of millions in tourism dollars. As such it has become more than just a sports holiday, but an American holiday,” CafePress wrote in the description of a YouTube video created to complement the website. But like most great traditions, is there a way to make the Super Bowl better? Yes!”

Mayne argues moving the game to Saturday would make for better Super Bowl parties, and since most people would not have to work the next day, more non-sports fans would attend events.

Another argument they make is the Monday after the Super Bowl is cited as one of least productive work days in the country.

What do you think? Should the Super Bowl be moved to Saturday?
