    It would inconvenience too many parents. Half the state might have to shut down. Not a great idea for the economy IMHO.

    Late opening might be a better idea.

    If NO wins, I bet most kids cut school anyway.

    Bourbon Street will BURN :lol:

    Yeah, it's funny, here all the Catholic Private Schools are closed on Monday because of the game, but all the public schools are open. Some have a one or two hour delay, but most do not.

    Time to grieve, I guess :lol:

    Our kids will have Monday off. Sad part is that most won't even be able to watch the game. I am not optimistic about this power business.

    And EZ - Catholic schools look for any excuse to close. They expect the moms to stay home anyway. Lol

    NO.

    Since when is a children's game played by overpaid loosers more important than learning?

    Why would they close anything in Indiana after the Colt's lose? Is the whole state going on suicide watch?
