Pittsburgh Public Schools Announce Two Hour Hangover Delay for Super Bowl Revelers

Earlier this week Pittsburgh Public Schools Superintendent Mark Roosevelt decided that one way to deal with potential student and staff absenteeism caused by today's Super Bowl game was to install a two hour delay in the start time for classes on Monday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Arizona Cardinals today, with a 6:28 p.m. kick off slated for the game. Roosevelt predicted a late night for many in Pittsburgh and decided that the delay would help cut down on Monday morning casualties.

The schools operated on a similar two hour delay when the Steelers won the 2006 Super Bowl.
