Tradition? Stupid? Both?

So, the Seahawks won the Superbowl on Sunday. And today, Wednesday, there is a parade that has shut down streets downtown and caused backups all over the place. Even worse, school officials have actually said that this is an excused absence for any students that skip school to go to the parade. Isn’t this just stupid? How are these things not scheduled for Saturday or Sunday?

The quick answer is usually that it’s tradition to have the parade during the week, after the championship. But tradition, on its own, is always a horrible argument to make. If you are wondering what the streets look like, have a gander.
