Indy bus drivers may get Super Bowl Monday delay

Those of you who have to get up for work early on the day after the Super Bowl know how difficult that is and would love to go into work a few hours late.

Well, they might just be doing that in the Indianapolis School District on Monday.

With the hometown Colts playing -- and favored -- in the Super Bowl, the school district has scheduled a two-hour delay for Monday to give bus drivers a few more hours to get to work. The only problem? State education officials don't like the plan because the big game doesn't count as an emergency.

After the Colts won the Super Bowl in 2007, so many bus drivers -- who are scheduled to report at 5:30 a.m. -- called in sick that the school district had to cancel all classes.
