"We got you, fam."
Don’t even worry about thinking of an excuse for calling off work Monday after a nail-biting Game 5 of the World Series, because Major League Baseball has you covered.
The Los Angeles Dodgers took on the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park Sunday afternoon, losing 13-12 after the Astros managed to put one more run on the board in the 10th inning.
If it was all too much to take, MLB posted a sample "out sick" note for potentially heartbroken, or just generally anxious, fans.
"Please excuse ___________ from work/school/general activities on Monday, Oct. 30, 2017, as he/she/they are emotionally recovering from Game 5 of the World Series," the note read. "Things are nuts, and we all need an off day."
