‘We Got You': MLB Gives Baseball Fans the Day Off

"Things are nuts, and we all need an off day."

"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."
