LOS ANGELES - Did you stay up late to watch Game 5 of the World Series? MLB's excuse note has you covered.
Sunday night's game was the second-longest in World Series history - and it kept a lot of kids (and adults) up way past bedtime.
The MLB tweeted an excuse note that states, "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."
It continues -- "#Postseason baseball is insane - that's basically all you need to know. Things are nuts, and we all need an off day. Yours truly, Baseball Twitter."
After the gripping slugfest that lasted 10 innings, the Dodgers lost to the Astros 13-12, falling behind 3-2 in the series as it returns to Los Angeles. Game 6 is set for 5:20 p.m. PT on Tuesday.
