Setup: Ah, the NCAA Tournament. The brackets. The office pools. And you really wishing you had the day off. You COULD call in sick and revel in March Madness, but should you?
I'll give you one. One day to call in sports-sick to your boss. And I don't want to hear you wasted it nursing a hangover the day after the Super Bowl, a mere four hours of entertainment at best on a day you already had off work. Or during the World Series—unless it's Game 7 at Wrigley Field. Use it on one of the first two days of the NCAA Tournament, an all-day, all-night affair that puts every other sporting postseason to shame. If your boss calls your bluff, just explain that you'd get a doctor's note—but the doctor's out too.
