ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – If you’re thinking of playing a little hooky Monday — the day after the Super Bowl — you’re definitely not alone.

A study out this week shows that nearly 14 million Americans are considering calling in sick to work Monday.

That’s a lot of lost productivity, so some have been floating the idea of just throwing in the towel and making the Monday after Super Bowl an official holiday.

It’s such a phenomenon that it even has it’s own trending hashtag: #SuperSickMonday.

And believe it or not, it might be an idea that is taking hold.

A recent survey of human resource managers found that more than 7 out of 10 are OK with the holiday idea because 1 in 5 Americans will be staying home anyway.
