Plan to skip work on Super Sick Monday?
Of course you're watching the Big Game on Sunday.
How you plan to watch it, and whether you plan to call in sick on Monday are still up in the air, right?
Two new surveys found that most people watching Sunday's Super Bowl match up between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta will use cable television and over-the-air broadcasts. A big chunk of people is going to stream the game.
And, a big chunk of men is expected to miss work on Monday (regardless of which team they support). In Oregon, a new AskMen survey found that about 18 percent of men questioned were likely to call in sick on Feb. 4.
A survey of about 2,800 people across the country by Sports Illustrated and PCMag found that 50 percent planned to watch the game on cable TV, 8 percent will watch over the air broadcasts and 11 percent will stream the game. A whopping 31 percent of those surveyed don't plan to watch the game (probably Chiefs and Saints fans).
The bulk of fans between 18 and 34 plans to stream the game (60 percent). Older fans (55-plus) plan to watch an over-the-air broadcast (28 percent).
LA fans are slightly more likely (16 percent) to stream the game than those cheering for the Patriots (11 percent). For the record, Oregon fans are mostly cheering for the Rams.
According to the AskMen survey, Feb. 4 could be Super Sick Monday. Men are more than twice as likely (11 percent) as women (4 percent) to skip out on work the day after the Super Bowl.
The highest number of calling-in-sick employees could be in Connecticut (23 percent), followed by Kansas (20 percent), Maryland (18 percent), Oregon (18 percent) and Indiana (17 percent).
