Boston is awash in Red Sox fever today after last night’s stunning win at Fenway. My colleagues and I are remarking on how light the traffic was this morning coming in to work. The sports hooky survey we did last year indicates that 11% of Americans will admit to having skipped work to watch a sporting event or to recover from staying out late after having watched one. It certainly seems like a lot more than 11% of my fellow commuters are taking it easy this morning.
What about you? Do you think the World Series had any impact on your commute or your productivity today?2
