Dreading going to work or school Thursday afternoon while all your friends are at bars watching U.S. soccer take on Germany?
U.S. Soccer has come up with a pretty genius excuse note to get you out of those duties, though we'd suggest printing off this note and getting to your boss ASAP.
Coverage of the game begins at 11:30 a.m. and kickoff is at noon. A win (or, less preferably, a tie) is pivotal in keeping the U.S. in the World Cup.
