Most Genius Way to Get Out of Work for the USA vs. Germany World Cup Match

As the United States men's national soccer team sets to face Germany in an epic World Cup match-up on June 26, Americans are figuring out how to get out of work. The match is at noon EST, which happens to fall right in the middle of the work day. 

Instead of coming up with a variety of bad excuses, the USMNT's soccer coach, Jurgen Klinsmann, has (allegedly) created this genius get-out-of-work pass for all soccer fans who are stoked to watch the game. It's circling around the Internet today, and it couldn't be more appropriate.

If you're a true patriot, or just really love the World Cup, show your American pride and play hooky. Don't forget to give this handy note to your boss — it's a more legitimate reason than your whole "I'm just not feeling well today," excuse. Again.
