Really want to watch the U.S.-Germany game on Thursday, but don't know how you're going to get off work? The U.S. men's soccer team has you covered.

To whom it may concern:
Please excuse _____________ from work on Thursday, June 26th.
I understand that this absence may reduce the productivity of your workplace, but I can assure you that it is for an important cause. The #USMNT has a critical World Cup game vs. Germany and we will need the full support of the nation if we are to advance to the next round.
By the way, you should act like a good leader and take the day off as well. Go USA!
If your boss doesn't let you root for your country after reading that, well, then maybe you need to find a new boss. The game is at 12 p.m. EST.
