This Is How All Bosses Should Treat Upcoming US Soccer Games

There are good World Cup bosses, and there are bad World Cup bosses.

Here's a how-to guide to "good boss" if you supervise anyone while American hopes are on the line -- like today, as the U.S. men's national soccer team took on Germany:

1. Be a true American like New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. After U.S. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann issued an excuse note to the entire nation, Cuomo gave state employees extra time off to watch the game:

#USA, NYS stands strongly behind you. I'm approving an extra hour for lunch today: #USAvGER

2. Don't be like this boss, because let's be honest: no one else is doing any work, either.

Devastating! You'll just have to follow the game here!!! #LetsDoThis RT @Easy_L8vin: So I tried to use it.. @ussoccer

The U.S. just advanced out of the World Cup's round of group play, and now things are win-or-die -- so bosses of America, take note! THIS is how you handle it.
