If you're like many around the US today, you'll be taking a very long lunch... or even the day off... to make sure you can watch the United States play Germany in the World Cup.

Kickoff from Recife is 11am CDT, so most people are looking to take the day off to head to the local bar or watch party.

In case you're horrible at making up fake excuses, like I am, the US National Team Coach Jurgen Klinsmann has written a proper note to help you get out of work today.
