Jurgen Klinsmann Has Given America Permission to Skip Work to Watch USA-Germany
Today, millions of Americans face a pretty serious problem.
The U.S. Men’s National Team faces Germany in the World Cup, and a tie or a win (or a loss and a Portugal win over Ghana) gets them to the next round. So sports fans want to watch. However, the game is at 12 P.M. Eastern, 9 A.M. Pacific. And for the vast majority of people in the Land of the Free, that time conflicts with work.
Like I said—serious problem.
Fortunately, USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann has found a solution. And that solution is giving the entire country permission to take the day off.
Seriously, it’s all 100% official. He wrote everyone a note and everything. Just print it out, fill in the blanks, and hand it to your boss. No questions asked.
Of course, some of you may be wondering, “gee, won’t it be bad for the economy if nobody goes to work today?” And the answer is yeah, maybe. But this is sports, guys. It’s important.
Besides, Jurgen Klinsmann is German, and Germans are hardcore about work. If he says it’s okay to skip work today, it’s okay to skip work today.
