In what’s now become a well-worn path, the Atlanta Falcons are the latest football team to issue “permission slips” to its fans so that they can buck dress code or work hours to support their team.

This time around, the team’s getting fans off the hook for wearing black and red in violation of any dress codes so that the fans can support the team as they head into battle against the Packers on Sunday.

Here’s the tweet that will result in hundreds of funeral directors and policemen wearing red and black:

I don’t know what an entire city of people wearing red and black looks like, but I’m guessing it’s like a city-wide “Thriller” video, which actually sounds kind of cool.
