The World Cup Fever is here today (June 26). There are a lot of very big savvy and passionate fans of the World Cup that don't want to miss a beat of the game. The United States Coach Jurgen Klinsmann realizes this and has given you special permission to miss work. This reminds me of when you were school and the teacher would say, "Do You have a note from your parents."  The answer would usually be no, but now you have a note from the US Coach to miss today. I'm not going to say it will be accepted by every employer, but if it does, let me know.
