By now you likely saw USA soccer coach Jurgen Klinsmann's "get out of work" letter. If not, here's the gist: Klinsmann on Twitter posted a handwritten note that workers can hand to their bosses excusing them from the office so they can watch the United States face Germany for a chance to enter the elimination round on Thursday. "I understand that this absence may reduce the productivity of your workplace, but I can assure you it is for an important cause," he wrote.
