Stuck in the office or a boring work meeting around 11 a.m. today?

That's too bad, considering the United States plays Germany in the biggest soccer game in recent American history.

But wait! There is hope. Team USA head coach Jurgen Klinsmann wrote your boss a note, excusing your absence while you watch the game!

The U.S. can advance to the knockout stage of the World Cup no matter the result today. A win or draw puts them through, but even if they lose they can still advance as long as Ghana and Portugal play to a draw, or neither catches the U.S. in goal differential, according to the U.S. Soccer team website.
