Score? US Men’s Soccer’s permission slip so your employees can miss work today

I remember a high school classmate of mine who had his mom send in a permission slip to excuse him from missing school for the Philadelphia Phillies’ home opener. Mom’s note indicated that her son was suffering from “Vernal Flu.” 

Get it? Vernal Flu = Spring Fever.

Pretty creative, huh?

The US Men’s Soccer team is not impressed.

UPDATE: Daniel Schwartz scooped me on this last night with “A Note from the U.S. Coach is a Great Idea, But Not a Good Excuse.” NEWMAN!
