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!
