If you're a fan of the Minnesota Golden Gophers football team, and you're looking for an excuse to leave work early on Thursday to catch the team's season opener, head coach Jerry Kill has the solution!
The Gophers are set to play host to the UNLV Runnin' Rebels Thursday night beginning at 6:00 PM and Coach Kill wants to ensure that everyone who wishes to tailgate beforehand can do so without fear of reprimand from work.
That is why he penned this unofficial hooky note that fans can print off and give to their boss in an effort to seek permission to bounce from the office early.
Coach Kill says it's okay to play hooky from work tomorrow -- just print this off and give it to your boss! #Gophers pic.twitter.com/r8sXEOxcksWhether it actually works remains to be seen.
