Team USA took on Germany today as World Cup action continued. The game was a midday game and many of Team USA's fans called in to miss work today to catch the game and they called in to tell the cast of the show the great, creative and genius ways in which they told their boss they weren't going to make it into work. There's some great ones too! Catch them all in the best of the day audio clip below.

Seeing how Team USA advances to the Round 16, they'll be playing again on Tuesday, July 1st at 3p. Now these people will have come up with another creative way to get out of work early next week!
