In the sports world, no two words inspire more stress and excitement than “Game 7,” and with the team vying for their first championship in 108 years, the Chicago Cubs are doing their part to help out fans that are freaking out over one of the biggest games in the history of the franchise.
In a letter posted to the team’s Twitter account, the Cubs have taken the liberty of writing a note excusing fans from work, school, and all other responsibilities that may crop up when the team takes the field on Wednesday night in Game 7 of the World Series:
The letter reads:
“To Whom It May Concern:
Please excuse _______ from class/work/other responsibility on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016.
The Chicago Cubs are playing Game 7 of the World Series, and if you are not familiar with sports narratives….well, it’s kind of a big deal.
We need all the support we can muster up, and _____ has been an integral part of our fan base for ____ days/weeks/months/years, and we cannot #FlyTheW without them.
Thank you so much for understanding, and if you ever need a cute GIF tweeted at you, we are your Twitter account.
The Cubs have not played in a World Series Game 7 since the 1945 season, and Wednesday’s game will only be the second winner-take-all contest the team has played in a Fall Classic, so the team’s note should be deeply appreciated by fans looking for a chance to potentially witness history.
