CHICAGO, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- The Chicago Cubs offered fans planning to skip work or school for Game 7 of the World Series a "super official" excuse note for their bosses and teachers.

The team's official Twitter account posted a photo Wednesday of a form letter designed to get fans excused from school, work or other commitments so they can support the team against the Cleveland Indians in the final game of the tied series.
