ALBANY, N.Y. – Governor Andrew Cuomo has given state workers an extra hour for their lunches Thursday, in response to an excuse letter written by U.S. soccer coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

Using the U.S. Soccer Twitter account Wednesday, Coach Klinsmann posted a permission slip excusing all Americans from work on Thursday so they could tune in to the World Cup match.

On Thursday, the governor responded, allowing state employees to take add an extra hour to their lunch breaks.
