College softball: Florida coach writes hilarious work tardiness note for fans after Florida State game

  No. 1 Florida takes on No. 8 Florida State on Wednesday night.

The No. 1 Florida softball team has a huge game against No. 8 Florida State at home on Wednesday, and the Gators are going to great lengths to ensure Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium will be as loud as possible.

Florida coach Tim Walton wrote a hilarious tardiness note in an attempt to encourage fans to come out for the rivalry game.

While fans probably shouldn’t actually give this note to their employers on Thursday, this was an awesome move by the Gators program.

Wednesday’s contest marks the first of two games between the Gators and Seminoles this year. First pitch is at 7:00 p.m. ET,  and the game will be broadcast on SEC Network.
