Need excuse to leave work early for tonight's Rockets game? The Beard has you covered

The Rockets have an early tip-off Thursday night and the team wants to make sure fans get to the Toyota Center in time to fill the seats.

That's where James Harden steps in.

Ticket holders to the 6 p.m. game vs. the Chicago Bulls received an email this week titled 'Get out of work early permission slip.'

The tongue-in-cheek (or is it beard?) letter, purportedly penned by Harden, is addressed to the fan's bosses, pleading for them to let their employees out of work early to get to the game on time.

The letter reads in part: "Please allow (fan's name) to leave work early on Thursday, March 31st. It's a key match-up, critical to our final push towards the playoffs, so we need all of our fans in their seats at tip ready to provide that Houston home court advantage.

"Thanks for your understanding. (Fan's name) has told me what a great leader you are!"

Harden's signature is at the bottom of the letter.

Let's hope the tactic works. Go Rockets!
