U of I Professor Moves Midterm Exam For Cubs Baseball
I guess when you've gone a century without a World Series title, Cubs fans aren't shy to ask if certain rules can be bent to allow for playoff action.
Take this story of a University of Illinois student, via Sports Illustrated:
Ben Larson, a student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, comes from a household filled with diehard Cubs fans. They were able to secure tickets to Wednesday’s wild-card game against the Pirates, and hoped to travel to Pittsburgh as a family. There was just one problem: Ben had a midterm scheduled for Thursday.
And the good news for Ben is there will be plenty of road time to study for the class.
