It's been a memorable season for the Cubs and their fans.

Cubs fan Ben Larson has proven that it never hurts to take a chance.

The college student faced a major dilemma with Chicago’s wild-card play-in game against Pittsburgh, which he has tickets for, taking place the night before he was supposed to be taking a midterm.

So, with nothing to lose, Ben apparently emailed his professor and passionately pleaded his case to have the test rescheduled.

Fortunately for Ben, he has one of the most understanding teachers ever, because his plan worked.

You really can’t say it better than Ben’s professor: "If it were any other team, I would hesitate. But, the universe gives Cubs fans only so many postseason games. They must be savored."
