Professor's Response To Student's Request To Move Test For Baseball Game Is Epic

True fans understand.

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign student Ben Larson is a Chicago Cubs fan who has somehow done the impossible. According to NESN, he convinced a professor, identified only as "Dave," to move a midterm so that he could go see the Cubs play the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park some 480 miles away the night before the test was scheduled. 

He posted the honest and affectionate interaction on Twitter.

It's the kind of heartfelt exchange that all sports fans will understand.

And Dave's response is ... well, perfect.

Better bring Professor Dave a jersey or something.
