Some professors stick to the textbook and course curriculum. Others teach their students about life.

Professor Dave from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign would fall under the latter category.

This legendary teacher granted a student named Ben Larson an extension on his midterm exam because the Larson family is going to the Chicago Cubs’ Wild Card Game in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Oct. 7.

That’s what college—and fanhood—is all about.
