Professor Going Viral For Response To Student Who Skipped Class For World Series

A promo for the 2016 world series.

Need an excuse to get out of class? Easy, just drop a couple thousand dollars on World Series tickets.

The Cleveland Indians won Game 1 of the World Series 6-0 on Tuesday night, which is pretty sweet if you're an Indians fan. Also sweet? Skipping class. Even sweeter? Having your team win and skipping class to watch them do it live.

That's what one student named Charlie Winovich got to do instead of attending his geology class, and his professor appears to have given him a pass for it.

Check it out:

What a chill professor.

The lesson here? If your excuse for skipping class is somewhat valid (attending a World Series game is a once in a lifetime experience, after all) and you take full responsibility like Charlie did, generally the professor will let it slide if you just tell the truth.

The series is tied 1-1 and Game 3 of the World Series takes place this Friday. You can catch it at 8:00 p.m. E.T. on FOX.
