Ben Larson, like many Chicago Cubs fans, has been waiting for many years for his team to make the playoffs. 

Well, they finally did. And Ben's family was lucky enough to snag a ticket to the Cubs' Wild Card playoff game in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. 

But poor Ben, a student at the University of Illinois, was faced with quite the dilemma when he had a math midterm scheduled for the same day as the game! 

So, Ben took a chance and sent a pleading email to his math professor - and luckily, he was pretty understanding about the whole thing.
