Texas Rangers fan Boris Briskin makes movie legend Ferris Bueller look like a dithering amateur when it comes to doing one's own thing.
A native of Plano, Texas who presumably grew up watching the likes of Nolan Ryan, Ivan Rodriguez(notes) and Dean Palmer, Briskin moved away 10 years ago and went to college. He got a law degree and, later, a job clerking at a firm in Southern California.
Well, when the Rangers were on the verge of making the World Series and Briskin couldn't get vacation time to come back home and watch them clinch the AL pennant in person, he faced a dilemma.
So, naturally, he quit his job. Just like that. To watch the Rangers.
Talk about seizing the day! That's seizing a fortnight.
