Crazy Red Sox Fan Carelessly Quits Job to Attend World Series Game

The Boston Red Sox are the best team to come out of the American League and the favorite to win the World Series right now as they have home-field advantage and a 1-0 series lead heading into Thursday night’s Game 2 matchup. Taking on the St. Louis Cardinals and attempting to win their third World Series title since 2004, the Red Sox also have one of the best fan bases in the league.

How good is the fan base? It’s so good that one certain fan quit his job in order to attend Wednesday night’s Game 1 and will likely be attending a few more games in the series because he is now unemployed with nothing better to do.

Apparently, the man’s name is Gino Marcello and he was not willing to miss the World Series for his boring job. It’s unsure whether it was the guy’s career or just a regular job, but either way, that’s a bold move for someone who is spending hundreds of dollars on World Series tickets.

Marcello said:

“He said I couldn’t take off this week because I didn’t get him enough notice. I told him I wasn’t coming in. And here I am.”

Bold move, let’s see if it pays off.

His friend who is also pictured on the left of the sign was missing a biology test to attend the game. Apparently, he admitted he would probably fail the class, but who cares about school, right? I mean, you’re attending a baseball game that costs an arm and a leg, so why not fail a class and have to pay to re-take it right? So worth it.

I get it, this could happen once in a lifetime. I mean, look at the World Series drought for the Sox that from 1918 to 2004. This is Soxtobah for goodness sakes.

Well done, Sox fans.
