Student Skips Class for World Series, Professor Cool

Excuses don’t get much better than this.

An Ohio college student who ditched class to head to the opening game of the World Series in Cleveland has won a reprieve from his professor by being honest.

Ohio University professor Damian Nance says Charlie Turner checked into his Tuesday class by swiping a card, but wasn’t there when Nance took attendance at the end of the session.

Turner came clean after Nance emailed him, asking for an explanation. Turner told the professor his father had gotten him tickets to the game against the Chicago Cubs and that he left for Cleveland after checking in. He included a picture of himself and his brother at Progressive Field.

Nance responded by calling it “an impeccable excuse,” and added “no repercussions.”

Nance tells The Associated Press he let Turner off the hook, not because he’s a big Indians fan, but because the student “fessed up.”

That’s one cool teacher in our books.
