Updated: A Rangers fan says he quit his contract lawyer job in Los Angeles to watch his team attempt to win the World Series.
Boris Briskin grew up in Plano, Texas, and is a longtime Rangers fan, according to the Yahoo blog The Big League Stew and MyFoxDFW.com. He has been dreaming of the Rangers making it to the World Series since he was 10 years old, and didn’t hesitate to quit when he couldn’t get vacation time to watch his beloved team win the American League pennant.
"This is basically making my year right now," Briskin, a lawyer, told MyFoxDWF.com. “I’ve loved the Rangers for so long.”
A 2009 graduate of Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, Briskin obtained his law license in December 2009. He was working as a contract lawyer for an agency when he quit, and plans to return to California to look for permanent work after attending the World Series games in Texas.
