Law Grad Quits Firm Job to Watch World Series

By Jason Beahm on October 28, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Despite decreasing pay and increasing demands, many law associates wouldn't give up their jobs until you ripped them from their cold, dead fingers. So why did Boris Briskin walk away from his job clerking at Rose, Klein & Marias, a law firm in Los Angeles?

So he could watch the Texas Rangers. "This is basically making my year right now," Briskin said.

Briskin, a Plano, Texas native weighed the options after his firm wouldn't give him time off for the World Series. Baseball or job? Ultimately, baseball won out. After all, Briskin has been a fan of the Rangers since he was 10 years old.

So, Briskin up and left his job and went back to Texas to stay with friends in Dallas. "If I wasn't here right now I would definitely be at work. And if the Rangers weren't in the playoffs I would not be in Dallas right now," he said, Fox 4 News reports.

Briskin is well aware that some people think he is crazy. But he doesn't care. "I really couldn't miss this," he said. As far as his career goes, Briskin is quite confident that he will find a new job after he returns to California when the World Series is over. First, Briskin plans on spending his hard-earned money on World Series tickets, which will certainly cost him big bucks. He said it would be worth every penny.

Boris Briskin is confident he will find a new job when he returns to California. Hubris, anyone? "As long as the Rangers beat the Yankees I'll be right here through the World Series, and hopefully the parade," he said.

Let's just hope for his sake he isn't looking in San Francisco.
