Nothing bring fathers and sons together like postseason baseball. That is unless your 9-to-5 commitment gets in the way.

One lawyer, however, refused to allow even a trial to keep him and his son from being a part of the Washington Nationals' first World Series run in franchise history.

Facing the prospect of a trial smack dab in the middle of two NLCS games, one presumably huge Nats' fan and, perhaps, even craftier lawyer filed a motion with the court to grant a two-day extension. Within this motion, he cited the Nationals' bumpy 19-31 start to the 2019 regular season, but he was sure to include the evidence that they turned it around, in part, due to the support of his 9-year-old son.

Remaining on brand as a lawyer, he was also sure to note that it was his supervision of the 9-year-old fan that would keep him away from the courtroom, as his son could not stay up late nor attend the game without an adult present.

In a sign of just how pervasive this Nationals' fever is, the opposing counsel did not object to the delay and the court approved the motion.

At the end of the day, there's likely a great deal of sports fans that are guilty of playing hooky from work to see unforgettable moments from their favorite teams. And if they're lucky, they might get to do it with the ones that mean the most to them. However, very few fans can say that they have formally petitioned a court to be able to watch a ball game with their son.
