This Red Sox fan watching his team lose in class is an incredible short film


Normally we see students sneaking sports during class when March Madness rolls around, but this die-hard Red Sox fan got captured by a classmate during his moment of anguish and it’s oddly beautiful.

It starts with him intently watching the game, hoping something will change — only to slam his laptop shut. We can’t see what happened, and yet we know. The camera pans back to show a second laptop, this one with the Astros celebrating their ALDS win. We cut back to the fan in his anguish, trying to pretend to listen to the lecture but he can’t, the pain is too real.

He throws his head back in pain, letting the emotion wash over him.

There’s so much beauty in the world.
