Real time vs. game time

David is watching basketball. I suggested we watch one of the 50 things we have recorded on our dvr. He said "Just wait, there's only 4 minutes left." That was like ten minutes ago. I'm not exaggerating.

The time clock during sporting events does not exactly operate in real time. Once you take into account the commercials, time outs, foul shots, etc. four minutes in a basketball/football game can last forever. Don't even get me started on baseball. If its tied at the bottom of the ninth they're going extra innings until someone comes out on top.

David is a Yankees fan and some of the world series games this year went on FOREVER. They were seriously like 15 innings. At least they finally won and got it over with.

At least the season has to come to an end at some point. David is always sad at the end of football season but I'm secretly ecstatic. Finally all of my Sundays don't revolve around Cowboys football. Finally he can't say "Hold on, there's only two minutes left," and then the game goes into overtime and the kicker misses like three field goals that would've ended the game a long time ago.

I've written this whole blog in the "four minutes" left in that game.
