I was on the phone with a friend last night toward the end of the game. There was four minutes left in the quarter and I made a note of the time. 8:41 my time. It took them over 20 minutes to play 3 minutes of "football". Watching someone sew would be more exciting. And I played football as a youth.
That made me laugh and could be the reason I've pretty much give up on all professional sports. Don't get me wrong as I like sports but get more enjoyment out of watching local events even when I know none of the participants.
