    Ahhhhhhh!!!

    Okay, I'm out of town on a BT, and I have the game on DVR. I hate to know anything before I have a chance to watch the games when in this situation. I call the wife and kids to check in, you know as Kramer would say to "talk about your day". I'm about to hang up, and she tells me the final score!!!

    WTF?!?!?

    I'm extremely happy we won, but damn...I wanted to feel like I was watching it in real time. Maddening.

    Nice W guys.

    That sucks. But I can't do that. Curiosity kills the cat every time.

    If it makes you feel any better, it is exciting from start to finish. I would say this, just watch the game until Drew gets in and then you can shut it down knowing the final score.

    Re: Ahhhhhhh!!!

    Blast from the past, but I had a friend who (stupidly) agreed to take his girlfriend out for dinner the same night as our bowl game in 2000. Once he realized his snafu, he tried to get out of it but alas was unable to. So he wanted to maintain the illusion of watching it live - but all his friends spilled the beans after the W by calling his cell like none other.
