Game starts at 4 our time. Wife works till at least 6. Mrs. Corsair is now totaly in love with America's Pastime. She asked me not to watch it without her! Man, gotta go into a media blackout shell, no Facebook, No UPPMB, nothing! I think I will go running or something! :(

Bucfan's computer at work has 3 screens.

One of them may - MAY - have the baseball game on it.

Okay, of course the game will be on.

That's the best way, go outside and totally get away from all media. But what if your wife knows the score when she gets home?

I'm slowly converting my girl. She's mildly interested, but that's about it. I'll be watching the game without her. They'll have the game on where she works anyway.

she doesn't listen to sports radio in the car, usually music or local talk, so there's slim chance of her learning any info.

AZ, you should appreciate this: Tomorrow is a half day, the kids are gone at 11:30 and we get the afternoon to grade and enter six week grades. Man, I have a hunch I am going to have a "dentist appointment" tommorrow ;) and will sign out for the afternoon.

Can always get my grading done on Saturday!

I'll be in that same boat Friday. I can maintain today...but Friday my co-worker, who's a Cards fan....I told him to maintain radio silence. I may have to isolate myself from him because I'd be able to tell how the game is going just by how he acts. I'll be PO'd if someone ruins the outcome for me.

My miracle league team plays at 5, so I am going to DVR it and make sure I avoid any knowledge of what happens.

Will probably miss the first 3 or so innings on TV, but will follow online.

Tomorrow will be tough though... I may have to test out the office TVs... :D

We have early release every Fri. but not until 12;30. At 1230 it will be 4 o'clock somewhere as our old boss used to say.

AWESOME! I coach a team. My kids are 6-15...mostly down, a few autistic.

Did you see my thread earlier this year about the Fantasy Camp the Pirates put on for our kids?

Here is a link to it including some pics. The Pirates did an amazing job for the kids that day!
