I Am So Smart - S M R T

Conscious that the Birthday party planners for BigE's friend from school clearly weren't NFL fans and I quote

The win, in perhaps the NFL's biggest regular-season game ever, keeps the Patriots (9-0) on course for the NFL's first unbeaten season since Miami did it in 1972 and gives them the first tiebreaker over Indianapolis (7-1) in the AFC playoffs.

I decided to record the game so that I could watch it. I figured by removing the commercials and half time I could be live in the fourth quarter.

This is where I figured I was so SMART

Now that may not mean much if your not into football but if you are then that means that we had a sneak peak at the AFC final early (which will undoubtedly be better then the Super Bowl). I.e a good game.

So I get home and the game is started. I decide to mow the lawn that one last time so that seeing how I had (a) daylight, (b) had moved the rink boards out back, and (c) Momma was up to play with BigE.

So now I was 90 minutes behind the game. But I was still so SMART.

As I watched the first quarter I was using the PVR's 30 second skip forward to just watch the plays. For you old VCR types out there that means I push the fast foward button once and it automatically goes ahead 30 seconds and then resumes playing. Technology has gone far in the last 20 years.

So in the matter of 45 minutes I'm in the 3rd quarter. But then it's snuggle time for BigE. No big deal I'm recording the show. Although the fourth quarter is live now and must be nearly done. But I dear not look in case I see the score.


I get back to the show, watch the Patriots drive for a TD and get within 3 when the recording stops. WTF!?!? The PVR stopped after the alloted 3 hour game time. Mean while the game had finished in real time about 5 minutes ago. Ughhhh

So I had to go to the web to find the score. To find out I missed another score with 3 minutes to go. I missed Indy losing at home. (Which to a Broncos fan is fun).

Al because I was so SMRT!
