There are other benefits as well. Like getting to say things like:

"Imagine, millions of sheep sitting around . . . half of which wind up saying, "we won, we won!.""

We? They won, you watched.

Enjoy it for the secular holiday it's become.

SY,
If I don't get off from work it doesn't count as a holiday in my book. Though I'd be happy to take advantage of the opportunity should the Powers That Be decide that it's worthy of official status.

Accomplishing something, learning something, developing skills, maybe saving money, maybe earning money.

That's opposed to accomplishing nothing, learning nothing, developing nothing and certainly spending money.

You know Bill, for such an intelligent guy, you sure have a cruddy and unintelligent way of discussing others interest in sports. If you fail to realize the potential excitement, tension release, camaraderie and spiritually uplifting experience that viewing sports can be, well... go back to sniffing solder flux, it seems to have already affected your judgement of others entertainment values, a little more won't hurt. Heck you might even earn some money.

I think you should stick to picking on the likes of wire directionality. Your take on that issue is much better received.

Respectfully yours,
Cal
