Spurs vs. Halloween

The conundrum in navigating a coveted family night while obsessing about basketball

Let’s start with the obvious- yes, I can record the game. But right now watching games feels like an “in the moment” thing. On Sunday, I recorded the Spurs game against the Clippers so I could make it to a commitment. I started he game around 9:30 and by the time the fourth quarter had started I knew the result, I was tired, and I checked out.

Honestly, I am enjoying it all. Win or lose, it is about watching the players develop. How they react to Sunday will say a lot about the next couple of weeks, which is playing the groundwork for the season as a whole.

So, how in the world am I going to navigate the evening without stepping on toes? We always go out with another family who we’ve been trick or treating for years now. Checking the schedule, by the time the game starts we should be in, BUT, the World Series is playing as well, and I am pretty sure our hosts will have the game on.

Are you watching the game tonight or are you out partying the night away?

Is there a way to both be present for Halloween and slip away for the game without being rude?

I’m taking suggestions, Pounders.

How are you spending All Hallows’ Eve?
