    One of many reasons I don’t like sports.

    last minute to 2 minutes can last upward to 20 minutes and that can be as exciting as watching paint dry or if you are watching a Michigan team ahead by x amount of points end up losing the game, it’s got to be something in the water?

    Sports played in the real world (!) doesn’t work like that.

    [Opening myself up to all kinds of strong responses from North America, especially the USA!]

    Go wash a load of clothes, shower, fix supper, eat supper, wash dishes, and there will still be 30 seconds left. Pray it doesn’t go into overtime.

    Who remembers “The Heidi Game” in 1968? -The Heidi Game or Heidi Bowl was an American Football League (AFL) game played on November 17, 1968, between the Oakland Raiders and the visiting New York Jets. The game was notable for its exciting finish, in which Oakland scored two touchdowns in the final minute to win the game 43–32, but got its name for a decision by the game’s television broadcaster, NBC, to break away from its coverage of the game on the East Coast to broadcast the television film Heidi, causing many viewers to miss the Raiders’ comeback.

    Janis, why don’t you act out Arlo’s cheerleader fantasy during the last minute? Surly things would be a lot more interesting for the both of you and you would be Arlo’s MVP.

    Basketball does not last that long, in the final minute. However, football seems to last for a hour, during the last two minutes.

    At least NHL hockey has a rule that the public address announcer has to announce the last minute of play in each period!

    Except for the days of Lucas and Havlicek, I was never a big fan of pro basketball. Then, when the ABA and NBA merged and changed a game of finesse to street ball, I was completely turned off.

    I might come back if they eliminate the three-point shot, raise the basket three feet, lengthen the court by 20 feet, widen it by 10, eliminate the two (or three, in some cases) step layup, throw out players who deliberately foul to stop a scoring shot, and start enforcing the rules against unnecessary roughness.

    So, she was zoning out (dozing) and Arlo startled her awake by sitting back down on the couch?

    When I do tune in to college hoops, I don’t really watch until there are two or three minutes left. Why bother?

    or was she just transitioning from ‘gotta pee, but not bad’ to ‘dang, I really gotta go!’

    I have thought many times that basketball games should just last two minutes, since that’s the only part that matters.

    And in college basketball, the season in meaningless. All that matters are the playoffs.

    Two reasons the sport bores me like no other.

    I have no sympathy for sports nuts who complain when the TV schedule is followed. I am a fan of sci fi, and back when Enterprise was on, the station always aired it after the sports game. Which meant if the game went into overtime, they would either come to the program I wanted to watch “in progress” or drop it from the schedule altogether. So one I time I turn on the TV to watch Star Trek. The game was almost over. There was a minute and a half on the clock. Because of huddles, time outs, etc., that last “minute and a half” took twenty minutes to play out! So, yeah. I have no sympathy for you sports nuts at all. :P

    I am also coming close to boycotting college football, even for the schools that I attended. Four flipping hours for a game that shouldn’t last more than two and a quarter hours? I’ve about had it.

    My dad used to say the last five minutes of a basketball game took longer to play than the rest of the game.

    No one is forcing her to sit there and watch the game. Doesn’t she have something to do that she would enjoy? Don’t ruin the game for people who do want to see it.

    Not interested in such sports. Like playing games endlessly wasting my time. But not those interested.

    All basketball games should be five minutes long.

    Our reenactment unit owns an 18th century repro cannon. We used to fire it at an all NYC vs all LI high schools football game – at the end of June! Husband and I did not do this event until he was made commander and then we sort of had to go. Stupid me. I thought “football game is one hour, half time, half hour at most, so we will be cleaning out the cannon and packing up an hour and a half after it starts”. The game ran 3 hours some years. (Most years my job was to stand on the opposite side of the field and chase off people who – believe it or not – decided to walk at the loaded cannon on the other side – photographers were really big at doing this. One year there were only 3 of us there – full crew is 6 – and husband and the other fellow decided that I would do the least harm as the person firing it – so I did so, and did so the following year also.) I am better than husband, at least I could figure out what the game score was.
