I’ve written before about how much I hated skipping out of ball games early as a kid. What was I gonna do, tell my father we couldn’t leave?
Me? I never leave early. Like on November 14 in Buffalo, even though only 14 seconds remained, there was still a chance the Bills could lose. Many other fans were racing for the exit, but I would not budge until seeing Detroit’s failed on-side kick attempt. The Bills have fought out numerous nail biters this season, most of them ending in heartbreaking fashion.
I think the Boston Bruins tackle the whole leaving early thing perfectly in this commercial, part of their terrific Hockey Rules campaign. I can never remember which you do if a bear attacks — pretend you’re dead or climb a tree?
