One of the MDs that I work with treated me to the Giants game yesterday.
Its only the fifth NFL game that I've been to. I couln't believe how much time is spent with the players just standing around. Waiting and waiting and waiting for the commercial breaks to be over.
Guys were jumping around just to stay loose. Finally they huddle up for a sec to remind people of the play that was called six minutes ago.
When you're at home, you get a bite, go to the bathroom, etc. It really amazed me.
The 1PM would probably end at 3PM if they actually played at a normal pace.
