West Coast games are so late at night. Especially when you live on the east coast. No harm though, looking forward to a great game!

GO SOX!

Time zones stink.

No kidding. I'm on the east coast right now and gotta start watching at 10. Luckily, I'm a night person.

They're real tough when you've got an 8 am eastern time zone lab to teach the next morning. . . ugh, today was long. At least tomorrow, my 8 am spot is just a class I can suffer through for an hour and then crash after that.

Get out if you think it sucks. ^

I like late games sometimes. Gives me time to do other things during the day. At least it is a earlier game tommorrow though.

Back in high school I hated the 9:00 starting time. Now that I'm in college and don't have class til 9:30 am, I don't really mind them.

This thread is classic especially the title.

As far as the time start I don't really care. Sleep is overrated I believe except when one is sick, then it is very valuable. For me sleep just doesn't do much. Get my five hours and a cup of coffee and I'm off to the races.

It's hard for me to get to sleep during a west coast game. I won't turn the game off until I feel for sure it's won or lost. I get superstitious about turning off the TV and turning on the clock radio if the Sox are winning. Too many times the bullpen has coughed up the game after I turned off the tv, and turned on the radio to listen in bed. I feel it's my duty to be tired and cranky the next day to insure a Sox win. :smile:

I too, am not a fan of games on the West Coast. I don't usually do my homework/studying on weekdays til around 9 or 10 o'clock as I have no motivation to do anything after a long day of class. And when the Sox are in Anaheim, Oakland, or Seattle, my motivation to do homework really goes down the toliet... just like it did last night when I had a paper to write. Thank God the library is open at 7 AM!

Its actually quite nice being out here in LA. Wake up and you have games at 10:00, 1:00, 4:00, and 7:00 same for football. Basketball and hockey though is different as most of those games don't start till 4:00 out here

I always thought living on the West Coast is great for a sports fan. If Vegas ever got a MLB team or NFL team I would seriously think about moving there as I grow up. A lot depends on jobs and what not, but I think the West Coast is great for a sports fan.

I'm in the eastern time zone too, and catch a 6:30 train for my 2-1/2 hour commute to work in Chicago. Thanks to the time change, I get to Chicago early enough, but, yes, west coast trips are tough! It used to be worse, however, before the net as the newspaper wouldn't have late scores. At least I'm able to wake up now, and hop on the computer to check the scores.

Given my abnormal work schedule (9 AM -10+ PM), they are great for me.

Not only do I get to see the game, but my workout goes by a whole lot quicker with the game on the TV.

I just want them to move spring training there: I would go every year. Arizona is about .000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% as fun.

Yeah, this time zone thing has got to go. Blame it on Selig!

May I ask what you do that requires you to work 13 hours a day?

For some reason, ever since I moved to Seattle, I enjoy West Coast games a lot more. Weird.

Investment banking - 13 is an average-to-light day, but with the chance to see a weekday game live, I make sure to get out.

I do have weekend tickets, so I see at least 27 other games live.

Scratch that off potential careers despite the fact I bet it pays well.

I have represented investment bankers. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. If you want to make big bucks without winning the Lottery, you have to pay a price.

I end up staying up until the conclusion of every west coast game. Just can't stand going to sleep not knowing the outcome of a Sox game. Even as a little boy I would take a small transistor radio (guess I just gave away my age) to bed with me.
The problem is, that if the outcome of the game is disasterous, such as the sudden loss like we witnessed Tuesday night, I can't fall asleep. I lay there tossing and turning fretting over what should have happened, etc. Guess I will never change, but I sure do lose alot of sleep over this team.
