Hell, imagine if the Phils win game 6 and the Raps game becomes a blow out either way. I'd doubt there'd be a single person in the stands.

Doc, ever heard of a PVR? Wonderful technology, and you also get to fast forward through commercials...

Nope ... I'm still using a beta VCR.

Yeah, if it does change to 6pm I'll like get my wife to start recording it for me so I don't miss anything.

Fuckin' World Series. :mad:

I'm using my float day for Raps opening night so this is great news. The earlier the better.

76ers Sixers Could Reschedule Opener To Avoid World Series Conflict

The Philadelphia 76ers season opener may be moved forward to avoid a scheduling conflict should the Phillies play the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series on Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Daily News is reporting.

Caught that on RealGM.

Wow, so our opener may effectively be moved to a earlier time as well?

I don't care as long as the game is on Wednesday and is at 7 or before 7, it just shouldn't be after 7

Would it otherwise conflict with your bedtime?
