The Phillies-Dodgers game starts at 8:22pm. The Obama-McCain debate starts at 9:00pm. Hmmmm.
I'm reminded of 2004, when on one single Wednesday night, Kerry and Bush went at it, the Yankees and Red Sox squared off in perhaps the most famous ALCS of all time, and my law firm was holding a banquet as a part of an all-lawyer retreat everyone was required to attend. As a man with his priorities in order, I made sure I did the right thing: I showed up for cocktail hour at the firm thing, then went to a bar where one TV had the debate, and another TV had the ballgame with the sound off.
