I don’t want to scare anyone with the title of this blog, but I didn’t know what else to call it. For those of you that don’t know, the time difference from the East coast to Ireland is 5 hours. While this presents a number of problems, none are more problematic than the tip off times of games. Watching the NBA, College basketball, as well as my former team and friends still playing in college, has always been one of my favorite things to do in the world. And when my Knicks tip off at 1am over here, I really don’t have a choice but to stay up and watch. This is an issue because of the fact that I have 9am class every single day, and when NBA games take about 2-3 hours, well you can do the math.
So as the basketball season in America is getting into full swing, my sleep schedule is getting more and more absurd. Hopefully as the season settles in, games will start earlier and earlier, and I will be able to get to bed at a decent hour again. But thank God for Sunday. Typical Sundays will include coaching my u16 boys, followed by a full slate of NBA games typically. It doesn’t get much better than this.
So in conclusion, Coach Keckler and Jason Fein if you are reading this, stop scheduling games at 7pm!!! Sincerely, a sleep deprived fan living in a different time zone.
