The Mohali Miss

I agree with you totally, except for the "staying awake to watch cricket being hard" part. I teach two labs on Tuesdays at 9 and 1 but made it through easily. It helps that I am on Central time and that when VVS is batting I have no option but to follow. It also helped that India won - the euphoria was enough of a waker-upper.

It does suck that WillowTV was not granted access to the rights by the BCCI/NeoTV. I exchanged anxious emails with the support fellows at WillowTv for a few days before the game but they apologized on the day before the Test started. *sigh* If ever there was a Test match that deserved to be on their Video scorecard/replay function, this was it.

With about 10 runs to get, CricInfo's server crashed so it was a mad scramble after that to find other websites that were doing live commentary. Rediff came through (imagine that!). Worth all that hassle.

I agree with Jaunty Quicksand about waking up. I do value sleep but I don't mind waking up at nights for it...and you don't really need to watch the whole match. One-dayers and Tests are very long and it can get tiring if you watch all of it. Watching tv makes people lazy anyway. Sometimes I take a break of half an hour or so and when I return, sometimes I'm surprised and it feels good. People don't realise they may even enjoy more if they miss a bit. Gotta watch the end though.

JQ: Sorry for the late response. I think if my feed had been better, I might have made it. I'd also returned from an evening session at the gym, and was exhausted! How lame that this series' rights aren't with Willow. US cricket fans really have it hard.

Sanya: Welcome to the blog; I agree, taking little breaks can help. I find the lunch break at 2 AM the hardest to get through though!
