My lack of knowledge about most sports has been well documented in past blog posts. Honestly, besides watching an occasional St. Louis Cardinals game or going to Rent One Park for a Southern Illinois Miners game, I don't watch professional sports.
At his most recent game at home, I was asked by another parent to help run the clock in the press box. I was very reluctant, confessing immediately that I know NOTHING about football. I was told not to worry about it, and was given a crash course on when to stop the clock and when to let it run.
The funniest part to me was in the closing minutes of the game, an older woman (a player's grandmother) stood up and turned around and screamed to the box, "GET SOMEONE ELSE TO RUN THE CLOCK!!!" I took it all in stride, giving her a thumbs up and saying "thanks for the support.", but with the tinted windows, I seriously doubt she saw me.
