Last night, I tried watching again. I watched into the fourth inning. At that time, the score was 1-0, Red Sox. Finally I grew a little antsy and decided to change the channel, lest my continued watching cause the Red Sox to lose.
I took a peek, a little while later, finding that the score was 1-1. After that I resolved not to even look anymore.
Even later, I got an IM from Randy at Over the Monster, that began with: "What. The Fuck. Was That."
So, where did I go wrong, here? Was it watching even a couple of innings? Peeking after leaving the game? Not watching after starting to watch? None of the above?
