The next time I find myself sitting through one of those interminable dead stretches when they’re pitching Buicks and shitty cell phone service on CBS or ESPN while I’m sitting in the hot sun twiddling my thumbs, this will probably be going through my head:
“One thing is experience,” Kaaya said. “You don’t really know how the rhythm of the game goes. One thing that really shocked me at first was all the TV timeouts. It seemed like every time my freshman year when we’re about to go out on the field, I’m feeling good, I’m feeling warmed up and there’s a TV timeout right before I’m about to go out and we have to wait five minutes.”
Five minutes? Seems longer than that, sometimes. But I can definitely sympathize, brother.
