  • OT : West coast East coast time starts.

    Over the years at the OM plenty of fans rolled through from all over the country…as well as international. I’ve always wondered how you East coasters do it watching sports. It’s not bad for NFL since mostly game time starts are still early no matter EST or PST…but in general games start late on the East side. For example watching March madness now these tip offs hit 10:00 at night….7:00 for us on the west coast. I can’t imagine watching games that late. Baseball Basketball etc. we have it good on the west coast having time windows for games starting 5-7:30 as the latest. You guys watch baseball games into midnight!

    would be really weird.

    West is definitely best in that area IMO. I’ve lived in both New York and Puerto Rico (which is actually four hours ahead of Pacific Time for half the year since they don’t do Daylight Savings Time). Used up to stay up past 1 AM to watch the NBA playoffs then go to work at 7 AM the next morning. Was a little rough sometimes! Then I was in London one year during our opener (2014 IIRC, against the Seahawks), so had to stay up until 5 AM.

    At least there hardly anyone cared, so there would be less chance of somebody blowing it and telling me who won if I were there for a longer time and had to DVR it. 🤣

      I lived in Prague from 2017-2019 and the first game I saw there was that embarrassing SNF loss to the Giants. I think that was the beginning of 8 horrible losses in a row lmao

      My only issue with Pacific time for sports was missing the beginning of games because of commutes. Not a problem anymore.

        Never a issue for me.... Work and rest was more important than watching games.

            Heck yeah. Love those 10 AM NFL starts or 9:30 AM college football starts. Grab yourself a beer with breakfast and start the day off right! 🤣

              Reminds me of a few years ago when I was visiting my brother in DC during the NBA playoffs a few years ago. Denver had the 4 overtime game against Portland and it didn’t finish until around 2 am. Then my little nephew woke me up at 6 am. Killer.

                    West coast time for the win. Bronco games on average start at 1pm here

                    i lived in DC during my middle school days. I remember staying up late watching the broncos on prime time games. Went to school next day tired. Didn’t give a shit
