The forfeit factor of dumb-light savings time
Daylight savings time is lurking around the corner, this Sunday at 2:00am, to be exact. And yes, it's "spring forward", not "fall back", which means we all lose an hour of sleep. Sorry for those of you with a 10:00am tipoff.
On most dreamleaguers' list of priorities in life, simply making it to your Sunday weekend warrior basketball game probably ranks very high. The reasons for not having daylight savings time, or at least the two disturbances during the year when we have to deal with it, are too long for this post. So, suffice it to say that dreamleaguers don't need dumb American policies to mess up the hoop routine we live by.
Patrick May of the SJ Merc summed it up beautifully today:
Go ahead. Explain daylight-saving time. We dare you. Um, time springs forward, so it's lighter earlier. No, wait. It's lighter later. So if you normally get up in the dark, it'll be even darker? Or lighter? Exactly.
