I am soo frustrated. Yesterday morning, thinking ahead, I set my DVR to record game one of the NBA finals. I was so excited to rekindle the Lakers/Celtics rivalry of almost two decades ago and all day I could hardly wait to get home and enjoy the game from the comfort of my living room. However, as things usually go, the wife had to work late and then we got sucked into a liquidation sale at a store that is going out of business. All of this was ok though, or so I though, because I had the game recording at home.
So, a little after 8 PM I got home. Not wanting to accidentally catch the score, I turned the recording right on. Man, was it a close game. I was at the edge of my seat the whole time; that is, until about 9 minutes into the fourth quarter. That's when my recording stopped. You see, it was apparently programed to record for 2.5 hours, which is what NBC scheduled for the game, and what my DVR was programed to follow. ARG! In retrospect I should have known to add an additional hour to that recording when I set it up, but how could NBC be so off on their scheduling?
Oh, I was so angry. And I was even more angry when I turned on Sport Center to see a recap of the game. I can't believe the Lakers gave up such a close game. Even with the theatrics of Pierce (and yes I'm referring to his having to be carried off the court only to come skipping out of the locker room only a moment later) the Lakers should have been able to hold on and pull ahead. What an aggravating evening.
