Time Zones

So here’s a question as I’m watching the second quarter of the Heat-Bulls game even though it’s only ten to six — what do sports fans do here on the West Coast? You’ve gotten Eastern Conference playoff games starting at 4PM. You’ve got NFL games starting at 10 AM. I’m on vacation, so whatever, but this is madness. Sure, sure on more than one spring morning I’ve felt a bit weary because I stayed up late to watch a western game, but that’s not nearly as big a deal as it simply being impossible to watch games if you have a job or asking football fans to wake up early on Sundays. It’s probably nice for schoolkids but, seriously, they can’t vote. Which brings me to the fact that I’m pretty sure I’m prepared to defend the claim that the 48 states should adopt a single time zone.
