The neighbors in my apartment building have a different cable provider that plays live sporting events on TV about two seconds earlier than my cable provider. The neighbors are big football fans and often host parties during the playoffs. It's nice because I don't care about any of the teams that are still in the playoffs, but I've been watching football all season and feel some demented drive to see it through to the end. So with my neighbors getting the game a couple seconds earlier, I always know when a big play is two seconds away from happening because I'll hear them scream in outrage or jubilation. And it's then that I'll look up from my book to watch. I see the whole game live but only have to pay attention to it for one or two minutes.
