OT A kids game that I would have enjoyed

I enjoy most of them, but this one would have been really neat to be a part of for obvious reasons. Thank you, sir, for your service.

Hope It's A Bracelet ???

Certainly not off topic. Thanks for sharing.

I've worked with guys who would be pissed that their game (get in, get out, get paid) started late. Look at the official at the end of the video. He's either telling a girl to take off a bracelet, or pretending to point to his watch, telling his partner to get the game started on time, after all there's an adult beverage with his name on it waiting for him.

There was a longer clip I saw on TV. The soldier's son didn't realize who was on the court right away.

Last week at the start of a game, a girl had on a watch. I pointed at her to get her attention, then pointed to my own wrist. She walked toward me, extending her arm. Apparently she thought I wanted to know what time it was.

This will happen to me once, or twice, a season at my Catholic middle school games. I always thank the young boy, or girl, for offering to keep time for us, and point out that we have someone at the table already doing it.

Nice catch. I've got a good excuse. While I'm at my computer, I'm wearing a collared shirt.

The 20 minutes on the scoreboard just might have been a tipoff that numbers didn't matter.
