I'm one of those awful American males who don't want the real world getting in the way when the NFL is on the tube. When Pope John Paul I was poisoned died suddenly after deciding to investigate the Vatican Bank, his funeral preempted the NFL. The announcer said that watching the funeral, even on TV, gave the viewer one indulgence. However, I figured that wishing they'd get the goddam thing over with so I could watch the game was a mortal sin, so it was a wash.

Yesterday the reading of the 9/11 names on CBS ran into the time for scheduled football, but there was also a game on Fox, so I merely had to wait a bit to switch back & forth during commercials. drcpunk watched the 9/11 ceremony on purpose, and today she said that the only bad thing was the way CBS kept doing voiceovers to apologize that the reading was running longer than expected. I guess for once I'm in a popular demographic.
