perils of time zones

So, there's this incredible internet feature that allows you to watch the NCAA tournament live (or archived) on the internet [ncaasports] for free. The major downfall in the awesomeness of this is that evening games occur in the middle of the night here.

My brilliant solution was to strategically place of a scrap of paper to obscure the scores from my screen (see illustration) before going to sleep, so that I could watch the archive footage in the morning. But somehow I managed to stumble across the results elsewhere on the internet prior to putting this plan into effect. And, you know, I'm probably not enough of a fan to watch an entire game in a tiny video window when I know how things are going to turn out.

For that matter, I doubt that I would have had the patience to watch the whole thing without moving the spoiler hider anyway.
