If You Watch Game of Thrones over Bucks, Get Lost
Sunday is shaping up to be an all-time day of television. First and foremost, you have the Bucks first playoff game on 4/14 Day in Milwaukee. That is extremely exciting for all of us locals. But it goes beyond that for other sports. The final round of The Masters will happen before the Bucks game. Brewers-Dodgers wrap up their series plus you have the NBA Playoffs and Stanley Cup Playoffs in the mix as well. To wrap up the day, Game of Thrones final season kicks off at 8:00 pm that night. Yes, the start of Thrones interferes with the end of the Bucks game. If you turn off the Bucks to watch Game of Thrones, don’t join the bandwagon.
Could the Bucks be blowing out the Pistons by the time Thrones gets underway at 8:00 pm? Sure, that’s possible. But have you seen how professional basketball works from time to time? Teams get hot and go on big runs at any moment. Bucks could be up 15 when 8:00 hits, but you have to be absolutely sure the Bucks have won the game. Let’s put the number at up 25 with five minutes to go. Work your way down the minutes list with the point totals to figure out the proper time to flip it over.
Look, I’m excited for Game of Thrones, but I’m more excited for the Bucks playoff run. The show will be there at 8:30 or so when the Bucks wrap up Game 1. Watch it on HBONow at that time or if you have HBO, cue up the DVR at that time. It will be perfect. You can roll right into GOT after watching the Bucks game. The show is one that people tweet along with, so, my advice for you with the Bucks game is follow along hashtags or just ‘Bucks-Pistons’ on Twitter. That way you can avoid spoilers and still interact with everyone.
