Sometimes I get a little exuberant and pencil goes rolling down the aisle or flying off my ear.
I seem to be able to get by, but I just wondered what others do at a live game.
Simple, I do not applaud, stand, eat, drink or leave my seat for any reason while keeping score. I have been pricing catheters to prepare for the inevitable issues that will come as I age.
Also, I tend to go games alone to avoid the distractions involved with things like conversation.
