    I used to love 8:08. Nobody had to care whether they were "productive" the next day or not.

    I like it from a purely selfish point. I have to go to bed early to get up at 4:30 am to get ready for work. This will give me 30 more minutes of being able to watch the Reds. Some nights, not many, I might just be able to see the entire game now.

    I remember those 8:05 starts. I also remember the games usually being over by 10:30 pm. Rarely did a game go 3 hours or more. Times have changed, that's for sure.

    Aren't kids in school in May also?
