If you're gonna interrupt my World Series viewing...

By
Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

I was watching the Cubs fight off extinction, last night when the call came in with an offer on one of my properties.  I was excited and yet anxious... interrupting my viewing of the fourth game in the World Series.  The Cubs do-or-die game?

We went back and forth several times, only to end up in a stalemate.

I think there should be some rule that "if you're going to interrupt my viewing of the World Series games... the deal MUST come together".

not unreasonable... right?

OMG Alan!  Somebody in Chicago was working during the 4th game?  They should be dis-licensed!

Alan May I think you have too much invested in this World Series thing.

Oh, my!  You guys must still be partying!  There was a psychic who said that if the Cubs won, Hillary would win.  Just sayin'!

I can certainly understand that feeling, though it doesn't manifest itself in the way of sporting events in my world.

Hi Alan, I was rooting for the Cubs and so glad they won.  Although...I would have appreciated it if in the last game, they would have not let that big lead get away so I didn't have to stay up for the extra inning and rain delay!  LOL  BTW...I agree, they should have been obligated to come to an agreement!

I think that's very reasonable! At least it wasn't during the final inning of game 7

I'm finally getting around to last Sunday's favorites!

I'm with you - if a potential deal is going to interrupt a game that might be the final, the deal just has to get to closing! Otherwise, it isn't worth the interruption.

I am thinking proper disclosure on your part prior to further discussion was in order.  Mark
