The day is grey, full of anticipation of an event in its 40th year of existence. The male of the species has gathered in mini clusters for the viewing of a spectacle of intense anticipation. Three and half long quarters have passed, the score is CLOSE, very close.
There is a flicker, then the powering down of appliances. I step outside to see if there are others in the same boat. As I open the door and walk outside I hear very clearly a collective ......."NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!"
I swear every male in the neighborhood began to howl all at once. That must have been the longest 30 seconds of the day to create the sound heard all over the neighborhood.
