Now I don’t know what to do. The Japanese Grand Prix is this weekend, and qualifying was on late last night. Like midnight. So, as usual I TiVo’ed it planning to watch it tonight either before or after the Red Sox game, depending on my mood later this evening.
One little quirk of mine: if I have recorded a race or other sporting event to watch later, I do not like to find out the results before I watch it. Because at that point, why bother watching? This is something most people who know me know about me.
So, this afternoon I inadvertently, through no fault of my own found out who is on pole.
My conundrum is this. Should I just go ahead and look at the results or not? I guess I am especially annoyed because
**Spoiler alert – don’t read the rest of this if you don’t know who’s on pole and you don’t want to know yet**
that Lewis Hamilton is on pole. That Lewis Hamilton I hate. So I’m not super excited about watching that. But I don’t know where anybody else ended up, or if there were any penalties handed down after the fact.
**End spoiler alert**
If I look at the results I may not want to watch it at all. I am already almost at that point. And there are only 3 races left this season. I should savor them and watch every moment. But if I peek and don’t bother watching I won’t have to stay up so late tonight, and would maybe even have time to watch the review show of the Singapore Grand Prix. A race I enjoyed tremendously.
But I really wanted to watch qualifying. I am not a happy camper.
