I don't work tomorrow, so I probably will watch the entire game. How many are checking out after the Twins get a hit?

I will probably be in the camp. 

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I'm now watching the game through a mirror...

The Oakland hitters sure do hit to the opposite field a lot :)

I'll check out when I notice the inning changed and i didn't see the inning changed.

I'll Check out when my wife walks in and turns the TV off and I blurt out... Hey I was watching that.

I'll check out when my eyelids make it hard to see.

I won't turn the TV off. I might change the channel during the commercials, however.

Out of context, that could have too many meanings.

Do they need to get a hit first?

The TV will be on while in bed. I just don't guarantee I'll stay awake.

He didn't play the blooper very well, but he sure looks better in the outfield than he did last year.

I have a tile contractor coming tomorrow to give me an estimate. I really should clean so his estimate doesn't include hazard pay.
