Playoff overtime hockey means no commercials, and no peeing

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Thanks to Twitter, we can chronicle the travails of people who need to pee during overtime playoff hockey games.

There is nothing in sports like overtime in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Two evenly matched teams, tired as hell, going at it, with a goal ending it. So much pressure, with both teams a great play -- or costly mistake -- away from elation or devastation.

Even better, it's the rare sporting event that comes with zero commercials. Hockey broadcasters wait until the end of the game (or the entire 20 minute period) before interrupting beautiful sports with somebody yelling FLATIZZA at us. This is awesome, but it also allows the stress and intensity to build up and build up without the logical release of a commercial break.

Yes, with no commercials, you cannot pee. I decided to inspect, and found Twitter is FILLED with people expressing their hockey playoff overtime-caused urinary situations.

And why do we hold it? Fear of missing out: Because if we pee, this will happen: So let's salute the people that made it! And try to avoid the people that didn't: Maybe we all should just take precautions: Wait, precautions means not drinking? Oh, no. Let's not do that.
