Sunday Nov 4 Any day but Sunday

From a local news station:


FOOTBALL CITY - In a political season where campaigns disagree on almost everything, here's one area where state politicians have found common ground: suspend campaigning whenever a [our football team] game is on.

In the hotly contested U.S. Senate race, campaign volunteers took a 3-hour timeout Sunday while [our team] played [another team].

The campaigns say they know better than to upset voters with a phone call or a knock on the door during a key moment in the game.

Republican Senate candidate [Dude 1] says it would "be dumb" to antagonize a voter by interrupting the game. And his Democratic opponent, [Dude 2], says everyone knows you don't disturb a [our team] fan while the game is on.

The presidential campaigns also stopped campaigning for those three hours.
