Hey, everybody. Big news! The NFL is sending six teams to London next year!
Wait, you don't care because the London games are irrelevant to Americans unless they involve the team you cheer for, and because going from two games to three isn't an earth-shaking development.
But how 'bout this: One of those three games is going to kick off at 1:30 p.m. GMT. That, for those uninitiated in time zone abbreviations, is Greenwich Mean Time, which is four hours ahead of Eastern Daylight Time and seven hours up on Pacific Daylight Time.
In other words, if you're an Atlanta Falcons or Detroit Lions fan living on the west coast, be prepared to set your alarm for 6:30 a.m. in order to watch your team on Oct. 26.
This comes from the Associated Press story on the new time slot:no comments
