I had to work late last night and I did something that made me a little proud: I successfully avoided human contact and (most) technology for 4 hours while my TiVo at home recorded Game 6 of the Stanley Cup between the Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils.
It’s surprisingly difficult to temporarily disconnect when you’re “connected” like I am. I had my iPhone on and willingly continued to receive normal push notifications via ESPN, Facebook, Twitter and text messages. I would glance at my phone when I would receive a text message, fearing there would be a list of sports updates on the lock screen as well.
I got home without my wife or anyone telling me the outcome, unlike Seinfeld, and watched (teared up slightly) the L.A. Kings win the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history.
During the game, I noticed some awesome moments of fatherhood.
