A, B, C, ... D?

Once again I am faced with a difficult decision: choosing between watching the postseason baseball game or the final 2016 presidential debate.

I do suppose that I could choose to watch neither and find something more constructive to do, but that is unlikely.

A -- abstain
B -- baseball
C -- cigar
D -- debate

Some of the pros and cons of each:

Abstain -- In reality, it's probably not gonna happen. The only way I end up watching neither is if we decide to go out and do something else.

Baseball -- So far, all 3 three of the Cubs vs Dodgers games have been good games. Although the final score of the first game was lopsided, the game was close until the bottom of the 8th. Even though my team is no longer playing, baseball is still baseball and the build up to the Fall Classic and the Series itself is the ultimate in the game.

Cigar -- I get to choose to enjoy a good cigar if I decide on watching the game. I have to watch it on my phone via the Fox Sports Go app and sit outside, but B & C are options that can go together.

Debate -- I won't say that I am uninterested in the debate. I will say that I don't believe it will change my mind. I know that I will be seeing parts of it in clips for the next week or so and that I can watch it later or read the transcript.

It's looking like it will be a B and C kind of night.

What are your options for the evening and what will you be doing during the presidential debate?

I usually can't stand to watch debates. All they really tell you is how fast someone can recall trivia. Not what kind of leader they will be. Trump has turned them into comedy shows.

Baseball is the better option.
