Game B starts at 4:00. Game A starts at 5:00. How much hair will the Parents of Children A & B pull out while attempting to make it to both games?

Problem 2.

The math isn't so hard. The answer to each question can be summed up in 3 words - "All of them". It's accepting the answers that sucks.

Glad to not be you this weekend!
