It’s like every year FIRST is doing their level best to make it more painful to watch Einstein finals. This one is actually not the worst example ever, but it still makes me ask: Seriously?
Seriously. I don’t like being that guy, but what am I even watching? Everything is being dragged out, with the gaps being filled with completely asinine stuff that nobody wants to see. Just show the d*** matches.
A side note: I’ve also heard that some or most of the delay was from sunlight being on the field and interfering with vision calibration, just like 2017. From the pictures I saw of the field, that seems plausible.
I offer the following as an example of the amazing level of competition we all have borne witness to.
To offset the negativity, though, I was watching some of the round robin matches on and off earlier today, and I was quite impressed by how smoothly it was run. Very interesting to watch.
