    Sunday, November 1 at 2 a.m., we go off of Daylight Savings Time. So, before going to sleep tonight, put your clocks back (earlier) 1 hour so that you don't end up gearing your plans for pregame and game activities inappropriately.

    Mods, if this is not the most appropriate forum for this message, please move.
    I just thought it should go on the most visited Football forum.

    I was thinking about starting a daylight savings time rant thread in NSZ. LOL

    At least this time we get an extra hour, that's better than in Spring.

    We'll leave this here to get the word out and move it tomorrow. I'll stick it so people see it as well. Thanks for the head's up.

    I forgot to set back my clock. I woke up this morning and my clock read 9:40, I felt like a lazy bum. Then I remembered the time change. Sleeping until 8:40 on a Sunday is rare for me, but it did feel good to sleep in a bit. :sleep:

    Yeah, usually I'm up at 5-6, no matter the day of the week.
