There's not going to be a lot of sleeping going on for me during this tournament. Just naps at opportune times.

I'll wake up for the "big" games... USA, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Czech but will probably only catch the last two periods of the others ( i.e 5 am wake up ).

I'll be going to bed early the night before, waking up 45 minutes before the games, getting Tim Hortons, watching the game then having a 2-3 hour nap after.

Wake up. Staying awake till 6-7AM kills your sleep cycle. At least you can get decent sleep by going to bed around 11-12 and waking up at 4AM.

And since I have nothing to do all holiday, I'll be waking up to watch all the games.

Wake up, watch it at 4, then go to work, then get in a car accident on the way home and die.

Forget the Mayans, this WJC is how my world will end.

Canada's first 3 games start 5:30am local time for me and the game against Russia will be at 10:00am which isn't bad. I stay up fairly late as it is so i will try to get 3-4 hours before the 5:30am games then sleep for 2-3 hours after the games.

Canada vs. Russia will be starting at 11pm local time on the evening of the 31st, which means I ring in 2013 during the game. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Two years ago Canada scored on Sweden exactly at our midnight. "3... 2... 1... HAPPY NEW YE- ****!"
Though we ended up winning so that made up for it.

Wish it was in NA again, it's way more fun watching the games at night. Swedens comeback last New years eve vs Russia was also pretty great, everyone watching it drunk as hell... and I somehow ended up watching the OT in some strangers house.

They're all on when I'm supposed to be at work, so neither.

Hockey memories during the holidays, you can't beat it! (I recall one new year's eve twelve or thirteen years ago getting my car stuck on a desolate -20 C highway hundreds of kilometres north of Prince George in northern B.C. Grizzly bear country (I saw a moose!) and having a Korean couple being in the 18th car to come by (and the first to stop!) to offer assistance that frigid night, giving me a ride to the nearest roadside motel an hour down the road, where I awoke the next morning, new year's day, to watch the Canada vs. Sweden game before venturing to call a tow truck company.

Other holiday hockey memories: I grew up watching the great Montreal Canadiens dynasty teams play the Soviets on New Year's Eve. The fact that I can watch Canada versus Russia on New Year's Eve this winter simply due to the fluke circumstance of having taken a job in the earliest time zone in the world is pure joyful providence!

There's no sport that I wake up to watch in the middle of the night and WJC isn't near the top of the list anyway. I'll watch the games in the morning or after work so I can skip intermissions and commercial breaks too. This applies to NHL too.

Last time when I woke up in the middle of the night to watch something was in 2004 (WC) and 2002 (olympics in SLC).

I used to make the drive from Prince Rupert to Prince George way more than I wanted to. I always had a fear of breaking down, although not related to Grizzly bears. Glad I never had to experience that.

hmm they should switch around canada's and finland's game times.. then I'd get games around noon instead of 9am and you guys would get earlier night games (east) or even before midnight games in the west

In eastern time zone (Toronto)...

Games I don't have to work (Boxing Day, weekends) I will watch on PVR whenever I get out of bed.

Games I do have to work I will PVR, get up at 6am and watch before leaving for work at 8:30.

Russia game Dec 31 (9:30am) we already have the green light to watch at work.

I do not understand in the least those that say watching it live at 4:30am is any different than watching on PVR without knowing the result. Exact same feeling and you get to skip commercials/any boring intermission segments, plus you know, sleep. But hey, to each their own!
