This time change crap was instituted to help farmers have more light to work the fields, and plant/harvest crops, hence springtime ahead, falltime back. You would think that with the invention of the lightbulb, the need for extra daylight would cease, but the powers to be continue to keep this system alive. It should be abolished, and just go with the natural time all year long.

I think this is kept alive because of the school kids. They will be going to school in the light as opposed to the dark.

I think they will change it in April.
I'm having troubles with it too even if the games here are now starting at 1 AM. But having games 2 nights in a row until 4 AM and have to wake up early to get to work isn't easy.
But it's the Rangers
