This popped into my head when Brazil played Germany, and with the way the Brazilian's have started against the Dutch, just solidified the thought.
So pick your favorite non-Michigan team, and imagine they're playing in the semi-finals for their sport. You've got a friend we'll call "Bob", who can't watch the game live, and is DVRing it and bubbling up until later that night.
But you watch it live, and it's a blowout. Over in the first 10 minutes of the game. Soul-crushing. Etc. Etc.
So my question is, do you spare "Bob" the pain of watching the game, "live", and shatter his bubble?
Or do you let him experience it all?
