Don’t. Tell. Me. The. Score.

In last weekend’s New York Times Magazine, Chuck Klosterman discusses an issue every soccer fan has espn world cupgrappled with: the ethics of spoiling match results. Klosterman concludes that “a live event is a form of breaking news” and that therefore no one is morally obliged to keep quiet about the World Cup around friends and coworkers planning to watch games on DVR.

Fair enough, I suppose. But why ruin someone’s viewing experience if you can avoid it? If I hear the score of a game I’ve recorded, it’s usually because one of my so-called friends decided to play a hilarious prank.
