It is certainly an exciting time to be from Princeton, Indiana! Our star basketball player, Jackie Young is representing the USA in the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics. As exciting as this is, I have had to get a quick lesson in the Olympics, just to be able to watch it!

First of all, using 2020 confuses me, but that's probably just a 'Liberty' thing. Half of the time I don't know what year it is anyway! Second, snd this is a spoiler alert - Japan is in a whole other time zone. Ok, this may seem obvious, but I can't wrap my head around parts of the Tri-State being an hour ahead of Evansville, so there's that.

The bigger picture is that some of the games we really want to watch happen in the middle of the night. Then we wake up to all sorts of spoilers. My city of Princeton has this problem solved - Host a watch party in real-time at the Princeton Theatre and Community Center. Now, this means you will either need to stay awake all night, which I do not recommend. Or you can take a little nap and wake up refreshed for the game at 2:30 AM. Oh, did I mention the game stats at 3:00 AM?

Before you complain, remember that some of us early morning peeps wake up that early everyday! Well, I actually wake up at 3:30 AM, but that is still plenty early! You'll get to see the streets of Princeton in the middle of the night, with zero traffic, and maybe not even a train. Plus, you will get to watch the excitement with the Young family!
