Sneaking out

I snuck out the office early this evening to catch Federer versus Murray in the US Open Final.  With luck I would be home by 6pm, one hour into the match.

Well it's 6pm now and I'm in a train stationary in The Bronx.  An earlier train has broken down and is blocking the track.  We've been here 30 minutes so far.

To be honest, I can only remember three other incidents that have caused delays greater than five minutes (and that includes a building collapsing beside the track) so that's about a 1/80 chance of such a delay on a particular trip.  I just hope Murray doesn't wrap it up in three quick sets...
