I never ever ever leave a game early. I don't care if my team is down 15 with one minute remaining. I don't get to see the games that often, and I want to see every play...win or lose. I don't even go to the refreshment stand during play. I learned my lesson not to do that as a kid when I missed a Rusty Staub three run homer to put the Tigers in the lead. I missed it for a stinking Ball Park frank.
