I've been out in Washington, DC the last few days for a wedding and some vacation and I came to a realization. There is such a drastic difference in viewing sports as far as just the different time zones. I always knew about it, but everytime I come back east it really hits me. For example, the 49ers played at 1pm out here on Sunday. Normally that's not a big deal, but this week it was the early game so I didn't have football until then. Then last night, Monday Night Football ended close to midnight. Consider that another reason to enjoy the west coast.
Where it has really gotten odd for me is in posting to the site. I'd wake up out here around 9 or 10 am, and when I would go to the site, obviously just the Nuggets are up. I've found myself posting some stuff a bit earlier the last couple days because of that.
In the past we've done some demographic type posts, but I wanted to go with a different angle on this. What time zone do you live in? I've attached a poll and if you're outside the big 4, please specify in the comments if you get a chance. I'd imagine most folks are pacific time zone, but I'm curious just how many are not. If we end up with a huge chunk living on the east coast, I'm tempting to start scheduling morning posts a bit earlier.
Right now, the Nuggets go up at 3am pacific/6am eastern, the first substantive post goes up at 8amPST/11amPST and the next post often goes up around 11amPST/2pmEST. Depending on the results of the poll (and of course comments from everybody here), I might make some changes. Also, this poll is not being distributed out to Google News, Yahoo! Sports and so forth. All readers are important, but I'd like to think if you're coming directly to the site you're probably one of our more frequent visitors, and the people this would most affect.
