Over the weekend, I was at a party. At this party, it had been decided that we would DVR the UFC PPV event and watch it hours after it had completed (once everyone had arrived).

The protocol was simple: Don't go searching for fight results and, if you happen to see them accidentally, don't ruin it for anybody else. Keep it to yourself. I'm pretty good at following directions, especially rules dealing with sports fandom, but the more I drink the worse I get.

I ended up missing the first round of the headlining fight, although I saw the rest of the card, when I got into a conversation with someone out on the back patio. When I came back in, the second round was starting and I was glancing at Twitter. I saw someone mention that Anderson Silva had a good second round, so I said out loud "Twitter says Silva had a good second round."

Dead silence. I was even shocked about what had come out of my mouth. Before I could even apologize for this small spoiler, Silva had Chael Sonnen on the ground and it was obvious that the fight was over. If I could've bitten my tongue for another minute, I wouldn't have spoiled anything for anyone. Needless to say, I was not everyone's favorite person for the rest of that night.

The lesson here is not to record live sporting events and watch them later. It's impossible to avoid the spoilers. Oh, also, don't drink heavily when you're in a situation where you need to bite your tongue or act responsible.
