There is nothing worse than searching for the remote control when you’re sitting down to a long, relaxing stretch of television-watching. For one thing, how are you going to get the right channel as soon as you sit down? Those new cable and satellite boxes are way too confusing to control manually. Plus, there are way too many channels to cruise these days. Even the most technologically savvy person could struggle navigating the remote. It becomes especially difficult when you’re 97 years old.
According to WestAllisNOW.com via CBSSports.com’s Eye on Baseball Blog, a 97-year-old Brewers fan called 911 on Sept. 26 to report his TV remote stolen. That means all of this went down pre-playoffs, which makes this seasoned veteran even more of a hardcore Brew Crew fan than you might imagine. As we have seen before, there are some pretty committed Brewers fans out there. This guy could be No. 1.
Best of all: The remote was recovered when police arrived to the man’s house, so he was able to proceed with watching the game. Those of you who are thinking that calling 911 is the proper way to find a lost clicker may have to think again. If the gentleman in question wasn’t 97 years old, something tells me he would have found himself in some trouble. However, I’m only speculating. If that’s something you think might work, knock yourself out.Google+
