So here's the straight dope. My buddy and noted SI forum lurker says he "absolutely has to go to work" tomorrow due to a must attend back-to-school night. I disagree and contend that with a little bit of contortion of the truth that he will be able to liberate himself from the shackles of being a responsible adult and go surf tomorrow (and still make back to school night). In the infinite wisdom of the SI forum, I am hoping that he will find a suitable excuse. Ready, go.
