During a break in play in Monday night's Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, the Rockets invited two fans onto the court to play a modified version of tic-tac-toe for a prize pack.
What followed is two people completely failing to deploy even the slightest bit of strategy in their placement of X's and O's.
The fan in charge of the X's passes up an opportunity to ensure a victory by creating two winning spaces for himself, and the fellow putting down the O's responds by refusing to complete a tic-tac-toe that was laid out right in front of him.
The pair should be granted some leeway though, as it is probably hard to employ your brains full logical capabilities when you are primarily focused on not embarrassing yourself in an arena full of people.
