I guess taping the soccer game wouldn't have worked, to have someone see their house, or watching it down at the local Sports Bar wasn't an option?!  HA!  They only appear serious, and the closer it gets to their 'drop dead date' the more they will panic Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl.  I have to share - we were selling a house in CA, and I was home from work sick.  The house was still showed - I slept through it all - and they did see the master bedroom and bath, which I had picked up before they arrived.  Hey, we wanted that house sold, and it was!

Well, if they really really needed to move, they probably could have moved their showing appointment earlier. Or missed the first 1/2 hour of the game. Or somehow figured out how to do both.

I was showing an overpriced luxury home when I called the seller to tell them that I was running 15 minutes late for the appointment.

They were not happy. He told me to "forget it', "not bother".  The house had been on the market 2 years+.

So I skipped it.
