Pause the future

I was watching Super Bowl XLIX on my tablet using NBC’s live sports app, but had to attend a meeting during the middle of the third quarter.
So I paused the game, hoping to resume it later without spoiler.
Fortunately, nobody in Hong Kong mentioned anything about the game to me, and the app is robust enough to replay everything, including commercials.
After the meeting I went straight to solitary confinement and finished the rest of the game around midnight Arizona time.

Tom Brady threw his second interception when I paused the game; the world knew the rest before I resumed it.

I wonder if this can be an interesting HCI research topic.
