The idea or theory that because of the shift of time zones when traveling, morningwood may occur at an earlier or later time than usually. The name for this untimely morningwood goes by the name of Mr. Sunshine. This effect can be especially bad when traveling on a high school or college trip.
"Thanks to jet lag, I've had an encounter with Mr. Sunshine..."

An easy way to blame ones own short comings on a shift in timezones but not necessarily restricted to having to actually cross said timezones see: NHL 98.

A good excuse for blaming nature (and subconsciously yourself) to cover your inadequacy our shortcomings. Unfortuneatly this falls flat as an excuse if you use it in the same time zone. Note this also can interchanged with "this is a different version to my Playstation Ice Hockey" or "my sight is misaligned"
