I like watching with friends so I go out to a good sports bar to watch sports today (obviously I don't watch as much as I once did) . . . heck, I haven't even hooked up the cable in my townhouse; I just get seasons of shows I never got around to seeing from the library -- finally watched Lost and starting Jericho.

Got a decent sized HD TV. Not huge, but big enough for my apartment. May upgrade though since I just got a promotion and raise at work.
Eric Maynor is the worst basketball player I've ever seen.

I had one around ~40 inches, but I just got a great deal on a new 50 inch 1080P HDTV for $700. Just in time for football season. 8-)

Hey, if an unfair history stood in the way of everything we could do to engage the world, or even amuse ourselves, we'd all have to stay at home and read books -- printed on paper from wood that the trees didn't contribute voluntarily I can assure you.

The human species is an infestation that takes everything over and perverts it -- do you think the electrons in your TV volunteered to line up and send you an image?

Right now I'm thinking of Fred Hampton -- anyone know who he was?
People say I'm mellowing with age. Nah.

It is still not possible to formulate a counter-argument -- even if I say... Is so!

:lol: I'm actually going to Game 3 tomorrow. Sucks that the first playoff game in D.C. in 80 years is a 1 PM game on a weekday though, have to burn a personal day to go.

Are you referring to "Black Panther" Fred Hampton?

Yes... it's a long story and I have no idea why I mentioned him here.

I was in his apartment a few hours after the massacre. There was blood everywhere and hundreds of bullet holes in the walls. From shots in not out.

You know what else sucks?

Being paid only a fraction of what your property is actually worth by DC so they can rush and break ground for the new baseball stadium. :evil:
