NFL Sunday Ticket Just Got Better

Well, not the Ticket actually but the way in which we watch it. Directv has recently rolled out its new service that allows you to watch a show in one room, pause it, and pick it up in another. It also allows for only one DVR to be watched on up to 15 TV's, and if each TV has its own DVR then you can access any DVR from any TV in the house meaning that the recorded viewing capacity in each room in my house just quadrupled.

For Sunday Ticket Subscribers this is a Godsend. Now I can watch Bradford get plowed under anywhere in my house and dont have to record the game on each DVR in order to watch it anywhere in the house. And for a 4 hour time slot recorded in HD this rocks!

The DVR space required for this was tremendous so I only recorded the game in one room and then I was stuck watching it in that room - well no more! So I guess that the Rams will get my share of the Ticket this year too, dangit. It seems like every year at this time I get the resolve NOT to spend $400 on them but then something happens to change that, and here we are again. Hopefully this year it will be worth it.

#80 is Number 1

Isaac Bruce came home to retire as he should. It turned my stomach to see him in Whiner gear, something that never should have happened but for Coach's desire to keep the team winningless. He and Holt formed the best WR tandem in the league IMHO, and it will just be a matter of time before Holt comes back home too, if only for one day also. Bruce will always be #1 in my heart, for putting up with all the unbearable years of bad players and terrible QBs and even worse Coaches. This year we will make him proud and bring something else back to the Gateway - the championship is coming back to St Louis too. YEAH!
