I’m just going to go ahead and admit this right here and now…my husband was right about something.
I know…I know…I never thought the day would come either, but, alas, the man proved me wrong and came through big time on Sunday when the “big game” (Steelers versus Bengals) was knocked off the local airwaves by the traveling Bills.
For weeks, the husband kept telling me some guy he works with told him he could watch any football game online for free.
I scoffed and snorted….yeah, right. And, we’ll probably be part of some class-action suit someday, too. Ever heard of Napster, big guy?
But…desperate times call for desperate measure (and maybe a bit of rule bending/breaking) so we surfed over to www.channelsurfing.net and they had all kinds of live streaming video — anything you could ever want to watch.
I still didn’t think we’d get to watch the game. Surely the NFL powers-that-be would have shut this site down already.
Nope. We watched the whole game Online Sunday afternoon on my laptop computer.
Sure, it was small and not the best resolution — when we chose the “full screen” mode it was really fuzzy — but it was better than radio or spending a beautiful day in some dark bar.
My husband got excited scrolling through the site at all the hockey games and other sporting events available for your FREE viewing pleasure. He’s going to have to fight me for the laptop though because I noticed the TLC channel — one of the things I actually miss about cable.
