    Cheesey hope all goes well man.

    As for the game, Ive bummed Direct TV and a 53" HDTV from a lady friend... i cant tell you how sad it was to ask her if i could borrow her TV for sports. I'm having to go to a girls house to get my football fix... do you see what you've done to me you cruel dictator NFL Network!!!

    dont get me wrong i like the ladies, they really rev my engine... but she has better equipment than me and its giving me severe TV envy.

    Here Ye, Here Ye...I hereby relenquish my man card.

    I will watch at a buds house who has the Network. I almost made the switch from Charter this week, but no internet on the DISH. I wish I had an alternative to just dropping Charter until they offer the package in some form. I say shame on anyone who is stalling the process, and double shame to the NBA for not playing Bucks games in Western Wisconsin.

    I switched from charter to direct tv, and kept my charter internet. Charter, and most cable companies, offer WAY better internet then satellites. There's no reason you can't keep both though . . . either way, the internet will still cost you the same for the internet, unless you have some kind of bundle package.

    I'll be watching alone with my Scotch. I personally like watching games alone so I can concentrate on the game instead of entertaining guests.

    If they are winning I'll be drinking The Maccallan, if they are losing I'll stick to the Johnnie Walker Red Label or Teacher's Highland Cream. :) If they are winning at half time I'll have a nice cigar and I can honestly say life doesn't get much better than that my friends.

    I got an exam on Thursday, and after that it's coming straight home and turning on TSN to get ready for the game.

    Exam should be over about a couple of hours before kickoff, but then I'm sure I'll get stuck in rush hour on the way back home. I'm hoping the weather isn't bad, so I can get home before kickoff.

    If your not used to drinking Scotch Whisky it might be a bit rough at first. I don't think anybody drinks Scotch for the first time neat and really likes it. Unless they are used to drinking liquors neat that is. If you do break the barrier and start to get a taste for it, it's a rewarding complex drink. I have a fairly well stocked bar and I rarely drink anything else but a decent Scotch. Occasionally Midori and Milk. Sounds gross, tastes good.

    I don't have a name for this so I'll going to start calling it "The McGee" in honor of the late Packer Great who obviously had some Scottish ancestry.

    The McGee: Serve in a Double Old Fashioned / Rocks Glass
    4oz Scotch - Go mid grade cause your tasting a lot of scotch in this drink so you want a decent palatable scotch.
    4 dashes Angostura Bitters - adjust to taste
    2 marchino cherries (adds a sweet reward for when you finish your glass)

    Quick, easy and delicious. This one's for you Max! Cheers!

    Cheesey, please give your wife my very best....

    Any woman that can put up with you for (about) a quarter of a century should be elevated to sainthood.
    I shall email the Pope directly. :thumbsup:

    As to watching the game, I shall be at home and for the first time in my life cheering for the Cowboys! :p

    Sitting on my couch in front of my 46 inch LCD TV, on The Sports Network (Canada's ESPN affiliate) in High Def. Also working from home tomorrow so I can make a nice smoked brisket.

    Bad news for me. I just found out that the game is being blacked out for me, even though I get Channel 5, because I'm not in the Packers' "home market." They've never done this before. I wonder if the channel is just going to be blank during the game.
