when the Steelers aren't playing?

I'm still in front of the TV watching games and checking out my fantasy teams on my laptop.

You?

I usually watch the browns get spanked with my father-in-law. I feel bad for the
guy, but he should have chosen a better team. :twisted:

Our Sundays are identical. I will be pumped up for the Sunday night game. Being a yinzer living in the hoosier state, I enjoy rooting against the Colts almosts as much as I enjoy pulling for the Steelers.

The Ravens/Eagles game will have the bulk of my attention, but I do my own version of the Red Zone channel here.

I will have the NFL home page on one of my Firefox tabs. When a team is in the Red Zone their little game box at the top of the screen starts glowing red. If I have a fantasy player on the team in the RZ I switch to that game. :oops:

Sounds like a sweet set-up. The NFL Sunday ticket is awesome!!!

Housekeeping. Gotta do laundry and seal the windows for the winter. Busy week. Yes will be playing HOB Cleveland Tuesday and the Cavaliers will be playing home on Wednesday. I will be in attendance for both.

Might keep an eye on the Clowns annual "humiliating loss to a team they should beat at home". But, more likely, will be scratching the itch for the "other football" and will watch the MLS Cup to see if the Crew can get over on the Red Bulls.

I try to watch as much football as possible... But, the little lady is a football widow, so when the Steelers aren't on, I try to let her pick what she wants to do.

Fortunately she almost always wants to watch at least one game...

Today'll be spent cruising the net, and doing some busy work for my job. Hopefully Jets/Titans will be good. The 4:00er in this area is Panthers/Falcons... so if i do anyting during the day it'll be around 4:00.

Slacker...I had that done a month ago!

Of course it gets colder here sooner. :cry:

My Sunday is a lot like yours, except I don't try to create a tool that's already out there. I just use the Red Zone channel. :P

Parts of my Sunday are spent taking calls from works, it's all computer based so it's all good. Of course I follow the fantasy football like a madman. I'm a lock for the playoffs in one league, sucking :moon in the Planet league, and in a must win game today in my College Alumni league in order make it to the playoffs...

Most of my work will be done on second floor windows and I'm not getting on a ladder just to put up plastic, so I can do most of what I need to do from the inside.

The Clowns are in the refs back pocket today. Just called the guy blocking Fat @$$ Rogers for holding while they ignored the very obvious face mask that practically ripped off Green's head. The league is still trying to grant the Clowns some love to save face because they assumed that the Clowns were actually going to do something this year.

Waiting for the outcome of the first half and...the Tex-Anns are threatening but probably won't do $hit because they are the Tex-Anns

The Red Zone channel takes you to the game they want to take you to. I go to the games I want to go to. Big difference. So I can stay parked on the game I wanna watch unless one of my guys is in position to score. :)

I only put plastic on the inside. It's the stuff you put on and then shrink with a blow dryer.

Went to church, helped Mrs. Fan with her homework, off to a Charger fan BBQ, then bed. I'm off this week so I will stay up late if anyone wants to go to the chat room.

Got the outside windows done.

Called the Clowns flame-out. Guess the Rattards are at least a concern now.

The Crew did get over on the Red Bulls. Whether you give a $hit about the "other football" or not, I will submit that the Crew winning is a good omen for the Steelers: another team in Black and Gold wins a "football" title...and I say that paves the way for the other team in Black and Gold that plays "American Football".

Here's to the good omen!!! :Cheers :Cheers :Cheers

Well, when the Steelers aren't on, I can at least not try and rush the kids into the car out of church, they can take their time. :lol: But, I may do lunch out wsith the family, then plop in front of the TV and find two or three games on sunday ticket that can maintain my attention. Browns and Ravens were two of them today.

Wake up ... got chores to do - "Don't think about the game yet".

Sometimes have to go to work ... "Be efficient, focus on the job at hand, don't think about the game yet".

Church - "Don't think about the game now, you're gonna fry if you do!"
- Church always runs late ... "Don't curse about it, that's just wrong!"

Get home ... having missed the 1st quarter (Central Time) - sit down - GAME TIME!

Now this season has been great for me ... so many 3:15 games ... church can run late and I don't have a stroke every Sunday!

Word up BH! Crew represented...glad to see them finally get over the hump! And our boy Friedel played a nice game versus Man United this weekend...held them to 0-0 tie...he's still doing well across the pond.

My Sunday was spent like stlrzd. I've used your same setup for about 3 years now. Just change to the game that my guy is in the red zone...but I still keep red zone channel up on my laptop too, so I get best of both worlds.

Not sure what's happened but I'm slowly getting to a point where the Steelers are the only NFL game I watch each week. It was never that way for me growing up. Sunday was yard work. Now I find I love watching college football all day on Saturday and Mrs. Ghost and I even popped down to a local sports bar to drink some beers and watch a bunch of games mid afternoon. We do that a lot.
