    Indiana State Police arrested a Chicago man Wednesday afternoon after he was found driving completely nude and masturbating on the Indiana Toll Road.

    http://www.nwitimes.com/articles/2007/0 ... 132697.txt

    Police were called about the man driving eastbound around 1:30 p.m. Trooper Al Martinez stopped a green 1994 Toyota at the 1.47 mile marker about three miles east of the Angola exit in Steuben County.

    The driver identified as Sean P. McCormick, 37 of Chicago was completely nude with petroleum jelly on his hands. When asked why he was traveling like that, McCormick said he felt comfortable driving in the nude and was on his way to Ohio to visit his mother.

    McCormick was arrested for indecent exposure and taken to Steuben County Jail.
    Pappy???

    Just went running and thought about how addicted I am. I have to go to a birthday party, but I'll come back on and give my list.

    I think the NFL Network airs all of the pre-season games for every team eventually during the week they are played (but they can't air them all live since so many are occurring at the same time). So a pre-season game that took place on Friday or Saturday night may not be televised on NFL Network until, say Tuesday afternoon, or something like that.[/quote]

    Thanks for the input Oz and Ruthless. It looks like they broadcast on FSN Pittsburgh
    as well as KDKA, so I'm hoping I can find a place that has the Direct TV sports pack,
    then I might have a chance of seeing both games.

    Sorry Jig, but the airing of Steeler games on FSN is subject to the blackout rules for folks like us outside of the area, just like the live press conferences on Tuesdays.... I have the sports pack. The games are listed. But they are blacked out...

    What exactly are those blackout rules? I know that there are blackout rules for games in a local market that do not sell out, but all Steeler games, preseason included, are sell outs, so why would games be blacked out outside of the Pittsburgh market but broadcast locally? Just wondering...

    According to the folks at Directv, the league refuses to allow live broadcasts on those channels to people that don't get it (that channel) on thier local service. (I called to complain about it...) For example, the live broadcast of Tomlins' PC is blacked out, but I get to see the re-airing at 6:30 on FSN Pitt. And the pre-season games are blacked out because they are live also... Bad deal, but that's the way it is.

    Just like in baseball, I can't see the Pirate or Pen games that are televised on FSN Pitt, but those within the market area can. Conversely, while I can get the Reds games here on FSN Ohio (like today, against the Yankees), you guys cannot...

    Much of the time, live pro games on the sports pack are blacked out outside of the local markets... The only thing that I have noticed over past years that doesn't seem to be affected is college football.

    How about going to work with my wife just to check "Steeler news" (this site), because the internet is down at home? Does that mean I'm addicted?

    ...That would be a stretch for me ff, but congratulations, consider yourself "addicted"...

    It may not count as "Steeler" football, but I love it all.... I'm finding myself watching the Big Ten Network at this moment... Alamo Bowl from last year: Penn St. v Texas A & M...
