    I lived a few years in the Mountain time zone. The 2 hours earlier for games was great. As you said, you had your whole day to do stuff.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB

    You mean there is another timezone?

    What the hell do you guys do with your mornings?

    As far as CBS yesterday, I have the ticket, but they blacked out the Steeler game on the ticket because it was supposed to be shown on CBS. We didn't have a morning game on CBS, so at 1PM they turn on the 4th quarter of the saints game then they play that out until the end, then they play out the OT Jets game until the end. We missed the whole 1st quarter of the game because it was blacked out on Directv and CBS decided we would want to see the end of those two crappy games. I did call directv and they cut $20 off my bill though. But I don't care about the effin money, I got Sunday Ticket so I wouldn't ever miss a Steeler game.

    I love being on the West Coast on the weekends. But I always thought MNF was weird having games start while you're still working. I've been in CA during a recent NFL draft and I had mixed emotions on that one. I hated missing all the predraft and the first bunch of picks. But it was kinda cool that when I started watching, the Steelers had the next pick.

    I've also been in Hawaii during football season. That's perfect. You get the game out of the way and have the whole day.

    I wouldn't mind trying Chadman's dilemma of watching the game at work. That kind makes football season like March Madness for us.
