Now that you can see the commercials on line, I will probably go to a movie timing it so I am home before the end of eh game and the drunks get on the road.
I've never considered that, but you are correct....all the sports bars would be emptying.....Imagine the road rage possibilities...lol....I would never be able to concentrate on the game, at one of those crowded places.....

Thanks Dog.

Be careful out there . The weather is supposed to be brutal and it sounds like your general area will get the brunt of it.

Drove 15 miles over snow-covered roads to dig out my mother, only to find one of her neighbors with a snow-blower already did it!

Some lady was shoveling her driveway so I helped her instead. Didn't want the trip to be a TOTAL waste!

So size DOES matter, huh?
that and it's a tubed TV, not flat panel... it's technically a 3rd hand tv; my brother (who owned the house we're in now) got the tv in exchange for forgiveness of debt owed by a friend. The ancillary tvs are smaller flat panels, adn this one is still working ok, so i'm loath to replace it just to get something cooler. i think i'm going to be losing that argument sooner rahter than later. We've taken many trips through Abt "just browsing" the tv section. i think hubby is waiting for me to get sick of his talking about it and tell him 'just get the damn thing...'

The Devils and Rangers are playing hockey at Yankee Stadium today. I don't understand why.

I've been away and have been behind on Topix. I just read some replies from the advice columns and saw a post from Ang on 1/16. That made me very sad.
