    Nice post, thanks for the info Ernie!

    I might wait until the New Year, but I have a feeling I will get sucked back into getting a TV if the team is as promising as I think they are shaping up to be.

    What are you gaining by not having a TV? Are you splitting atoms all the sudden?

    It's that oil bubble thread.

    Roscoe is turning into the hardcore economics professors that have candles for light and live like little house on the prairie.

    I think in one of the threads he talked about getting around with a unicycle because a regular bicycle was "wasteful". :)

    Although that was supposed to be a big loss, but i liked what i saw. A lot of movement inside. A lot of missed lay ups... I am sure such misses will not happen again. But the team looks ok.

    I would have survived with a loss... that was not a must win game

    I'd have to agree with you on that one. We are about 100 games away from a must win game.

    I went through my no tv days back in college, not by choice. I did not really notice much of a difference in productivity during the times where I did have it versus did not.

    I haven't had a television for about 8 years now. I watch some movies on the computer, and spend a little more time on the internets to make up for my missing entertainment. Overall, I find it to be a positive. I spend more time with people, play cards with the family, and otherwise occupy the time I would have spent watching people on TV live their lives.

    I should be like you cause sometimes (other than Pistons games and other games) there's absolutely nothing to watch. I don't care for tv shows that come on local tv or cable other than True Blood (about people and vampires living together in the country). I HATE :censored: TV!!!

    I haven't been without a TV in the last 48 years... even if I am not watching it, it serves as background fodder on those days when I am immersed in my work on the computer.....sometimes I may even have the radio or music station on my computer on and still have the TV on.....:sssh:

    Dre - Do you remember when all broadcast channels used to cut off at around 2am? Played the National Anthem and that was it, test pattern after that. Its come a long way from 2,4 and 7 which never came it right through rabbit ears.

    Guess thats why its hard for me to give it up, too many channels now. I commend those of you that do.

    I remember at the end of each day, they would say something like' And that ends our 4,783rd day of broadcasting. They actually had a tally til about 10,000 broadcast days. Also watching the jets fly the horizon while they signed off with the national anthem was cool
