Winter is Coming

Sorry, this isn't a Game of Thrones post…. Now that half the internet has left, on with the topic. 

Baseball season is over, I don't even care if the NBA ever plays again, my Giants are rolling along nicely the NFL, and as far as the NHL goes my Rangers are staggering along like always.

This is the time of year for me when I have to pine for seeing my teams. My day job (and living in Metro Atlanta) means I only get to see the Giants on Sunday or Monday nights. As for the Rangers, if they're on Versus (or whatever it's called this week) or the occasional game that I can catch on the weekend, so much the better.

Unlike baseball, I won't pay for either internet or cable tv viewing of either the NFL or the NHL. I don't want DirecTV (and if I went the internet route, I'd be paying an equivalent amount to having the service set up), so NFL Sunday Ticket is out. I could get the NHL pay per view, but I don't think it's worth what they charge, though I will admit, at least I can choose whether I wanted to watch games on tv, or on my iPhone or internet.

I guess my love of hockey is nowhere near as strong as my love of baseball. I think nothing about buying the internet streaming of games, plus the iOS apps. This comes as no surprise to those that know me, but I wanted to state for the record that I knew it as well.
