I’ve not been following football too closely since getting out of fantasy football. And,
having already been heartbroken by the Mariners during their 118-win (just not the right games) season, I’ve been trying not to think too much about the Seahawks’ progression. For example, I spent last Saturday afternoon working on my bike, replacing both tires, the disc pads, and the entire drive train. When I kept poking my head in to “check up” on the progress, my spouse offered to turn on her car radio so I could listen in. Kids should not be present when a male is working on a mechanical apparatus and listening to a sporting event. Inappropriate language will ensue.
Today, I went riding, with a brief stop at work to check the Denver-Steelers score and check up on the beta test I started Friday. Afterwards, I planned to spend the first part fo the game at Fry’s looking for parts to build Frankenbox into a PVR.
has been crashing with greater frequency.
Cloning the hard disk with Frankenbox took two days because we had two seasons of 24, but ultimately it was something more serious and the box is essentially dead. Because ReplayTV’s technical support has been pretty clueless in the past, and they announced they’re getting out of the DVR unit business and I don’t want to pay for
TiVo ‘s commercials, I’m looking at rolling my own box.
Fry’s turned out to be a bust, and it looks like their Renton store is going to close soon: I can’t find stuff, boxes are mislabeled, and the shelves often have repackaged returns (and also mispriced). After a half hour, I gave up and walked to the TV section to check the score: Seahawks 17, Panthers 7 in the 2nd. Okay, it’s possibile they might not lose this one.
Now, it’s the start of the fourth quarter, Seahawks are up by 20 points. Although it’s theoretically possible a reenactment of The Heidi Game could occur, the look on the faces of the Carolina players says the game’s over.
