    This is when you need another TV in the kitchen…you watch what you want and you are close to snacks there…so it’s a win win……

    Or a TV in any other room, such as the bedroom. Or better yet, DVR the game.

    Exactly. My wife has an extra TV in her hobby room. She doesn’t use it very often, but every now and then our interests are different so we never have an argument on what we’re going to watch (and there’s always the recorder).

    This is bowl season. Football gets top priority.

    WTF, not that I’m wealthy (by no means am I) but I have six TV’s of which two r not in use & they only have one? what’s up w/that? They need one just for Fred to keep him entertained while they r out – leave the TV on so Fred has company.

    In the UK there are license fees for each TV and radio. Anyone from the UK: let us know what they are. And, I don’t know what cable or sat. costs either. Comments, UK folks? Extra TVs could get expensive there.

    “Hey, Fred! Let’s head to the pub…”

    Or how about this? You’re watching a RECORDING as it is. That can be watched any time while the house guest is there. A live event is only live once.

    He needs to go to the pub where they might be showing the big match on a big screen TV.

    Thank you! And when someone asks so nicely about something that means a lot to them, they should not be dismissed that way. It’s not about sports, it’s about consideration.

    That’s probably a man speaking. I hate football because it goes into overtime and makes other programs late.

    I don’t leave a TV or radio on when I’m gone if my dogs are in our family room. They have plenty of light and there’s enough going on outside (squirrel!, deer!) to keep them from getting bored. However, if I put them in crates in the basement, I always leave a low wattage light on and also the radio.

    @Dr Dave

    Good idea. They can watch the game there, probably on a big screen.

    Good idea. The women can go out for tea, shopping or whatever while he watches the game.

    And that’s probably a woman speaking. It is all about you, isn’t it? You can’t wait or do other things, like he does when it’s important to you.
