The olympics that is. This weekend has been a pretty solid block of watching on all the channels that carry it for me. Unfortunately, i was not consulted about the schedule and it appears as though there are going to be games broadcast while I’m at work. This will be a first for me. During the last few olympics I basically just eschewed school, or I watched on a small portable TV we had when I worked in an emergency room (don’t worry, i only watched when there was nothing important to take care of).
I’ve been trying to figure out how to deal with balancing work and the olympics and I was thinking about the best ways to overdose on the games without having to take off weeks of work. One option was a tivo, but I’d like to avoid that since I don’t watch much TV and I’d like to keep it that way. The other was to buy a small TV and bring it into work and hope that the reception will be good for the local affiliate channels. However, I’d like to avoid that since it’ll cost money and since it’ll probably only show stuff at certain set hours instead of giving me the constant stream of athletic love that I’m looking for.
Anyone else out there got a different system to do this? Are there any sites out there that are streaming out the games live (or even delayed, i’m not picky)? Ideas/Suggestions would be very appreciated.
