Default How do you feel when you miss a game?

I havent missed watching a game since my early teens. Its been about 10 years since Ive missed one. I always found a way to watch even if it wasnt on TV. This weekend I have to do a tradeshow and both CBS's are airing the Ravens, even the Harrisburg one since its a secondary market. I usually DVR when at shows and just ignore everyone until I get home to watch it but I dont even have that option.

I cant hit up a bar and I cant get Sunday Ticket where I live. However I will be able to listen on the radio on the way home for the 2nd half!

Which leads me to this question. I know its a very trivial problem in todays world but....How do you all cope when you know you are definitely going to miss a game? It sucks.

I don't know. It's never come to that for me, fortunately. I guess I'd probably jump in the Mon?

I go crazy I hate to miss a game. I try to find a way to live stream it on the computer. All I can say is good luck.

Living in Ohio, if I miss a Steelers game its because the local stations are showing the Browns or Bengals instead (or are blacking out the other time slots because of said teams), so I naturally feel enraged when I miss games and my hatred for such teams rises higher than normal on those days.

That being said, the internet is awesome and I usually find a stream of it online...even if its crappy its at least good for the audio, so its not unlike when NFL.com let you actually listen to the radio broadcasts online for free all those years ago before they got greedy.

My cable company has me miss 1-2 games a year. (Usually just one.) Of all the luck, they didn't show the Bears game a few years ago in the snow when Bettis ran over Urlacher. I was real pissed for missing that one. And a snow game at that! I love watching those. Plus, it was a pivotal game. Last year I got real lucky and they showed all of them. I don't know what they will do for this year yet, but I may try online if all else fails.

Unfortunately due to the military I have missed many a game, sometimes half of a season at once. It sucks! I did my best to get to the internet and try to follow play by play. Just do everything you can to see as many highlights when you get home and read as many articles about the game. I know it isn't like watching it live, but it made me feel a little bit better and somewhat satisfied my football craving.

in almost 20 years of watching our beloved team, I've only missed 2 games because I was on a kickass vacation in Europe so I didn't mind at all.
