I'll pony up for the Ticket unless my So Cal brethren want to get together weekly at a bar? Any takers? As for the TV, Sony and Samsung are made in the same factory I think. I've always been partial to plasma but it is dying.

I can hold my own on the drinking............In northwest Arkansas we get KC games and Dallas games the most. There have been a couple of years where it hardly paid to have the NFL package with all the Steelers games on the regular TV but I hate to miss them and I hate the bar cause of all the background noise when I am trying to watch the game. At the house I show folks the door if they become a problem

Dude! Speak for yourself! I am a home theater enthusiast and have been for years...finally upgraded my 57" RPTV for a new Plasma...research shows that plasmas have plenty of life (20+ years if you view 8 hours a day, every day) and NO TV is built to last, man! Plus, plasma's still are tops in picture quality, although LCD's have been making headway in the last few years.

Always thought the Sunday ticket was a waste. It's so much better if you can find a good bar and watch it with some cool people - the price is cheaper in the end anyway; unless we win a lot because I tend to buy rounds when we do well.

Completely agree...the social aspect of going to a good bar or club to watch is worth it instead of sitting, alone, on your couch.

Honestly...some of my friends have HD, and I personally just don't see enough difference to spend the kind of money (for the size I would want) on an HD. I'm way, WAY too cheap. I don't like spending money on things I don't need...I leave that to my tech geek man. Just give me a beer and a game and I smile, I'm a simple girl!

Besides...I figure by me saving up my money I'll be able to afford the top of the line 3-D television headsets that I'm sure they'll come out with in 10 years lol.

So true I just had flashbacks of when us Steelers fans took over Denver for that Monday night game last year - we took over their bar first, then their whole stadium! Never seen fans (broncos) that freaked out and bummed. I love it!

And SteelCityMom - have you watched a hockey game on a nice HDTV yet? You will change your mind - you can see little ice chips and beads of sweat detail - makes the game 100% better IMO.

I have not seen a hockey game yet in HD...just Steelers games. And sure it's nice...but I've always been cheap. I just didn't see the big deal. I don't care about sweat drops and every single blade of grass lol. I'm satisfied just being able to see the games.

Hell...I probably wouldn't even have cable if it wasn't for hockey.

I could easily drink up $400. in a few weeks, gotta eat too. If I go to the bar it's usually to watch the morning game and afternoon game, then depending on who's (buying ) playing in the evening game if I stay or not. But the wife isn't to impressed if I come stumbling home every weekend. Kind of a toss up right now.

Last week I went to an Islanders vs Rangers game at Madison Square Garden . But not at the arena but the theatre . They were showing the hockey game in 3D on a movie theatre screen. The 3D was great !!!!! Better than Avatar ! , lol
