For $7,500 I'd rather have women perform blumpkins and give them Cambodian creamsicles.

Yeah, who needs life, anyway. I wonder just how much do you have to watch it to save money vs paying for PPV et all the regular way.

NB: I don't even own a TV, sold the last one I had like 3 years ago. Never been happier.

Father's Day just came... kids all asked what I wanted to do for the day...

I watched 3 AMA races and MotoGP. What a perfect day!

The only TV shows I watch are 24, motorcycle races, Family guy. I have TIVO set to record Steve McQueen and Cary Grant movies. I've never subscribed to premium movie channels, I just don't watch them enough.

Faster, Dust to Glory...

My wife and watch 24 as well.

Of course, it has been nice to have for World Cup as well. But other than that, I wish we could just lock it OFF.

We only have basic TV with bunny ears...can't remember the last time that I watched it. I don't really miss it either. We go to my mom's to watch races and shit but that's about it....I'll pass. I could buy lots of trick shit for that amount of money...like lap dances

I am embarrased by how much tv I watch, it can be measured in hours per day. I guess it could also be looked at as a perk of not being married and having kids. I don't believe I have any married friends w/kids that can even watch a 30 program without interuptions. But 7500 even for a tv freak like me is steep.
