It's kind of a gloomy, chilly day here in Texas.
Just perfect for settling in and watching
the 2 NFL playoff games.
In a perfect world
we would just pick up the remote,
point it at the TV
open a beer or a Kool-aid and enjoy the game.
Here on the boat we have a direct TV
that was bought by both crews.
For $10 a month
we get to enjoy 999 channels but
because of the particular "package" that was purchased
we can not receive the channels that broadcast the football games.
I can watch the speed channel and Nascar today
until my eyes roll back in their sockets
but no football.
Since it's playoff time we took matters
into our own hands.
We bought a rabbit ear antenna for $9.99
and 100 ft of coax cable at Radio Shack.
We ran the wire through the galley
and out the back hatch.
We went up one deck and hooked our wire
to our $9.99 antenna that we had professionally installed
on a 5 gallon bucket.
It's game time.
