Will you be watching the NFL tomorrow? It's always neat to see our sports
(when the players aren't being locked out) played in international locales.

No Scott, it's on Sky Sports 2 live but I will not subscribe any money to Mr Murdoch. When I was working we were a Sky Agent and they were the worst to deal with. A real pain in the posterior.

I would watch it on streaming P2P as I used to watch Indy car & Nascar but I get fed up with the constant buffering even on Sopcast. We can now go Fibre optic which should improve it but it is another £10.00 per month so will wait until my contract comes up for renewal next year and see if I can get a deal.

I see Sky are also showing The Dallas Cowboys v New York giants live straight after the Wembley game.

Ah, the old Murdoch conundrum. We have that here too though most
of his offerings are on low tier cable, ala FOX Soccer, Speed Channel...

In the last two weeks they've lost both the EPL and F1 to NBC Sports (Comcast).
Both signed love term deals but I'm a bit worried about F1 and whether NBC
will retain the commenting crew that's of high quality and show *all* the races live.
I guess we'll find out in the spring. Until then, AbA :)

Edit- Oh, here's an item about the Giants/Cowboys, one of the best rivalries in the whole NFL:

The Giants were founded in 1925,
the Cowboys in 1960,
and this will be the 102nd time they've played each other.

AbA. I think Vettel now has the bit between his teeth.

If Alonso was human, he'd be called d-bag or d-head.

Oh, they're not too fond of each other.
Team rules? Pshaw, shove 'em up your posterior.

No, I meant Webber and Alonso. Seem to recall some commentator saying, they spent a lot of time together off track.

Not possible. Alonso has no friends, only haters. I'd like to see Massa,
Lewis, Mark and Jenson quarter him right before they quarter Bernie.

Great game, hope you had a chance to watch it.

No I didn't Scott but glad you enjoyed it.

Poor old Alonso as I said before I hope he isn't a member LOL. In this case I am glad he finished second as it keeps the championship alive. There is much media talk over here that Vettel has signed for Ferrari for 2014 but he has denied it. Sad to see Schumacher retire so ignominiously, I don't know why he came back unless he wanted to try to beat Vettel.

My above statement was wrong. It is Hamilton and Alonso who are best of mates. Spend a lot of time together outside of racing.

Yes that's right LH and Hamilton has just done Alonso a big favour in the American Grand Prix by beating Vettel. Only 13 points in it going into the last race in Brazil.

Hamilton and Alonso certainly didn't get along as teammates at McLaren.

I'd like to see Alonso leading but blow a tire on the last lap and wind up in Ipanema.

Too right Scott, Alonso got the right hump :) Re Ipanema I hear the girls there are Tall & Lovely so he will be OK :)

Hamilton spends a lot of time in the US. His partner lives there ?
