Am I desperate enough to watch NYCFC's e-sports guy play a game of FUT against the Whitecaps e-sports guy today?
There is a full replay of the 2011 champions league game between Man U and Barca. Great way to watch the legendary barca team of 2010-11.

I am by nature impatient with people who don't know how to walk in public: not staying to the right, clustering at choke points instead of in wide spaces a few yards away, walking 3+ abreast. But now it's all I can do to not just keep yelling "SIX FEET YOU FUCKING MORONS!"
Felt the same way today on my run. Stay to the right, not the middle. If a family, stay bunched and not scattered with the kids everywhere. And stop Fcking playing basketball and handball. There’s literally a group of our population that is actively testing Darwinism.

Amazon yourself a fire stick as a short term solution?
We have both a Fire Stick and Apple TV, and watch most of our TV via streaming. But for current first run network shows the DVR handles everything. Plus my wife has about 10 movies recorded from TCM that she's working through and she would prefer not to lose.

But good news: once again rebooting fixes everything. The error message just said the unit hard drive was broken, and to call and order a replacement. But I knew better. This morning before calling I briefly disconnected power, the machine restarted, noticed the hard drive issue, and fixed itself. It must have been a file system corruption. But not before we watched NCIS in real time last night. With commercials. Like animals.

Commercials are the worst. The lack of them may be the biggest single reason I got into soccer.
