I currently sit here in front of my TV/PS4 and my computer and haven't really been glued to football for the entire day like any normal Sunday.
My cheapness is partially to blame but I'm going to instead focus all of my blame elsewhere.
First, I pay good money to have the NFL Sunday Ticket. In fact, Directv and the Sunday Ticket are set up at my parents house and I shell out the extra money for MAXX so that I can stream the games from my phone, tablet or PS4 while at my house or on the go so that I can still watch football since we don't have cable at our place.
That being said, with the amount of money that I (and many others) pay it would be nice if we could watch all of the games. I didn't get to watch the Detroit/Atlanta game this morning (even though I woke up for it) because it was on FOX.
Ok, I can deal with that although I missed a hell of an ending.
The 10 am games I watched (kinda) the Cincy/Baltimore game which ended great but was boring for most of the game. I really wanted to watch the Patriots game but couldn't due to NFL Blackout policy. I wanted to watch Seattle but couldn't due to antiquated policies.
Ok, skip to the middle games and what do I want to watch? Of course I want to watch my Steelers as I have pretty much every fucking week this year. In fact, this is a HUGE game for us as we are playing the red hot Colts who are blazing teams with Andrew Luck and cast. But "Due To NFL Blackout policy that game cannot be played."
Oh for fucks sake. So, I have to settle for the Browns (not a chance) or the Eagles/Cardinals game and while the Eagles/Cardinals won't be a bad game it's not my Steelers and by default I'm already agitated and annoyed and just generally pissed off and don't feel like watching inferior teams play.
Fuck The NFL.
To top it all off I'm normally supposed to work on this Sunday but I requested it off because this is normally a Sunday that my wife has off so what happens there? Her boss decides to screw her over and schedule her on her day off and have her work 9 straight days before a day off.
9 straight working days for a pregnant chick who is going on 7 months pregnant and when she mentions it to him he says "oh, I thought I was hooking you up by giving you a 3 day weekend."
The guy has his head up his ass and no sense of what it is like to actually work at this point.
So to recap - I'm not spending the day with my wife and I'm not watching a single football game that I wanted to.
And I can't head out to watch the Steelers game because I have two boys with me who can't sit at the sports book or a bar or whatever to watch it with me and even if they could they would be bored off their asses.
To make matters worse I need one set of level 70 legendary leg armor so that I can complete my level 70 collection for my trophy on Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls (which is one of 3 left that I need) but instead I have had 10 legendary weapons drop, 5 legendary plans, 2 shields, a necklace, a ring and a few others but no legs....none.. I also have spent about 500 in blood shards and haven't gotten a single legendary (or even a set piece) for what I want.
I swear the game knows that it's my last piece and is basically saying "screw you hippy."
Happy Sunday all.
