The weekend takes on many different shapes and sizes for different people. There are the nine-to-five grinders who look forward to the weekend for some time away from their computers and desks, some time outside the office and away from the chaos of the workplace. There are the students who jump at the thought of the weekend as it acts as the reprise form the endless stream of classes and homework, papers and exams that are doled out each and every week in the classroom. Then there are the stay at home mothers and fathers who use the weekend as a chance to kick back and relax, going out with the family to the park so as to enjoy the weather and the company of the entire family together, at once. Regardless of which category you fall into, or if you fall into another category altogether, the weekend is a time for you to spend your time however you see fit – nobody telling you what to do and when to do it like may be the case from Monday through Friday. When Saturday rolls around, you can catch up on reading, go to the movies, head out for a day of shopping, prepare a long, relaxed meal for family and loved ones, take a hike with your dog, or simply stay in bed and catch up on all the sleep you lost over the past five days. The options are truly endless.
However, there are some people out there for which their weekends take on a different feel. For these individuals, the weekend revolves around Sunday afternoon, when teams from across the country take to the football field to battle it out for four quarters. Sports fans, football fans in particular, tend to spend their time away from work, the classroom or spending every minute with the kids parked in front of their high definition satellite TV set taking in as much football as they possibly can over the course of the afternoon. The fact of the matter is, while others are out for an afternoon jog, football fans would prefer to be in a pair of sweatpants, inhaling an Italian six-inch sub watching their team dominate a division rival on the opponents home field.
However, for some fans, this has become a issue. With most cable providers only broadcasting two or three games over the course of the day, fans are left out to dry if they are trying to watch their team from an out of market location. If you were born and raised in New York City as a die-hard Jets fan, but go to school all the way out west in Oregon, you are going to struggle to find any of your team’s games on your local network. That being said, with satellite TV and NFL Sunday Ticket, you can sidestep this problem by enjoying every game every week from the comforts of your own home. As a result, you can keep your Sunday tradition alive: break out your most comfortable pair of pants, throw on your jersey and grab a seat in front of the TV for what will surely be the most fun you have all week!
