I live in Oklahoma, and in the past, I'd say I watched about 150 of the games live in a given season. Since my business took off a bit and my daughter was born, that has become more of a challenge. But thank heavens for the DVR!
Now, I watch 1-2 games per week live on TV...most always the Sunday game. The other games I watch on DVR....I'm very psycho about not seeing a score or anything before I watch....which stinks when the games matter like they do now. I will normally go through our evening routine and once the kiddo is in bed, I settle in to watch...this is usually around 9:00-9:30 central time, so the Reds game is normally over by the time I start watching. I speed through commercials and stoppages in play. If I'm really tired, sometimes I will fast forward through half-innings, etc...
Bottom line, ideally I'd love to just plop down on the couch each night and watch live, but that's not my reality thesedays....but I'm still not willing to give it up and just check the score....the DVR has saved me for sure.
I'm still watching 150+ games per year, just a few hours later than most of you
Should we get into late Sept/Oct though, the DVR will not be acceptable.
