Sports talk

I am from time to time a sports nut. The trouble with the sports I follow is that you need pay tv to watch the games. Assuming they show the games you want to watch on pay tv that is.

 I can't afford pay tv, so I don't get to watch the sports I like.

 I could watch AFL, but I hate that with a passion.

 Instead I want to watch games that are hard to see - typical.

 I want to watch the A-League football - can't watch my own Nation's football games on free to air. I can't even watch the National Team, the Socceroos, play on free to air! And you can write off the J-League (go Urawa Reds!) completely.
 For some reason I can watch the Euro Games, some Italian and South American games that are on at the moment, but meh.
 Thank **** that I can watch the FIFA World Cup games - but that is only on once every four years. I can't watch any of the qualifying games though - only the World Cup finals.

 I want to watch Super 15s Rugby - can't watch my own Nation's national teams on free to air.

 I want to watch International Rugby games - they show some of the games the Wallabies play, but usually at stupid times. But, I am not a Wallabies fan, oh no, I am an All Blacks fan (long story), and unless they play Australia, I don't get to see the games on free to air.

I love the NHL (Ice Hockey) - no chance of that ever being on free to air.

I am into MLB (Baseball) - shock horror, they do show some of the games on free to air, but it is a lucky dip as to what team you get to watch at stupid times of the day.

So, as you can see, as a sports fan (of real sports that is) in Australia I don't get to watch many games.

Well, I think I have hit the jack pot. I found a web site that streams games live - and I will be able to watch my favorite teams play: Melbourne Victory, Urawa Reds, the Socceroos, Vancouver Canucks, New York Yankees and, best of all, the All Blacks.

 Pretty Freaking Awesome if you ask me.

Oh, and you can see one of the reasons I am an Urawa Reds fan:
