I know people have talked about this before, but how do we determine whether we can get the game online? I have Comcast in Atlanta.

Just go to right now and see if it works

Ted, if you would rather not join the Alumni Association at STATS, you should be fine as a Comcast subscriber in Atlanta. Just make sure you have signed up for an account (free).

We could use all the fans we can get to come out, though. We had a great showing the first two weeks (24, 16), but only a handful showed up last week I'm told, which is understandable given that many within driving distance of Clemson went. Still it's good to have more BC fans there.

So, make it if you can, Atlantans!

P.S. We'll be upstairs tomorrow. I have not heard word of exactly where but we should have our own room upstairs (unlike the first two weeks where we were downstairs in the bridge room).

Is it crazy to try to link up my laptop with ESPN360 on it to my big screen LCD tv at home--Will the blownup image of the game look like an impressionist painting of a BC football game. I know the cables to do that are tricky, but is it even worth trying to make it happen?

DS said...

mmason -- it's worth it, at least give it a shot. i did it for the northeastern game and it worked fine

i have a macbook pro and it worked fine. i'd say give it a shot

why is Still always listed as the NYC game watch? The place sucks and there are multiple better bars where BC folks watch the games.

EagleinNYC said...

What is your beef with Still? The people that work there are very friendly and accomodating to us, they give us good drink specials, and put the game on all the TV's with the sound on. I dont see what the issue is?

Ry said...

Compared to Pat O'Brien's Still is amateur hour. I guess I don't dislike Still so much as like O'Brien's.

For a little perspective on what it means to be relegated to, my high school team just had a live, nationwide broadcast of its game on ESPN U.

BTW Bosco 35--Prattsville, Alabama 24.

The charter flight from NJ was cheaper than the BC flights to more accessible venues.

If you are trying to get on to 360 but do not know your user name and password, no worries. Comcast created one for you when you signed up for their internet service. You can get the information through live chat with a customer service rep. Be prepared by having a bill within reach with all of your account info.They will ask questions to verify who you are.

If you have your Comcast U and P and you are away from home, you can still watch the game on a computer even if the cable internet provider is a different

360 will send you to Comcast. Once you type in your U and P with them, they will send you back to 360 and the game will come on.

Please elaborate on why it is Amateur hour at Still as oppossed to PO's? I've watched many games at both and would like to understand this. Pat O'Briens has about 2 TV's the sound is awful (if its even on) and they offer zero drink specials. Still loves us there, WANTS our buisiness and does averything they can to accomodate us as best as possible.
