    This is what I am figuring. My buddy gave me his HBO2GO password, so I can use that. I can also go to a bar or friends houses for a game, as I often do that anyway. The only thing I am going to miss is having Sportscenter on in the background when Im getting ready in the morning.

    I've been wanting to cut cable and just have Netflix and Hulu subscriptions, along with over the air TV, but too much football and basketball would be missed if I did that. Pisses me off that ala carte pricing never took hold, because all I need are ESPN, TNT, and Comcast Sports Network for the Bulls and I'm set. The rest I can download or watch streaming.
