Yeah, I’ve been told I’m “weird” and I’m often asked “well, what do you do then?” when people find that out. I really don’t miss it, save the aforementioned hockey. While cable did exist when I was in my teens, my father was not interested in spending the money and we were encouraged to do other things than watch it. With only three channels to choose from (including public broadcast), there really wasn’t much point anyway. What’s worse is, I grew up closer to Philly than da 'burgh and the local channel only aired Flyers games on rare occasions…tough digs for a hockey fan. Did see a fair number of Hershey Bear games live back then, amazing how slow the AHL play was back then.
I have started reading more books since, especially in the past 3 or so years since I picked up a kindle, great little device.
