For Christmas this year, BP and I moved into the new century. We finally got a flat screen television.
The Story: In trying to be frugal, we decided that since our old TV still worked we would keep the 100 lb big box circa 1994 TV that B got when he started college. The bad part is that I have one just like it in our bedroom. Yes, and they still work fine... until the World Series this year and the Cardinal were playing in the World Series. We are not huge sports fans. Ok, I'm not a huge sports fan except when it comes to Cardinals Baseball. We love our Cards. However, when the Series was on, our local TV station had the game in wide screen which was great if you have a new wide screen. We didn't. Therefore, we had to keep up with the score and the pitch count on our cell phones. Not fun at our house. B gave up and went to a friend's house. A friend who had a giant flat screen. B quickly made
his our Christmas wish list. Here is the before.
