Let’s talk about the campus cable outage, and the subsequent fallout from football fans everywhere. The Sunday after Thanksgiving break- as students were returning to campus to catch their favorite football team play on television- the cable was out all over campus.
All of my GHD friends were in a panic because they were already back on campus, and along with myself, could not watch the Carolina Panthers game.
I resorted to watching the game on a web streaming service which apparently was pulling the game from Canada because all of the commercials I was watching were for Canadian stores and fast food restaurants. All of the commercials revolved around snow somehow, which I found extremely entertaining.
Anyway, back to the cable outage. I live on a hall full of boys in Collins, and I don’t think they found the Canadian sports website I did, so they were in a mad panic trying to find a way to watch their sports team play. I got a real chuckle, but because I’m petty (not really, I just don’t like them ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ), I did not share my website with them.

I think its really interesting that I found the website, got what I wanted to watch, and was content with my viewing option, as long as I got to view the game. When the boys down the hall could not watch the game at all, they were unwilling or unable to think outside the box to get what they wanted.
I guess I’m a professional tv watcher or, they are just freshman who know nothing Jon Snow.
