    Nice blog post. I came online to find exactly where to watch nfl football games and somehow came across your blog. You should create a post on how to watch football on the internet because it is a popular subject correct now. I used Google and only arrived up with this website http://www.usedshoe.com/wordpress2/2007/10/03/watch-every-nfl-game-online-for-free/ but need some much more options.
