DH isn't fully on board. He likes the idea of not having to pay a cable bill, but he's a hardcore football fan and loves to play video games (mostly sports, some action/shooters). He says if it weren't for football season he'd cut it off now.
Do you think I could suggest that he watch the games at a sports bar/restaurant once a week? Heck, even if he got beer and some wings it would cost him less than cable does every month, and it would give him a chance to have some "man time" once in awhile without it disrupting the household with lots of noise (he is one of those guys that screams/cusses at the referees during games)!
Maybe for video games I can suggest he only play them after we (or at least DD) are in bed? He usually stays up a couple hours later than we do b/c he works late.

I would totally suggest going to the bar/resturant- sounds like a good deal to me. My DH would love that but we don't have a place near us for him to catch the games at. Instead he watche them on the computer- I believe he streams them live. Occainally he might see one at a friends or if the relatives are visiting at the hotel. My DH watches Celtics but I'm pretty sure football is online too. But really who doesn't like the excuse to go out?!
mother is a verb
I GOT MY !!!

Is it just football season, or does your DH follow multiple sports (I can see how it wouldn't work if you were talking football and basketball, etc.)

Well, asking guys to stop watching TV, the way they like isn't very fair. Or telling them they need to try going out and watching the games. Eventually, during the finals or whatever you won't see them for a few weeks. Seriously.
My guy generally does little of his own thing if I really think about it and we manage to go cable free and pick up all the local channels for free. He is able to watch most of the games he wants to watch that way and the rest online. And we watch as a family. I just put my feet on his lap and get a foot rub... works for me!
I think the Radio can be just as bad due to all the advertisements. All forms of media are difficult for me to like, but the sports thing... thats like me having to read a book on a kindle... NO CAN DO! I need the smell of the book and the feel of the pages.
