Today I started a new habit of watching football (soccer) games on TV. Just play the football game in its 2x speed (using VLC's fast forward playback) and play music on iTunes, just randomly. I can't hear the commentary but who cares? Much better than being annoyed by Roy Hudson's freaking commentaries.
Watching a couple of games in its full length is kind of boring, and always makes me sleepy during the game, unless it's really an exciting game or a live broadcasting. This way I don't get too bored but still can enjoy the game.
