Penn State vs. Phillies

In other parts of the state, this question has little meaning, but for those that are both Penn State football and Phillies fans, how do you plan on watching both games Saturday evening? Do you TiVo the Phils on FOX and watch the Lions play Ohio State on ABC? Or is vice versa? Or do you work that remote until the "last" button is worn to a nub? Or do you set up two TV sets and bob the head back and forth as if you were at a tennis match?

Penn State vs. Phillies

In other parts of the state, this question has little meaning, but for those that are both Penn State football and Phillies fans, how do you plan on watching both games Saturday evening? Do you TiVo the Phils on FOX and watch the Lions play Ohio State on ABC? Or is vice versa? Or do you work that remote until the "last" button is worn to a nub? Or do you set up two TV sets and bob the head back and forth as if you were at a tennis match?

I know what I'm doing: Watching the Penn State game because I'm paid to do so. But I'm sure I'll be peeking at my ESPN Gamecast in between breaks in the action and my stabs at writing on deadline. I'm getting exhausted just thinking about it.

So let me know. We'll take a running tally in the comments box. Oh, and go Phils!
