But as is obvious, I am a Redwings' fan. Since they were playing the Chi Blackhawks, I was able to listen to them on the local radio station. It might have been nice to watch their games, since the announcers were complaining about many missed calls against my team by the refs; I would have liked to see the game to "notice" any missed calls on the BHs! Now most of the finals will be on Cable, so I will miss the games unless I go online to listen to the Redwing broadcast.
A/C would be nice when it is very hot in the summer especially at night. Since we live in the Midwest, the weather isn't way too hot most of the times; but 2-4 times a year it would be nice.
1 car isn't so bad in general when only one of us goes somewhere the other is usually at home (usually me at home, my wife is much more social).
1 TV is not a problem since we watch the same programs most of the time; and I can watch the TV programs that I miss on the computer.
We don't live like hermits; we have DSL and computers; but we (mainly me) are cheap.
