Actually I am living just North of Charlotte, sort of in between Kannapolis and Gastonia. It is about perfect for me as I am quite near the plant where I have a job as sort of the resident tech guy. It is a little factory that makes specialty items and you have a good bit of automation which is where I come in. It is not something I was trained to do, but in my last job I picked this stuff up along the way. I do that and other things. Today I am looking for direct tv in Gaston, because I have decided that I just do not care too much for what is on offer from the cable companies. I can get U verse here and I am going to get the internet package from them, but I figure that for now I will get the direct tv on the theory that it is pretty cheap and I am going to want the NFL Sunday Ticket package pretty soon.
Obviously I am a fan of the San Francisco Forty Niners in the NFL and this is not their territory. You can pick up the Carolina Panthers on Fox and that is the same channel that would play the San Fran games if you were going to get them. If it was the territory of an AFC team then I would probably get a Niner game on occasion and obviously their home games are usually going to be on at 4 PM Eastern time after the local game has gone off. However you only get a double header on Fox every other week. So that means the chance that they will show the game that I want to see locally is really quite low. Obviously I expect the Niners to be very good too.
