For Those About To Skip Work, We Salute You

soccer on tv For Those About To Skip Work, We Salute You

Tried listening to the BBC Five Live live broadcast from work a few minutes ago to listen to the Germany v Costa Rica match, but alas — for those souls outside of the UK, like me — the Beeb doesn’t have rights to broadcast the match overseas.

Probably the worst place in the world to follow the World Cup is the East Coast of America. The weekday matches are on at 9am, Noon and 3pm ET… right through our workday. At least the people on the west coast of America can catch the 6am PT match before heading to their 9-5 job.

I’m curious. How are you watching the World Cup? Are you playing the “don’t talk to anyone and don’t log on to the Internet” game where you’ll watch the matches on tape tonight? Have you found a boss that’s willing to let you watch it? Do tell. I and the rest of the readers would be interested in hearing from you.
