    Being a sports reporter obviously requires a lot of weekend work and I won't be able to make it to many (if any) of my alma mater's football games this year. Is there some form of radio gadget I could get to tune in to the campus radio station (or another station broadcasting the game) away from a computer and out of the general broadcasting area?

    I just want to be able to listen to my team's play-by-play as I'm out and about working on Saturdays this fall. HELP!

    If it matters, it's a school in a BCS conference.

    Is there portable XM or Sirius radio? I know one of them carries the games. Use it like a Walkman?

    Can you get any radio station you want on XM or Sirius? I figured it was just the pre-programmed satellite radio stations.

    You get the home team's feed of the game.

    Like with MLB on XM, there's a block of 10 channels (or whatever) and you cycle through the channels to find the game you want.

    I don't know which one (XM or Sirius) has the different football conferences, but I think all the major ones are covered.

    Have you tried ctrl-alt-delete?

    That's only after you reboot.

    because the floppy disc got stuck.
  8. do you have a web browser on your phone? you could just stream the broadcast through your phone. quality wouldn't be great, but it would be better than nothing, and you'd have wonderful portability.
