CBS wouldn't let me watch the game they streamed on their website because I was outside of the United States... whatever.
I slept late today with no really big plans.

I went over to the Supermarket and got some food for the day. 3 euro for four bananas, a can of salted peanuts, a bar of chocolate, and a croissant.

I went back to the hostel with one goal: Find a way to watch the LSU v. Florida game that was to air at 3am local time.

I thought it would be easy because CBS was streaming it live online but then I realized it wasn't available outside the US. I wanted to scream, "BUT I'M AMERICAN DAMNIT!!!" but I figured it would fall on deaf ears.

A buddy at the hostel suggested I remotely access a computer's desktop back home and watch it that way so we started to try it out. A hostel worker saw us and told us we had to stop because remote desktop access is illegal in Greece. I have no idea if he was telling the truth or if he just didn't want us messing with the computers, but that was besides the point. Again, remind me never to leave home without my own laptop again.

Finally Kyle came though for me when he set up his laptop and his webcam right in front of Mom and Dad's plasma. The video was sufficient but the audio was excellent. I couldn't have asked for better considering my circumstances. I even got to hear Maggie barking at two different parts of the game. I guess she was cheering on the tigers??

The game started at about 3-3.30 I made it until about 6 before I got fed up and went to bed. .

Thank Abby, but why would I want to watch that if I hadn't seen it haha??

And tell me about it Keegan. I think we need we just need a bit more experience at the QB position. Our offense wasn't in much of a rhythm all game.
