    I guess I won't be paying $50 for UFC anymore.

    I'm watching it LIVE, for free.

    Thank you, to the Broncos fan who runs the site and gave me two great shows for nuthin'.

    Rep to GP for talking major smack at the end of the game on their feed. I fell off my chair laughing ;)

    edit: you know the message, apparently I rep'd you before

    If anyone missed the game, just click on the link and go to archives. Then click "watch my last broadcast" and fastforward it to the 5:30 mark

    In layman terms, it's not legal.

    WOW. I found out so much about that site in about 20 minutes of watching it.

    Apparently, it's a startup company based in California. They broadcast flash-driven media streams, which is why they can support so many viewers at once. However, it's like a speakeasy back in the Prohibition Days...while you're watching the live media stream, people in high places are trying to locate the source of the stream (sort of like getting "ping'd" by a sonar depth finder) and at any moment the stream can just, well, stop.

    LOL. You should have seen the chat room when watching the Lesnar-Herring fight. We saw 30-seconds of it, and the stream stopped dead cold. People were BEGGING the stream to stay on, but the main person (code-named "sportcenter") said he had to bail on the stream NOW.

    It was like being right in the middle of one of those technology thriller movies where someone hacks into a corporate mainframe and a person from a remote location says "You gotta' get out. You gotta' get out NOW! They're onto you. I repeat: They know you're there!" (static) cue the dark, ominous music...

    LOL. What a blast. This was far better than watching it on TV like I had hoped. LOL. Simply entertaining all the way around. Great night. Awesome night.

    LOL. Didn't know any of "us" would see me doing that.

    The guy (code-named "sportcenter") was a Broncos fan, and so we were watching what HE wanted to watch...which was Broncos football, and so I took a gamble by talking trash so badly to the massive amount of Broncos fans who had tuned in to watch it.

    Thanks for the bump.

    Do you know if this can still be done? I tried clicking on the link and it said that the sportscenter channel is down for 24 hours.
