About five months ago, when quarantine was at its peak and I was desperate for sports, I was thinking about how cool it was going to be to have the Masters weekend coinciding with football. When you have no content and you are starved for some, it makes the thought of an overload of content very appealing. Now, here we are 5 days away from Masters Sunday and NFL Sunday colliding, and I’m stressing about what I’m going to watch.
Here’s a little background info about the situation. I’m 25, I’ve cut the cord, and I have Sunday Ticket streaming (not to brag). I’ve got my brother-in-law’s login to watch most channels, but CBS is wild and doesn’t let you stream without getting CBS All Access. Since I’m not a geriatric, I don’t have CBS All Access but could easily sign up for a free account this weekend. That means streaming the Masters on my laptop.
Now here’s part two of the situation. I will have to decide whether to watch the Masters on my laptop thus getting a worse golf experience but still having the ability to stream the NFL on my TV. Or I could decide to hook my laptop to my TV and watch the Masters on the big screen which leaves me incapable of watching the NFL on Sunday.
This also leads to the next issue. If I’m streaming the Masters on my laptop and the NFL on my TV, is my apartment’s WiFi going to be good enough to handle both? I honestly don’t know because I haven’t been put in this wild predicament before.
I think when it comes down to it, I’m going to have the Masters on my laptop and the NFL on my TV. Thank you to anyone who read this for allowing me to air out my first world problems that have been eating up my mental space for the last couple of days.
And, golf and football gods, if you decide to do this again in the future, please do it at a time when I feel comfortable going to sports bars and we’re not in the middle of a pandemic. Thanks.
