Got to get those "corn dollars" flowing in, probably some govt. subsidies involved.  Grin

It's not just kids. I'm 60+. I cut the cord and moved away from the big internet providers like Shaw and Telus to get better speeds for less money. I'm paying about a third of what I used to pay and am getting faster internet with no caps. Local TV is over the air and it's great quality. 100% free. 100% legal.

Free streaming is a grey area. Corporations 'go after' companies who share content, not the individual users, but it's like playing 'Whack a mole'. Knock one company off line and two more pop up again. The biggest problems from an end user standpoint is the quality of the free streams, the fact that they aren't up 100% of the time and that you constantly have to look for a new source. When you really want to see something, it's better to pay for the HD stream.

May I ask which internet provider you use?  I'm done with shaw lol

I'm on Vmedia (Cable 75 with free TV for 6 Months for $50/Month) mostly because you can get 100% legit TV through them. TekSavvy and Lightspeed are other good options in Calgary, but you have to find your TV elsewhere.

And that's the difference between growing up in Kansas versus the Red River Valley.  If you grew up in Nunavat, the game would probably be Icehole....

They call it corn hole so its corn hole. Bean bags have little metal ball bearings, corn bags have corn.

Nah... Bean bags have beans in them, ask my dog. Sounds like you have one of those 70's era ball bearing bags, Russian I think?

It has the makings of a classic off season thread...

so far we have learned about a cornhole championship broadcast on ESPN which essentially is a bean bag toss you find in preschool and kindergarten rooms

debate on what "bean bags" are made of - ponder that for a minute, just let it sink in and enjoy the simplicity of that debate

Happy Holidays folks!!

Agree 100%, I want guaranteed access to CFL games and the option of watching them whenever I can, and I don't mind paying for it.  A complaint I have about YareTV is that they leave the commercials in even on the replays of games which is so annoying, anyone know if it is the same for TSN Go Video on Demand?

TSNgo does not have the commercials of the original show but does stop every so often for a 30 second Coors Light commercial.

I heard from an Internet friend that those Russian bean bags containing ball bearings are actually radioactive, a clever scheme to trick the West into paying for their nuclear waste disposal program!!! !!!

I was looking for a 5" hole saw for ceiling tiles to install lighting in the basement, and kept seeing "cornhole saws".  Finally had to look it up, they actually sell saws specifically for making corn hole boards.  It sounds like it is a pretty big "sport"... maybe not as big as pro bowling (as opposed to ProBowling) but still big enough to sell tools to make the props.
