I am a football/soccer fan, always have been always will be. I love my football/soccer and I know there are thousands and thousands of people out there just like me.
Two weeks ago I received an e-mail from a friend of mine. He text me and said, you have got to log into your e-mail now and check out what I have sent you. I did as I was told and about 3 minutes later, I was the happiest football fan on the planet, at the point in time. I had discovered live football/soccer on the net for absolutely NO COST what so ever.
Now, we all know that live football/soccer on the box has been the cause of many, many family arguments. It clashes with Eastenders, Coronation Street, Emerdale, you know what I average. Well, now there was a way to end those rows. Football/Soccer on the PC/ Laptop and the soaps on the box. Happy Days !!
I was so excited about this. I had to proportion it with my Dad. The only problem with this, was that my Dad is very new to computers and the internet. He has been on-line for about a year now and only recently upgraded to Broadband. I couldn’t visit it him, because of other commitments, but I wanted to get him up and running with my new discovery, for two reasons.
1. My mum could watch her soaps and give her control of the far away. That maybe a step to far though !
2. My Dad could cut costs without missing his Live football. Yes I got the football/soccer bug from my Dad, bless him. He is a pensioner now, so every saved penny is a bonus.
The only way I would be able to give him access, to this great online offer, would be to write an installation, easy to follow “idiot guide,” with screenshots taking him by every step and every click. It took me longer than I thought, but the end justified the method.
I was so excited. I had to get a second opinion before I e-mailed it off to my Dad. So, I popped next door with a printed copy of my lovely, colourful guide. I sat in the kitchen with my neighbour’s wife having a cup of tea, while her hubby logged on to his PC and followed my instructions. It took him about 5 minutes, but “SUCCESS” was achieved and he was as happy as I was.
I wasted no time in patting myself on the back, but the big test was nevertheless to come. I e-mailed a copy off to my Dad. I called him and explained, what I had just sent him. He printed of his copy. I sat on the other end of the phone, with a copy of the guide on the screen in front of me.
I was really pleased. In about 15 minutes he was done. The date was Feb 17th and we were both now watching Chelsea v Norwich FA cup 5th round match, Live on our PC’s, FOR FREE and already better than that; It was 3:20 PM on a Saturday. Sorry, but to coin a phrase, he was “over the moon”. I was a very, happy chappy too !!
