Two words Titans.....NFL Radio. All the reasons you need. ;-D


Yea I know, I really should just go ahead and get it. Especially since I have a 35 minute commute to and from work. :-?



I went and bought the boom box for it so I can listen all day at work! ;-D

I don't have the boombox, but I have also stopped listening to regular radio.

I got it for two main reasons: NFL coverage and SEC football. I am from Alabama (Roll Tide), lived in New Orleans (Go Saints), and relocated to Houston (ugh). In Houston, I don't get to watch or listen to any Saints or Bama games, and there isn't a sports radio station here that plays all of Mike-and-Mike in the Morning - it switches to Fox Radio (double-ugh) at 8 am.

Anyway, those two reasons alone were enough for me to get it, but I also love the commercial-free music and comedy station (plays clips from stand-up albums of all the best comedians). I would say if you are a Stern fan, you should definitely get Sirius, or else be doomed to drive-time talk radio.

The boombox rocks. You can listen to the music on the internet but not talk like Howard, ESPN, or NFL which is why I got it cause you can with the box.

RW--Sirius rules. I will never ever ever go back to regular radio. Worth every penny.


I gave up Sirius because I couldn't listen enough to make it worth it. They need to stream the NFL radio over the net. If they did that I would get it again in a second.

Can't get reception in the old office building :(

Yeah, I'm lucky I sit by a window and can use it or I wouldn't get reception at work either. Even if I couldn't listen at work having it for the car drive is more then worth it to me.

Yep, but only cause XM had a head start and better car deals but that is changing. I'm sure the music is good on both, I just want my NFL. ;-D
