Especially those who watch while posting in GDTs.

I'm used to standing throughout the game now since my computer is a little far from the TV. Can't afford to sit down.

Sounds brutal. I just sit on my couch with a netbook.

Desk. I type on my laptop and I watch on my desktop. Just got a 30-inch beauty today, HP zr30w. So I can see the puck better.

I've got a 32" TV in my room and I'll either be at my desk or on my bed with a laptop.

On my laptop... gamecenter.
With headphones... non-hockey-fan roommates.
And a pillow... to muffle my groans, gasps, and occasional squeals so my roommates don't think I'm crazy.

Are you rocking back and forth in a paranoid manner during the game?

It's too hard for me to watch a game through-and-through, I get way too ansy. Have to be doing something. So maybe I am puttering around in the kitchen listening to the sound on television and if something gets Bob excited I come running back into the living room and its usually nothing.

That's for road games this year, since I have season tickets now I go to all the home games and watch the recording when I get home (unless its too late). I haven't seen the recording yet for the Dallas game, I am interested in getting the guys' takes on what I saw on the ice last night.

I have decided I am not going backwards...I have had such a blast going to the games I am going to renew for next year, and try to upgrade. Sure its expensive as hell and my budget really doesn't allow for it (thank God for credit cards), but I am not going to live forever and its one of the few things I really enjoy doing.

Wish I had done it sooner.

Although if the Kings make the playoffs I will want to go to the games, and that might just break my budget.

In regard to the road games, some are on way too early for me, I am still at work at 4 p.m. PST and I miss most of the game by the time I get home; maybe just in time for the third period or the end of the game. That sucks. In that case, I record it for entertainment value later.

The position changes but always involved are beer, an iPad, a large flat screen, and my wife. She's what makes it fun.

Usually sitting about 5 feet from my TV. On the edge of my seat leaning even further into the TV with my back hunched over. I usually don't post on the boards during the game. Most games I'm watching are slightly delayed on DVR. I live on the east coast and get out of work at 11 pm. So I usually watch the game from the begging using the DVR so I stay away from here in order not to know the score.

Yelling & screaming & frothing at the mouth.

Of course, I do that regardless of whether I'm watching a Kings game or not, so I'm not sure it's particularly helpful to you.
