    Default Fan watches NFL game on laptop, gets $28,000 phone bill

    Take an AT&T wireless card with an unlimited data plan, add a laptop loaded with Slingbox software, and toss in a diehard Bears fan on a Caribbean-bound cruise ship that was still sitting in the Port of Miami.

    What could go wrong? A $28,000 phone bill, that's what.

    Unless you have money on the game, why in the world would you be spending time on a cruise shop watching a football game on a laptop??

    I'm sure there were better sights to see.

    Have you ever been stuck on a cruise ship in the Miami Port.?....they start plying you with drinks from the moment you step aboard, and aside from the life boat drills, there is not much going on...casinos don't open, cafes aren't open....just booze and the pool

    Not to worry. He can probably get stimulus money for this. With all the earmarks in the plan there is definately something that can cover it.

    Just doing my part for the Swedish lesbians.

    Of course, that embarrassing little exploit immediately made the top five of my wife's list of things to bring up when we argue about money.

    She's a greal gal, though. I don't know how she puts up with me sometimes.
