Don't know, but I'd bet if it's off all over the island, there will be some UPSET football fans later today!

Here's the deal........ If you are 4500 miles from home on vacation in the BVI, the playoffs should be the LAST thing on your mind. If the playoffs are that important, schedule your vacation AFTER football season.

Will agree to disagree with you on that one. Different strokes for different folks.

Here's the deal.....you don't get to decide what everybody else does on their vacation. Some people may even schedule their trips so that they watch the playoffs or whatever in a nice warm, sandy place. Oh the horrors!

sail2wind made a mistake. He meant to say that SoggyDollar Scott wasn't a football fan, I think.

I hate to get into a pissing match with anybody... But you really shouldn't assume things. I have been a season ticket holder fir the Seahawks since franchise. I would never consider a vacation during football season, and especially during the playoffs !!

Go Seahawks !! I smell another Super Bowl !!

Scott--well your statements are kind of a conundrum to me, but whatever floats your boat!

We have watched 5 out of the last 6 Super Bowls and playoff games in the islands. Our toughest decision is who has the best TV and reception in the islands.

Yeah, to me, other than games my team was in, I think the most fun I had watching a Super Bowl was at Stanley's in Cane Garden. We were staying somewhere down the beach--Elm, I think--and we watched the first half there and then stumbled back to the room at half time

Last June we spent our last night in STT at Emerald Beach. Spent the afternoon at their great beach bar watching World Cup Soccer which I know absolutely nothing about and had a great time!!
