I don't and don't plan on it. But if there was a reason, the only reason I would put one there is for baseball. Not to sit and watch but to see some great play on replay or something. I listen to the games on the radio out there and every once in a while will run into the house to see those plays.

Out in the garage, my treat is my record player. I put albums spinning that I have had for 40 years, that I listened to while working on my first car. I really enjoy that.

Wow, wish I had that in my living room. But out in the garage I could certainly see putting on American Graffiti while working on my car. I never get tired of that movie. I don't have to watch it, just hearing the lines would be a gas while working on a hotrod.

As I said I don't have to watch it, just hearing the lines is a gas. Even if it were playing with the screen off, the sound track and dialog of that film is so great I would be fine with just hearing it.

You are right though, there are things you could be doing on a car that it would be distracting from creating something. But some of it like simply blocking out a body for instance something like that playing wouldn't get in the way of anything.

Hell, I often get side tracked when one of my old albums are playing on the turn table too. Love that music!

Exactly.. Can't see the forest for the trees.
