Got TV envy? Source: Matt Stratton hide caption

I just got a new television — a post-holiday, pre-March-Madness, I- worked- Christmas- and- New-Years- and- feel- sorry- for- myself, present. It's the biggest TV I've ever owned — thirty-two inches of LCD deliciousness. It meets with my interior designer's approval, it's great for my favorite old movies (black and white looks awesome), and sports look amazing in HD. I can honestly say, it's the first time in my life I would not be embarrassed to have friends over to watch the big game (though I haven't got a lot of cash left over for the nachos). Which brings me to my next point: 'tis the season for wanting a better, sharper, cooler TV, as the Patriots (insert cheer/and or curse here) and the Giants (ditto) march to Superbowl LVII. It's also Rob Manker's point — we've got him on today, talking about TV envy. Have you got it? Are you a plasma/LCD/widescreen coveter?
