Thank goodness for YouTube...

I'm sure y'all know that you can find many amazing (and a lot of not-so-amazing) and wonderful things on YouTube.
From yoga routines to car maintenance how-to's, you can save a lot of money. There are craft tutorials, music videos, audio books, old movies, new movies, news footage, video game analysis, and so so so so much more.

Honestly, I don't actually spend a lot of time on YouTube. I pull up the yoga occasionally and listen to music when I don't have access to my iTunes.

Do you know how hard it is to catch much of any kind of sports on regular TV with basic cable??? Nearly impossible.

Even with sports venue/network apps, you have to enter your IP login and if you don't have the right cable package, you're still S-O-L. Last year, I subscribed to and got to watch any and every hockey team/game I wanted. EXCEPT the STARS... Why??? Because I live in their blackout zone or whatever the heck they call it. Yeah. Needless to say...I will be changing my cable package starting in September.

In the meantime, better cable wouldn't do do me any good because hockey season is over, but you know what there is? YouTube. :0)

I can find old games on YouTube. Why would I want to watch an old game? Well, first of all, beggars can't be choosers. Second of all, I just want to watch some hockey. Not always watch even, just listen to the play-by-play in the background is good enough. Why hockey over music? That I can't say.

But I can say, thank goodness for YouTube!

Have you used YouTube for one of the a-for-mentioned reasons??

Share a YouTube experience with me!!

Hi Jen,

At work, I use YouTube all the time. My students use it to learn choreography from movie musicals and theatrical performances from Broadway to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We can watch high school, college, and middle school performances of plays that help us make decisions on sets and costumes. And when I can't find my British mysteries, I can often find them on YouTube.

Not to mention the countless times I've shown make-up, prop building, set building, and theatre history videos from LA to the National Theatre in London.

As far as sports go...nah. Have at it! But YouTube has saved my bacon on more than one occasion.
