It’s one of the best parts of life for many people; a night in front of the game is a great way for you to have your friends around. Picture it; your friends, a few beers, and the obligatory chips and dip, but what can we do to ensure that our sports night is a bit more than just a few people gathered around a TV?
Setting Up The Feed
The big thing with a lot of games, especially for those streaming it, is that it is a bit frustrating to have people crowded around a laptop watching it, but what we can do is beam it to the big TV, but without it losing any picture quality. On mywindowshub.com there is a guide on how to convert MP4 files to AVI which can ensure that you don’t lose that picture quality. There is nothing more frustrating than watching a bunch of pixels! And don’t forget, you could sign up to some of the streaming sites that offer free trials. If there’s a bunch of games you want to watch, but they are so far away that your free trial won’t last that long, hop on to the next service and use another free trial.
Make It A Bit More Competitive
There is nothing wrong with a bit of friendly betting to make things a bit more interesting. A lot of people are quite against betting, but if you want to have a little friendly gamble between yourselves, then why don’t you do so? If you want to take it a bit further, you may want to actually put money on your team to win. If you do have concerns about this, safestbettingsites.com has a list of betting exchanges where you can bet for and against a team to win or lose, giving you a taste of a little bit of gambling. But, of course, always do this with a bit of common sense.
Clean Up After Yourself
This is especially true if you’re living with someone who you’ve kindly forced out of the room for the next few hours. After all, if you’re cohabiting with your significant other, then you may think that you finally have the living room to yourself, but, be warned, your every move is being observed! So, put simply, use coasters! You don’t have to be OCD about it, but at least after the game is finished, you would expect a little bit of mess, so ensure that you tidy up after yourself and it’ll make life a bit easier for you, and you can get some sleep safe in the knowledge that you haven’t frustrated the powers that be!
Yes, a sports night may seem a little bit of a cliché. But, if you don’t see your friends much, it’s a perfect opportunity to get people round and relax. Because most people have their own streaming services now, this can be a long-forgotten social function. But, maybe it’s time to bring it back?
