Seven Tivos - One TV
Brad Nelson doesn't need a Tivo tattoo to prove his loyalty to the company.
He has 7 Tivos connected to a single TV which can record 14 programs simultaneously. He's a big hockey fan, apparently, and records practically every game that's available. The kicker is the computer program he wrote to parse through the box scores to identify which game was most exciting, so when he's ready to watch a game, he can grab the best one.
I can't tell if Tivo is fueling his hobby of hockey or hockey is fueling his hobby for Tivo. Regardless, Tivo needs more guys like Brad Nelson.

Actually, the kicker is that he has 7 Tivos and no content to record. Last I checked, the NHL was in the middle of a lockout that had the potential to ruin the North American league. He might need to trade in the 7 Tivos and start pulling some Euro satellites to watch Euro hockey.

LOL! Yeah, I think recording 14 simultaneous episodes of "Who's the Boss" is a little less appealing for a die-hard hockey fan.
