    Can cadets meet somewhere for big sporting events, to watch them, since they don't have TV's? Sponsor's house? :rolleyes:

    Our laptops come with a program where you can watch TV.

    That being said, big sporting events such as those come with special privileges. I remember last year everyone that was proficient was exempt from ESP and allowed to visit their sponsors during the Super Bowl. Most companies hosted some kind of party in their dayroom with food to watch the game as well.

    The Euro Cup is during the summer of 2012; I've always wanted to go. Would i be able to fly over and be there? When would training start?

    It would depend on your individual schedule for that Summer. You don't find out your final Summer schedule until March of that Summer. Unfortunately, as a rising Yearling in the Summer of 2012, you will not have a very flexible schedule. CFT begins around June 25th and ends around July 22nd. If the event you want to attend is not during this then there is a very good chance you will be able to attend. Otherwise, you will not be able to miss CFT for any reason short of a family emergency.

    This year during the superbowl privileges are extended to allow cadets to visit their sponsors or watch the game in the company day room. Ta

    Do they get Fox News and CBS (60 Minutes)? That sounds crazy cool, but I doubt I'll have time to use it....

    There are 35 channels.

    Fox, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, History Channel, Weather, Discovery Channel, ESPN, Comedy Central, TruTV, Fox News, FX, and TNT among others.

    Most people prefer subscribing to Netflix as far as entertainment. I've only really used the program to watch some games and news.
