Any Sony Trinitron television owners here?

I do hope I'm wrong.  I'm the only person I know that <EM>doesn't</EM> have a plasma or HD TV.  And yes, I do get made fun of by my friends for it.  Nobody wants to come to my house on Sundays to watch the Lions on my crummy 27" CRT.<br><br>Considering how inexpensive these new TVs ar...
