The NBA has cancelled the first two weeks of the season. Hard times call for sacrifice, and this year it’s going to be your hoops habit. While coping with the withdrawal, here are ten things you can do instead of watching Lebron James choke in the fourth quarter.

1. Take up knitting.

2. Check out that new Facebook all the kids are raving about.

3. Yearn.

4. Watch The Rosie Show. (Someone has to.)

5. Get drunk with the TV off for once.

6. Grow a mustache for Movember.

7. Play death pool with the fall TV lineup.

8. Watch sports with helmets, pads and grown men who aren’t afraid to touch each other instead.

9. Occupy Wall Street.

10. Start the XBA.
