    And its not even playing the game. (I do that a lot anyway)
     
    I was up until 4am last night watching replays on youtube and some backlog of day9's daily.  They are entertaining and informative.  The older ones from beta are less informative on what units can be used now a days, but  the general info that is given out by the commentary really helps.  The strategies used in microing haven't changed very much.  If you are interested in the competitive online aspect of the game, but haven't checked out any replays, I would recommend doing so.  Even watching them for races you don't specifically play are informative because you get to see strategies that they can use against you.

    Those are the ones I've used the most.  Day9 is very good and informative.  He also has a sweet Diablo 3 post on his wall that I want.

    I've become addicted to watching commentated replays as well, and streams on team liquid.

    I do terran in my ladder matches, I am most comfortable with them for some reason.  Protoss isn't too bad, I'd done well with them verse the hard AIs but zerg confuses and scares me.

    Ha I have been doing the same thing, HDStarcraft has some good youtube videos too, his are pure commentary on matches but they are very informative for newer players or people who haven't played SC in awhile.

    I've been watching HD Starcraft and Husky youtube videos. I have to say, this is my new addiction too. I was never one to be able to watch sports broadcasts and thought it was the most boring thing in the world. Now I kinda get it. I guess if you know the game a little and get to listen to experienced people give play by plays then it can be really entertaining.

    Oh they are awesome.  Make sure to train the concussive shot or whatever it is called, and they will be even better.

    I just purchased and downloaded SCII yesterday, still haven't gotten a chance to do more than just watch the introduction video though. The end of the day can't come soon enough.

    I think I am in bro-love with Day[9]'s voice.  He and Brad should get together and record an album of sweet sweet dulcet tones.
