can't believe after everything in this thread that this is where i'm stepping in to post this but:
Yeah, I wouldn't do that as a summer. That's pushing it
Depends on the firm. I had the world cup on one screen all of last summer and that wasn't even a little bit of a problem.
if you're bored though, I just recommend socializing w/ other summers, but again, that may be firm dependent.
Those are two very different things. When I was a SA, I also periodically followed the world cup (everyone, including attorneys, did). It's a once-every-four-years global event. Having Netflix on (esp. while marking it as "billed" time) isn't the same and it's a big deal. The firm won't check the sites that you go to or follow up but if an associate or, God forbid, a partner were to walk in and find you watching Ally McBeal, that could be a disaster. You can watch Netflix at home. You can't watch the World Cup at home after work.
Just check ESPN or text periodically. The work day isn't that long.
