The easiest way is probably to plug your computer into a stereo or tape recorder. Just grab a 3mm to 3mm plug, or a 3mm to RCA plug if your stereo has two plugs for line in (a red one and a black one) Then just flick your stereo to Aux In or Video or whatever its called, and set up a timer record to a blank casette. The only big problem is how reliable your internet connection is.. ie is it going to stay connected right to the end of the game.

Just adding a bit to what Iain says, since reel to reel tape recorders are not common nowadays, it it difficult to record over 90 minutes.
A VCR used as a sound tape recorder will give you 3 hours.

You might like to grab a 'keep alive' type program also so your ISP doesn't kick you off after a time of inactivity. And the score was ....................

I don't know the format of the stream, but you may be able to save it to disk.

If you can then you can set getright (www.getright.com) to start downloading at a specific time.

You can record the audio off a streaming feed using Total Recorder @ http://www.highcriteria.com/productfr.htm#prod_TR
It isn't free though..?!?!?

I use StreamBox myself, but that's another story...
