Out of the Blue

Happy Free Shipping Day 2012. Also, Happy birthday Miss Awesome!

Our FiOS installation did not go as perfectly as it could have, though we didn't have any of that dramatic blow up your house stuff some experienced from the earliest days of this. When things concluded yesterday we had Internet and outgoing phone service, but no incoming service, which would be worse if our phone numbers weren't also all screwed up. I got some of this straightened out already this morning, and the final parts of this are expected to fall into place by tomorrow. The internet part of this is pretty awesome, as though it's hard to detect the speed difference, there is an odd latency in loading webpages that's gone away since the changeover, which is inexplicable, but cool.

From a Simmons article:

For instance, here's an e-mail from Amnon in Bergenfield: "I took my kids to the Jets-Cardinals game. Early in the third quarter a safety announcement played over the PA. It said, 'to report an issue at the stadium text 78247.' My ten-year old daughter turns to me and deadpans, 'Can we report that Sanchez sucks because it is a serious issue at this stadium?'"

Anyway, I gotta say that it's not all Ryan's fault. They try to get Peyton so desperately, basically saying "we're done with Sanchez." While they are doing that, they trade for Tebow (costly trade too), basically saying "Not only are we done with Sanchez, we're not even keeping him as a backup." Then they fail to get Peyton, and give Sanchez a 30 million dollar extension.

What the fuck is Ryan supposed to do? He has Tebow for whom the franchise traded some good stuff, but he can't play him because then he has to sit the guy they just gave 30 million too.

This entire clusterfuck was orchestrated by an absolutely insane GM. of course, said GM will happily keep his job while Ryan gets fired.
