Out of the Blue

I mentioned recently that our phone outage following Sandy has lead to a FiOS install here, as Verizon is not going to get around to repairing copper outages for months. After a little confusion about our install date, the guy is actually here on a Sunday (they must be super busy, as he also mentioned that there may be a wait for a cherry picker since they are so backed up). Presuming this goes smoothly (which has not always been the case with this service) we are going from a ridiculous amount of bandwidth (36 Mbps) to an even more ridiculous amount of bandwidth (75 Mbps). It's hard to imagine being able to tell the difference, though I will certainly try my best. I'm a little nervous about relying on VOIP for phone service, but the weather-related outages on our landline were so frequent that this will probably end up being more reliable anyway.

I didn't even think the interference call was much bullshit.

60 yard pass to receiver who trips over his own feet into the end zone, and the Patriots get the ball on first and goal at the 1 because of a blind ref, and you don't think that call was bad?

Pass interference in the NFL is fucking bullshit. NO penalty should be worth 60 fucking yards. You can break both Brady's legs in individual instances, then go back and literally rip his head off by the face mask, and you'd get 45 yards in penalties. But a guy tripping over his own fucking feet gets 60?

The NFL has FINALLY wisened up to their previous bs overtime rules, can't they take another flyer from the college game and just go with 15 yards for pass interference? Or, failing that, don't call pass interference beyond 15 yards unless TWO referees clearly see the infraction. The blind dipshit in the end zone clearly couldn't see it, because the defender was right behind the receiver in that case.
