    Kicked DirecTV to the curb this weekend.

    After Comcast became available at my house recently, I finally called DirecTV to cancel. My reason: they didn't sign the Pac-12 channel.

    There were other factors, but that was the reason I gave them. I had retention offer all sorts of discounts to keep me and tell me that they had tried to get the Pac-12, but the Pac-12 demanded too much money and it was too expensive.

    I know my termination will have no effect, but it still felt good saying it. Wish for the Ute's sake, this could get worked out.

    So far, we really like Xfinity. It has some trade-offs, but nothing we can't live with. Except... why on earth is any sports channel being broadcast in SD? Especially the Pac-12 National Channel on 410. That is absurd!

    You can't make this up. And just like in last night's episodes, it was Thoroughbreds doing "live cover."

    During the busiest part of the breeding season (Valentine's Day to mid-June) the most popular stallions would work three times a day. Say 7am, 1 pm and again at 7 pm.

    So the neophytes, when told this, would always chuckle and stammer and catcall. And some middle aged wife would always elbow her middle aged husband and say "Huh! Three times a day! Hear that?"

    One day the man turned to her and said. "Didn't YOU hear? It's three different girls."

    The most prolific of all the live coverers once impregnated 182 mares in a season. His name? Woodman. You can't make that up either. His handler once told me "He'd breed that pine tree right there."

    Read kind of a funny interview with Iwan Rheon:

    by 480ute

    arguably the most hated man on television, admits hes concerned about being narrowly defined by an indelible character. But ask a logical follow-up question what else are you working on? and the scale of his challenge becomes clear.

    Im playing a young Hitler, he replied, referring to the British television movie Adolf the Artist. Then realization took hold, and his face crumpled in mock despair: Oh, Im typecast already!

    Sucker punch Emery got married over the weekend. There has to be a domestic violence joke here somewhere ;)

    Before you all get your panties in a bunch, I don't think domestic violence is funny. In fact, my wife broke my nose once by accident while we were making dinner. Long story...

    Simply an amazing story.

    Watched their draw against ManUtd yesterday. During the game they were showing information about their recent history. In mid April last season they were in dead last place and had to win some games the last few weeks just to stay up in the top flight (the bottom three teams go down), and as recently as 2008-2009 they were in League One (third division).

    Season of a lifetime for their loyal fans.
