Saw this post on Reddit and couldn't help but share. Being a cord cutter for the past several year this pretty much sums up my experience, and the experience of countless others who only want to pay for specific programming. Why should customers have to pay for 2000 channels of stuff I won't watch, half of which is in a foreign language.
Thank you South Park!! Once again a truly epic breakdown in less then 2min of something we all have to suffer with.

Today it was announced that Jack Del Rio will be taking on the additional role of Head Coach for the Broncos while John Fox is recovering from having heart valve replacement surgery this morning.
John Elway is giving a press conference now talking about how the energy the Jox brings to the locker room will be lost, and that cannot be denied. There are few coaches left in the NFL that show the kind of emotion Fox does during a game, and I can only imagine that continues in the locker room.
The most important games the Broncos play all season is during this second half, kicking off with a conference game against the Chargers on Sunday. It's going to be imperative the Broncos come out swinging against the Bolts, and with two games against KC still looming in the future any hopes of winning the conference the Broncos are going to need to win out against a still undefeated Chiefs team.
Jack Del Rio certainly has his work cut out for him and I know all of us in Broncos Country are behind him 100%. Mile High Salute to John Fox on a quick recovery, we look forward to your return just in time for our playoff run to the Super Bowl.

This Saturday I got to hangout with my friend and owner of Fallbrook Brewing Company, Chuck McLaughlin at the kickoff of San Diego Beer Week on the Broadway Pier in San Diego. Chuck brought a speciality for the season, Fall-tucky which has persimmons, apples and spices, as well as the Pippin Pale Ale, which was an amazing session beer with hints of apricot.
While I only attended the Saturday session, the event was really well organized and laid out perfectly. The event had a nice traffic flow for as many people that attended but didn't feel over crowded. Sure you had some of the big boy brewing companies in the region like Stone, but it was a great opportunity to hit a lot of smaller breweries I probably wouldn't have had the opportunity to try.
Besides Fallbrook Brewing's offerings, which were amazing (I might be a little biased)! The two beers that stood out most to me were Iron Fist Brewing's Anniversary Ale, which is really hard to explain but had sassafras, sarsaparilla and more, but in true Iron Fist fashion left it's mark on you. The other was Oggi's (Left Coast Brewing) IPL - India Pale Lager, a really clean hoppy lager which finished perfectly.
It was an amazing event and having the opportunity to talk to brewers from Iron Fist, Rock Bottom Brewing, Legacy Brewing etc. thanks to Chuck, the one common thread that every brewery had was good people. Each one of these owners / brewers etc., care immensely about their beer and making sure they bring great craft beer to everyone. So take a moment this week. Visit Fallbrook Brewing, or any of the other AMAZING craft breweries here in San Diego County. YOU DESERVE GREAT BEER, so go get some.

Tonight I'll be attending the 238th Marine Corps Ball here aboard Camp Pendleton, and as a DOD employee I was given the honor of receiving an invitation to this prestigious event. However, being the "unofficial" super fan of one of the greatest football teams in the NFL, the Denver Broncos, all I could think was how can I bring just a little more flare to tonight's festivities, but keep it classy? Why a tuxedo with an orange crush tie and accent handkerchief of course.
