    Comcast has always had customer service issues — this is putting it lightly — but never has it been easier to share stories of bad Comcast service and spread them online (using high-speed Internet service with XFINITY® from Comcast!). This summer, a customer was left on hold for three hours until Comcast closed. In October, a man said he was fired from his job after he complained about Comcast service. To perhaps try to stem the tide, Comcast has launched an app that allows you to track the contractor coming for a service visit. The app alerts customers with scheduled appointments when…

  • How New England Patriots Safety Patrick Chung Has Revitalized His Career

    9 Nov 2014 | 4:43 pm
    Patrick Chung was a promising safety out of Oregon, but after a dismal career was on the brink of irrelevance after lasting only one year with the Eagles.  Yet his time with the Patriots has given his career a boost. He’s become a utility safety that can cover the deep half as well as step up and fill the box, which has been key for the Patriots who have a much depleted front seven. Now that the Patriots are transitioning from a zone heavy team to a more man to man coverage defense, Chung’s physicality has become increasingly vital to the team’s success. Being able…
  • Another Painful Year For Philadelphia Eagles Fans

    26 Sep 2014 | 12:31 pm
    The Eagles finished last year’s season with a 10-6 record and part of that success was the fantastic play of quarterback Nick Foles. A third round pick in the 2012 Draft, Foles completed 64 percent of his passes, posted 9.1 YPA and an astounding 27 to 2 touchdown to interception ratio. It’s hard to imagine Foles repeating that kind of performance as the Eagles will have a tougher schedule this year. Plus, he’ll be a target for opposing defenses that  will have the entire offseason dissecting coach Chip Kelly’s offense.  Plus, he’ll have to play without…
